Should rather live life close to the bird rather than waste time wishing for wings,they said. Not everyone are born equal, they said. You can aspire but you cannot have all things, they said. But you know what, I might have wings, I said.
Had the chance to be reunited with my bestfriend Carla whilst accomplishing my SSN.
I’m just so grateful that I have a generous and hospitable friend who welcomed me & my baby with open arms. Yes with my baby Zac. I am committed to give the best of everything and I know breastmilk is one of them. Having a 25-hour flight, 3 plane rides to& fro, 3 hand carry baggages plus pumping every 2-4 hours, it was very challenging indeed. I don’t even wanna think about it nymore. Anyway, it was a delightful 7-day stay.. Buffalo, NY is a very homey place, I can sleep whenever I like, eat unli pinoy foods like I’m in a carinderia (thanks to Carla’s mama) & I get to talk and bond with my friend whom I’ve never seen in more than a decade but the tight relationship is still there…we were talking like nothing has changed, well except for the subjects, we kinda take it to the higher notch a lil bit since we’re both mothers na. I’m just so happy to see my friend so successful, she’s too bashful to admit it, she doesn’t even want to be praised but I think she deserves all the glory & appraisal because she’s really magnificent & I knew she would go this far even when we were just on 6th grade. She’s got this positive energy that lifts you from dark abyss, I learnt to love studying & going to church because of her influence. We used to go to their house & eat tuyo ( my husband call it stinky fish) together with Dana & like finish the entire serving of rice from their humungous rice cooker. Her mom used to be shock by it, she’s got 6 kids but maybe it felt like 8, because we’re like their adopted children finishing off their rice supply. Hahahaha. There are so many things, so many memories I could recall but I am now a mother & have only a wee time to write so… the purpose of me making a blog is that I want to share the beautiful places I’ve been to. I promised to ingrain it in my heart but the mind is feeble so I should at least secure it in my blog site.
First off, we went to Niagara Falls, the one that links US & Canada via the Rainbow Bridge.
The next day we went to the Smith Farm, visited the Sacred Grove & Hill Cumorah. This is a very significant place for us Mormons/Latter Day Saint because it is where our Prophet Joseph Smith prayed and received the revelation about our true Church and the rest becomes history, our story.
THE SACRED GROVE
BOOK OF MORMON PRINTING PRESS COMPANY
After visiting the Sacred Grove, we went to The Book of Mormon printing press owned by Wriggt company and I learnt how tedious a job it was printing thousands of copies that it took them 6-7months to finish all of it.
Then the next 2 days we got to rest… I was able to secure everything I want, including the crumbl cookies. I can’t stop saying thank you and I hope me & my dear friend will meet again… We plan to meet up, only us, no mini-mes, just us…hopefully in Hogwarts haha. We will make it happen.
