Think Positive :)

Tonight my ZD bear is not feeling well :( since yesterday. I know it's a normal to our toddler get sick because not all the time they are well. When I checked his gums na mamaga na naman. No wonder why my ZD bear is sick.

Teething stage is very difficult in my part because my toddler is very sensitive. Every time I give him  food, he will spit it out. When I give him a milk he will push it away, he is very dependent in my breast milk. That's one of the reasons why I can't wean him just yet - not until all his teeth will not come out. Because I can't imagine my son without my breast milk while teething.

Everyday and night I always pray that God will sustain the good health of my family specially my toddler and my husband. Right now while my ZD is sick, also my husband's also ill at work. While we were chatting bigla, syang nawala. After a couple of minutes that he didn't reply to me, after waiting, I decided to text him, pm him on fb, and try to call him in skype. I kept sending him a text message. Then I thank God when he finally replied via chat. He said nakatulog daw sya dahil sa subrang tamlay ng katawan nya at pagod nya. Aside from that mainit daw ang katawan nya.

Right now their ship is on anchorage at USA Misisipi River. If I were there, maalagaan ko sana sya, at matulungan sa situation nya. But how? His work their is very hard because nagkaroon ng problem ang ship nila right now that's why natagalan ang standby nila. Ang higpit ng USA coast Guard (USASG) they will not allowed to load on their port until they fix their mechanical problem. And the USA Coast Guard gave them an allotted time just to finish it. That's why they needed to work double time. They have OT everyday. They would wake-up very early and they will rest late at night. Sino di magkakasakit nyan? And if ever they will not fix it, there is possibility na uuwi lahat ng crew sa Pinas at di matapos ang contract nila. So its very frustrating in their part kasi paano nalang ang family nila if ever na mangyari yon di ba? Sigh.

And while writing this post my husband texted me again and told me that they had an oil spill that they needed to fix immediately. More than 500 litters ang lumabas sa barko nila at inaagapan nila na tumagos sa river because that happens mas lalo silang matagalan at di makaalis at sasampahan pa ng case ang Capitan nila. See? just one day but ang daming nangyari.

Honestly I was really affected every time my husband is not feeling well, and I need to accept the fact that this is our life as LDRF (Long Distance Relationship Family). Now, I'm thinking my husband, thinking about my toddler, alone in our home, because my mother and father are always busy. Sometimes I just want to say a prayer just to release all of my worries and stress, but right now I always think positive in all things. God has a purpose for everything. I know He will never leave us nor forsake us. Di Siya nagbibigay ng problem na di kaya. "All things works together for good.."



Thank you for the Word of God, it is my only comfort every time I have a problem, thank you for my old temperature for my ZD bear every time he is sick it's always in my hand. Thank you for my fellow bloggers when I read your blogs it makes me feel better, thank you for my choco-milk heheh for my refreshment tonight. Thank you God because I feel much better after writing this :)

  1. I worry a lot about my husband too because of his line of work (he's an officer in the Bureau of Fire Protection). I worry most when he's sick and on duty. As much as he wants to rest, he can't and I can't be there to help him out. But I have always turned to prayers as well. God has always kept everything together.

  2. Hay, what a tough situation. I do pray that you'll be strong enough to take care of your baby and your hubby even if it's just through technology. Like you said though, God does not put us in situations that we can't handle. So kayang kaya mo yan! :)

  13. Awwww so sorry about the sad day and about your ZD bear being sick. It will all get better soon. Ika nga, "Nothing lasts forever. So if things are good right now, enjoy it. It won’t last forever. If things are bad, don’t worry because it won’t last forever either." Go lang nang go! :)

  17. I salute you, Mommy Melisa! Being in a long distance relationship is hard, much more so if you already have a family. I salute all of the OFWs doing what they are doing, for their families. Your positive mind is a blessing, so just hold on and continue praying. I hope your ZD gets better soon! :)

  22. When I was a little girl my mom was based in the US. We didn't have email, chat, or internet. We had to use snail mail and had to make expensive long distance calls. It's a lot easier nowadays although of course it's still difficult being far apart...

  37. Thinking all the positive sides is what we should do. Just like one of my colleagues shared, all blessings given by HIM is wrapped with a problem. Once we get passed on the problem, blessing awaits.

  42. I hope that you are feeling better now, and that your kid and hubby are doing well, too. A close friend of mine had a seafarer husband, too, and I remember how tough things were for her when he was off to work. Be strong! Everything will work out like they're supposed to, I'm sure.
