You know what's keeping me positively up on my toes lately?
It's not about work or my blog.
You want to know the reason why I feel like I'm on cloud 9?
After 30 years of working abroad (Saudi Arabia), my mom finally(!) is retiring from her profession as a midwife. Yes, she "pull" babies on a regular basis!
Sad fact is, her work kept her from taking care of her "real" babies. That's me and my two brothers. I think she has spent more time taking care of other people's babies other than us but that's fine. You gotta do what you gotta do! And as a mom, I think she did just right. I wouldn't be where I am right now without her efforts. Too cliche? But true.
Now for the lighter-sky-high side of things...

…I was way beyond ecstatic when I heard the news that she's retiring already. This is something that I requested her to do a couple of years back ever since I started my business but my mom is hard-headed in a way (and by nature) that she would rather work and go on and on and on. She loves to work! Period. (Whew! Just thinking about it makes me tired)

October and November? Mabilis lang yan!
You guys? What're the reasons behind your smiles?
