10 Reasons to Thank God for August 2017


Other people believe that August is a month of bad luck. During this month, they don't get married, start a business, move to a new house and more because of fear that something bad might happen.

I don't personally believe in luck. What I do believe, though, is God's will. So I do not fear the month of August. In fact, to take the negativity away from my post yesterday, today, I'm counting my blessings for this month. And I'm naming them one by one.

1. Tapfluencer
My month started with a blessing. I am officially part of the Tapfluencer network for theAsianParent PH. I signed the contract earlier this month and I am thankful to God for this opportunity. I might take about this further in my future posts. :)

2. Eastwood, QC experience
Nate and I had such a wonderful time while we attended a birthday party in Kidzooona in Eastwood Mall. That is certainly not the last but one of the much more incredible bonding we will have together.

3. FHMoms first meet-up
Last month, I found this group of accommodating moms on Facebook where the admin aims to help the members find an online job. Although I'm a WAHM for years now, I want to know more about the common tools a VA uses and have a glimpse of the VA world. So I joined the first meet up and I am glad I did. I'm excited to join their first hands-on training next month. If you want to be part of the group, you can join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fhmoms/.

4. Budgeting Seminar
For the first time, I offered to teach our church youth about budgeting. I am not an expert when it comes to budgeting but I know there are things I could share them with ways to manage their income or allowance. I'm glad it was successful. I though them about the envelop system, the 10-20-70 principle and more.

5. Completed our DFA requirements
I have completed Nate and I's DFA requirements for our passport application this coming mid-September. I hope it will be smooth-sailing.

6. Domain Renewed
Hooray, www.abovepreciousrubies.com is renewed for another year! Woot! Even though I don't really like my blog domain's name, I do not plan on changing it because this name is already a part of my blogging journey. So I renewed it with GoDaddy for another year. ♥

7. Promocode's Mommy Blogger Award
I won 3rd (tie) at the Promocode's Mommy blogger awards and this is the first time for me. I consider it a main blog achievement. The winners were determined by the number of the total votes they got.

8. Hiked to Timberland
I hike every once in a blue moon and I'm happy I was able to do it again this month with Nate and the church youth. Sana, kasama si Dane sa next hike, hehe.

9. Work Bonuses
No. Not me. It was Dane and his team. Dane is now a branch manager and for 2 straight months, they've reached their target goal and were given incentives. We're both glad and grateful for it. I know they deserve it, Dane works hard to achieve it, I'm happy for him.

10. Nate's milestone
I mean who wouldn't be happy with their kid's milestones, right? At three, I can say that Nate is doing good at reading words. In fact last night, he read the following sentences on his own:
"Tita Beb is going to school."
"Clean up your bed."
"Nate is watching Moana."
"The pencil is on the bed."
"Nate loves mama."

On top of all of these, I praise God for the good health, His protection and provision. It is truly by counting our blessings one by one that we realize His greatness.

What are the major blessings you've received this month?
