Working From Home with My Hubby

As my hubby and I have decided to spend more quality time with our little Baby Eieo, we continuously pursue home-based jobs and simply earn more from home. We never thought that this could be very rewarding, amazing and a lot fun. Earning from home just gives us enough time to be together without sacrificing anything particularly our regular income.

We just need to earn more and save more now that we already have a child to raise and nurture. As we are able to meet our goals, experience both financial freedom and stability, appreciate the convenience, achieve professional growth, and a lot more.

I never intend to say that this is better than the traditional way of working and earning for a living. What I just want to express is that we have personally proven that working and earning from home can be as good and as rewarding as office-based jobs.

Being a Tertiary English instructor, I am glad and proud to say that I have maintained my being on the top over the years. As I have consistently received such outstanding remark from the overall performance evaluation, I simply cannot leave teaching. It has been both my profession and passion for five years and I must admit that my heart is really into it. Indeed, I cannot say no to something that has been one of the greatest sources of my personal strength and inspiration.

Still, I teach every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Doing this truly cuts and breaks the monotony of staying at home 24/7. With all these blessings, I am indeed happy and fulfilled.

The Ideal Wife

It is never easy to be a wife. It is never an easy task as others may think it is. And I strongly believe that every wife just like me wants the husband to be happy not just every time they are together but for the entire marital relationship… for a lifetime.

Since I really love reading for several reasons most of the time, for personal and professional growth, I have read a write-up on what a man looks and expects his woman to be. Upon discernment, I have decided to share it to all the wives around the globe.

  • She ought to have a warm loving nature – delighted in sharing with him all reasonable pleasures.

  • She has to be in good health – be able to encourage him to also maintain a healthy body, mind and lifestyle.

  • She has to give him the freedom from possessiveness. Men say that the excessively possessive heart tends to be quite selfish, jealous and doubtful. Thus, it attributes deprivation from the joys, happiness and fulfillments of the lifetime commitment.

  • She has the interests in making a real home. Her power to make a house a home reigned by love, respect, trust and understanding.

  • She is a certified effective and efficient manager and budget officer.

  • She must never be a nagger. She may always share her thoughts and insights; yet, this must never be done in such a harsh, rough and tough manner. Remember that nagging irritates the husband.

  • She has a set of twins: understanding and kindness for peace and harmony in the home atmosphere.

  • She feeds his husband’s ego. Learn to appreciate and love his actions and words. Sometimes, it is never harmful to make him feel superior and special.

  • She possesses physical attractiveness, faithfulness and spiritual strength. They simply complete a woman’s image – strong yet vibrant, bubbly and sophisticated.

Yet, do not live to these points alone. Remember that you should still be the real you and you’ve got to be true to yourself, too. You should also consider doing things to make you happy and never do things for him alone or not just to satisfy him. You must always do things for both of you as well as your and your husband’s happiness.

And husbands, you’ve got to do your part, too.

Beautiful in my eyes…

During our wedding day, my hubby along with our common friends, wedding coordinators and organizers, planned to surprise me as I walked down the aisle. At the altar and at the reception, he sincerely sang his heart out through these meaningful songs with tears in his eyes. Here are the excerpts and the lines that seemed to be so touching and made hundreds of eyes cry two years ago.

As sure as I'm standing here…

As sure as I'm standing here
You'll never have to be afraid
As sure as I'm standing here
I'll try and help you find your way
Oh I swear, as sure as I'm standing here
You'll never need to be alone
You've got my word
As sure as I'm standing here
Oh I swear as sure as I'm standing here

Your song…

How wonderful life is now you're in the world
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you're in the world

Come what may…

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I've never seen the sky before
Want to vanish inside your kiss
Every day I love you more and more
Listen to my heart, can you hear it sings
Telling me to give you everything
Seasons may change, winter to spring
But I love you until the end of time

Come what may
Come what may
I will love you until my dying day

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesn't seem such a waste
It all revolves around you
And there's no mountain too high
No river too wide
Sing out this song and I'll be there by your side
Storm clouds may gather
And stars may collide
But I love you until the end of time

Oh, come what may, come what may
I will love you, I will love you
Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place

These simply made our wedding day more special and memorable not just to me but to all. Now, my turn…

Beautiful in my eyes…

You're my peace of mind in this crazy world.
You're everything I've tried to find, your love is a pearl.
You're my Mona Lisa, you're my rainbow skies,
and my only prayer is that you realize
you'll always be beautiful in my eyes.

The world will turn and the seasons will change,
and all the lessons we will learn will be beautiful and strange.
We'll have our fill of tears, our share of sighs.
And my only prayer is that you realize
you'll always be beautiful in my eyes.

You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
that you will always grow ever more beautiful in my eyes.

When there are lines upon my face from a lifetime of smiles,
and when the time comes to embrace for one long last while,
we can laugh about how time really flies.
We won't say goodbye 'cause true love never dies.
You'll always be beautiful in my eyes.

You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
that you will always grow ever more beautiful in my eyes.
The passing years will show that you will always grow
ever more beautiful in my eyes.

This song has a very meaningful and sincere message – so real that it can definitely make the listener cry and so much touched. Yet, there can never be more touching and romantic than having this song dedicated to my hubby, Rainier.

Now, as you will be celebrating your birthday on December 4, as we turn six years on December 14, and as we celebrate two years of marital friendship on December 16, I must say that you will always be beautiful in my eyes. You and Baby Eieo are two of the many wonderful blessings I have ever received from God. Thank you for being a responsible hubby and best friend to me, and most of all, a very loving father to our lil prince. I love you indeed.
