Josh the photographer

February 7, 2018

Just the other day, we played “mom’s photography studio” in our room. I put up the white backdrop and took some pictures of the kids.

They love to play this game and so do I. we take pictures of each other and they turn out really nice sometimes.

It’s usually the kids that get their pictures taken but this time, I wanted to do something different. I wanted to get my picture taken too.

My Notes

Wrapping up 2017 and Starting a new chapter. 2018

January 7, 2018

2017 was quite a hard year for us. The kids got sick often and in December we found out my dad might go into open heart surgery. Through prayer and faith and with the greatest doctors at 구리 한양대 병원. It was decided he could get a procedure done where they would insert stents into his blood vessels through his arm.

It was a tough time for me. The beginning of 2017 didn’t start off too well and for it to end like that, it was a tough year overall. I was kind of glad to let it go. But as 2018 approached us, my grandmother (my dads’ mother) passed away and because we weren’t that close to other family members it was a very uncomfortable funeral to attend to. Everything ended up being ok and FAMILY IS FAMILY. Right? We all knew how much we missed each other and how important FAMILY really is.

In 2017 I also found out my aunt had cancer. 2017 was just that KIND of year. It really sucked. Everything was sad and depressing.

So in the beginning of 2018, which is now. I am praying more and I am focusing on my family more. Spending more time with the kids. Working just a little bit. Blogging just a little bit. Spending time with family more is my first priority and then everything else is after that. However, I think God has more planned for me this year. It’s as if he’s saying that 2017 was just a milestone for me, to make me stronger. Now that it’s 2018, he’s got some stuff up his sleeve that he wants to show me one at a time. It’s as if all the worries and fears that I had locked away on one side of my heart is slowly being taken out and being taken care of. I know God has a lot on my plate for me to take down this year. I know he has big things planned for me. I was afraid that one day those plans would be revealed and I wouldn’t be strong enough or brave enough to take them on. But now. I’m ready. I’m ready for my turn. I’m ready for my number now.

The end of 2017

December 26, 2017

The last month of 2017. December. It’s been a hard December for my family. The year 2017 was a hard one as a whole for my family. Kaden lost his grandfather, then his grandmother (his mother’s side). Our kids got sick over and over again. From bronchitis to an ear infection, scarlet fever to a cold. It was a very rough ride.

Then, it became the toughest with my dad being hospitalized and getting stents put in. It was the worst. Our families all had a tough December. It was as if we were reminded of how important our “family” was and is.

We’re still recovering from everything and praying every day for a better year next year.

We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and wish everyone a very happy NEW YEAR.
