Different Beliefs

I grew up in a Christian family. Studied and Graduated in Catholic school. Being different with what I believe and stand for somehow, affected my academic ability in school. I thought I can survive in such different culture but I was wrong.Anyway, while on my way to work and so happened I have to do some official errands. Walking as fast as I could like I don't care if I bump anyone then I realized I'm about to bump a Catholic Nun walking in a pedestrian lane. I slowed down while walking. She's wearing a long black skirt, and a blue Vail. The nun walking slowly while cars and taxi have to stop to let her crossed the street safely.

Back to reality.... Ooppsss!!! I wonder if people would give the same respect to Christian Pastors and Elders with the same value they are giving to the Catholic Official (Priest and Nuns) since we can be easily distinguished them with their attire while on public places?

Unless, these people knew they are Pastors and Elders, Right?

Men: Why men are immature??

This is not a gender discrimination topic. I wonder why women thinks men are immature.

My husband... should I say?... At his age of 29 married with 1 kid. Is a self-centered with over flowing pride. When I gave birth.. we often fight over petty things. He cant get over with his drinking friends, often comes home late w/o informing and cant even ask if the baby and I were okay.

Can those instances be considered MEN ARE IMMATURE?

Probably, I've been expecting for him to fulfill his duty as the leader of the relationship. Though, he is a leader because I am confiding him for decision making. However, when he makes decision it would take him months - years before he can decide. Is it because its hard for them to accept what may be the consequences of the decisions they are making?

Sometimes, I am thinking if men are afraid to handle responsibilities. However, God design men to be a leader. Or this is a peer pressure to them. Probably, its there parents upbringing. I still cant get the point why men are immature?

Mother’s Day: If you made your mom cry, will your own child make mommy cry too?

Mom had just recently got out from the hospital. Before she was admitted to the hospital, she has been complaining in difficulty of breathing. My mom is consistently seeing her cardiologist to monitor her health condition. At her age of 62, we cant blame her if her health is starting to deteriorate fast.

Honestly, I dont want mom to be admitted at the hospital for lots of reason. Finances, Time, and Stress reason. I cried when mom got in to the hospital. My siblings is starting to pint point who should be responsible for my mom’s hospitalization. Among all the siblings I’m the one who is not capable of paying off her hospital bills. However, I’m the one who can speak to my mom about her condition.

At the hospital, the eldest sibling were having a small fight with our mom. Until mom really wept to tears. I understand mom straggle in life, sometimes its just hard to understand why does her health is badly affected when mom is doing nothing at home. She does not need to worry about money and paying off her utility bills since we siblings shoulder that for her.

At home while playing with my own son, I asked myself will my baby do the same to me in the future? Will he make me cry too? I pray not. I hope this incident is not a disgrace in the Lords eyes.

Happy Mothers Day!!!!
