Yesterday, I cleared my schedule to treat my mom to lunch. We ate Greek food (my favorite cuisine, next to Italian) and had some time to talk about my late father.
After our meal, I went to Padre Pio at Libis to pray. I’ve been asking God for some favors of late, when I remembered that I must give thanks too. I did that at the chapel, and I also purchased a keychain (for my mom) and a bracelet for myself. My Padre Pio bracelet from last year’s visit has already tarnished, so I got myself a new one to serve as a daily reminder to pray, hope, and don’t worry!
Then, I watched two movies at UP Film Center. I also got myself a chocolate croissant and an Americano from Nomu. It was a privilege to relax over movies and coffee at my usual campus cinema.
Before the day ended, I came home to my new paw ear climbers from local silversmith Arajera. As usual, this isn’t a sponsored post. I just had to buy these adorable ear climbers because a fortnight ago, they were being sold for a cause. Proceeds for every sale of their dog and cat-themed jewelry went to MBY Pet Rescue and Sanctuary. Now that my handmade pieces are here, I am happy to have made a small donation to an animal shelter. And of course, it is always a pleasure to support local handmade artisans.
The day began with some Greek food, then it progressed to some prayer, film, and handmade jewelry. I must say that life is good, and it can only get better!
