I praise God for the gift of family. I feel so blessed to have the love and support of my siblings, from the time we lost our parents from an early age till now. We went through the roughest time of our lives but we stayed strong and kept our faith. For the love of God kept us together and bound us in His strength. As the youngest in the brood of 6, I was completely reliant on my older sisters. I can't imagine what life would have been without them.
Three of us migrated to Australia and my only brother and 2 eldest sisters are still living in the Philippines with their own families. Australia is now our home, but distance is no object as we always keep the line of communication open and constant.
Whenever possible, my sisters and I try to get together for a quick rendezvous. Below is my sister Evelyn. One Sunday she dropped by for a quick cup of tea with some goodies from our local farmers' market.
Thank you all for visiting and for leaving your lovely comments. It sure does make my day sweeter.
Wishing everyone a happy week!
This week I'm joining Martha's Favourite for Tea Cup Tuesday
Katherine Of The Dedicated House for Anything Blue Friday
Sandy of Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday
I gave her a bunch of Chinese Chrysanthemums (from our garden).
We enjoyed some choc brownies, croissants, passion fruit and white choc slice
These beautiful tulips added some sunshine to our tea setting
Even Ms Bee can't stop buzzing about it
Moment on our lips. Forever on our hips (but I can't help myself coz they're so yummy!)
She has an affinity for birdcages too.
My recent pre-spring bouquet
Daffodils, poppies and some sweet smelling sweet-peas
Quite perfect in my blue willow vase
