Our Body works more than a Machine

The alarm rings and you need to wake up, say a little prayer before getting up in bed. Then the race starts. You will need to put things clear inside your room while going to the bathroom to take a shower already thinking what clothes to wear for the day. After all the 1-2-3 inside the bathroom and dressing up, you'll take a look of your kids still sleeping in the bed. You'll kiss them one by one whlle whispering I love you and be good always. Hoping that they will be able to hear it in their dreams. Then you open the door and take a quick breakfasr while telling all he last minute reminder to the nanny. Then yuo will leave the house rushing to catch up the bus and train to beat the clock in the office. At the office another race to fight, run from here to there. From one job to another, from one boss to aother. Really a tough job to do and you will see ont the clock, it's already 6:00 in afternoon, time to go. Again, rushing home, thinking of the next things to accomplish at home. Upon openning the door's home, you'll see your kids waiting there saying Mommy welcome home and will kiss you one by one. There for a while you can breath and smile and laugh sometimes by the funny comments you received from them. After changing clothes, you'll take the dinner and talk to your family of what happened for the day. Ofentimes, it's their activities not yours. Then, you'll start to clean them, see all the school works and starts to tuck them in bed. And before you know it's almost always midnight then you realize, you also need to rest. Then you will say to your spouse what a day- which is actually everyday routine. Then ofcourse you still need to discuss some things with him or her because the whole day is very much occupied by busy work. And after that you will say a prayer of thank yuo Lord for the gift of life and hoping for another day to come. And before you knew it, the clock is already saying good morning to you!

This is something we can all relate to as parents. Or perhaps something we can all learn from as well. The thing I love about you is your great optimism. The energy that you have is so vibrant. Your dedication towards your family and work is so inspirational. You are so original and full of charisma. And I love your simple prayer of "Thank you Lord for the gift of life!"

Hi again, tomotomi! I always remind myself that the great things in life do comes from small and simplet things that we have. And I believed that in simple prayer that we do each day, that makes our day a less stressful. And being dependent on our God's grace is a humility in each and everyone of us that enables us to do good to others and feel better about ourselves. For the br award, you deserve it! Keep on posting good responses!!!

Thanks for the possitive comments. Yes, this is part of being parents. And we should face it with optimism. Because once you started to question and complain that started the problem. This is more on a commitment than a responsibility being a mother, a wife and a career woman. We can always opt out and choose which one is will be comfotable, but oftentimes that makes us unhappy in the end. I believed that is like a whole package of me. And for sure I cannot do it alone without the grace of our God. He alone can stregthen me this way and keeps me pushing day by day.

Wow, seems to me that you have a busy day! Maybe I have to say I am now luckier than you do, for I am still single. But the single days will pass away soon, my mom and dad push me to the marriage agenda. So boring! Even though I am seemingly luckier than you are , considering that I am single, I still have 5 busy days in a week: getting up, brushing teeth and face, cooking breakfast, doing morning exercises, squeeze to work by bus (I am not rich enough to buy a car), saying hello to colleagues, then starting a routine work, having lunch, have a half-hour rest, then continue to work. It is getting darker and darker before I realize that there is still a lot of odds and ends that I need to deal with. Such a day!

You're right, even if we are single or have a family of our own, I believed we are already bound to the busy life of today's world. I, for sometimes think that we got our schedules ahead but then again we sometimes ran out of time to meet them. Sometimes I wonder the most of the things must not be on planned basis because once you do and did not meet your expectations, you cannot avoid but to be disappointed at times. Sometimes, the best things do happen with those unplanned approached that we have.

Yes it is. Our bosy is one, with no spare parts to purchase and do the overhaul. Though we have the technology arrounds us that mimicsthe work and functions of our body parts and systems, but the original performance will never be the same again. Our body is God's temple, that's why we should not over use it, or else we will suffer at the end.
