Today I Am Thankful...

 .... for the good weather. Not too sunny but not rainy either.

 ... for the afternoon nap with Miguel, that is, if 4 hours of sleep can still be called a 'nap'. I have a hard time making him take afternoon naps so this moments are precious.

... for the yummy chicken soup we had today. It was prepared specially for Miguel as he was a bit under the weather with cough and colds. After several bowls of this and a few hours of zzzzs, he's good as new by the end of the day.

... that Daddy was able to come home earlier than expected. He had warned us that work will pile up starting this week and so he would be coming home later than usual. We are glad it didn't start today.

Thank you!

Sweet Sunday

I woke up refreshed and renewed this morning after sleeping most of Saturday to catch up on some needed zzzzzs. I was in lalala land for almost 16hrs with a 4 hour 'break' in between. Sweet, right?

The first Gratitude Prompt from the Abundant Mama Project was posted today. It's a group I joined recently where I get positive energies from mamas from across the globe.  

By 10:30am we were in the Chapel of St. Michael the Archangel in Trinoma to attend the mass. Having a chapel within a mall is truly a blessing for mall rats like me. 

Lunch was a splurge as we went Greek at Cyma. Yumminess to the max!

Horiatiki Salad (Greek Village Summer Salad)

Steak Souvlaki
Pastitsio (Baked Macaroni) 

And for dessert.... a cup of our favorite gelato at Gelatissimo

 Roasted Almonds for me, Strawberry for the little fella, and Macademia Nuts for Daddy

Sweet Sunday indeed!

For Our Dearly Departed

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. 
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
