In Bittersweet Times Of Currency

6 Jun

During that financial hardship, our attentions and efforts turned inward to good family times that didn’t require currency. We went on walks together. We found parks in our area we had never visited before. We had picnics in the living room for lunch rather than going out to eat. These were our tangerine times: a bit sweeter and more nourishing.

Holding Hands

Trying times.

When you are single, you have less obligations to consider. When you are a couple, you have all the obligations to consider because his obligations become yours.

Receiving gifts of financial scarcity or trouble from the world comes as the most trying times, but how do we get ‘US‘ through?

From the actions of our children and the lessons of everyday, we realize that these bittersweet times are worth looking back to, for these are the times when we held each other the most.

Here’s a write-up of a parenting experience which reflected back to the best moments of couplehood: http://theologee.wordpress.com/2013/05/28/comparing-oranges-to-cookies/

Experience and learn love anew…everyday.


Bru’s First Love Letter: He Is Leaving His Family

5 Jun
Relax with a cup of coffee.

Forgive yourself.

Dear Amor Bruja,

I’m Gab and I am currently caught in a situation where I am not supposed to be. There’s a man I have learned to love for his kindness on me. For the past two years, he’s been my closest friend and now, he is leaving his family – his 10-year partner (they were never married) to be with me. I didn’t ask for it, but he said that he’s long been wanting to get out…even before I came into his life. It’s not about whether its right or wrong, but instead of feeling happy that he’s finally going to be with me, I feel devastated. Guilt eats me up. 



Dear Gab,

You are in a situation where love has brought you to be. Learning to love the person for his kindness is something that comes naturally. When you came into his life, his partnership with the mother of his kids was not giving him the happiness he thinks he deserves – and this may also be the reason why he chose to be kind to you.

Now, he has finally made up his mind to leave. Though there is no reason to celebrate, there is also no reason for you to be so hard on yourself, either. He just needs to make sure that his kids will have the support that they need from him, and this you need to accept and back-up with him wholeheartedly. Its true that it is going to be hard, but it won’t be for long. Everyone deserves their share of happiness.

Right here,
