Weekly Photo Challenge: ABUNDANCE

This week’s theme is “Abundance.”

Our son has SO MANY toys. We make sure he has PLENTY of reasons to smile and be happy. We may not have lots of money but we make sure that we SHOWER him with all the love he needs.


No One Else Comes Close

Inigo and I recorded this song “No one else comes close” for Mommy as our Valentine’s Day gift.

So if you are not Mommy and you don’t like the video, then I wouldn’t care much.

But if you like it, even just the thought of it… then thank you 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I wish for love to everybody’s hearts. Here it goes…


An Hour of Your Time

A man came home from work late again, tired and irritated, to find his 5 year old son waiting for him at the door.

“Daddy, may I ask you a question?”

“Yeah, sure, what is it?” replied the man.

“Daddy, how much money do you make an hour?

“That’s none of your business! What makes you ask such a thing?” the man said angrily.

“I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?” pleaded the little boy.

“If you must know, I make $20.00 an hour.”

“Oh,” the little boy replied, head bowed. Looking up, he said, “Daddy, may I borrow $10.00 please?”

The father was furious. “If the only reason you wanted to know how much money I make is just so you can borrow some to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you’re being so selfish. I work long, hard hours everyday and don’t have time for such childish games.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even madder about the little boy’s questioning. How dare him ask such questions only to get some money.

After an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think he may have been a little hard on his son. Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $10.00, and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door. “Are you asleep son?” he asked.

“No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy.

“I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier,” said the man. “It’s been a long day and I took my aggravation out on you. Here’s that $10.00 you asked for.”

The little boy sat straight up, beaming. “Oh, thank you daddy!” he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow, he pulled out some more crumpled up bills. The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at the man.

“Why did you want more money if you already had some?” the father grumbled.

“Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied.

“Daddy, I have $20.00 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?”

Running the Race

My Fathers Day inspirational story feature. Credits to fancyboyproductions. I hate to say it, but this video made my eyes teary.

 Happy fathers day to all the dads out there!

In one of the most memorable races in Olympic history, Derek Redmond of Great Britain finishes his 400m Semi-Final crying on the shoulder of his father. He tore his hamstring during the race and fell on the ground in pain.

But he was determined to finish his race. He got up and continued running on the tracks while limping. He was badly injured, so his father pushed through the crowds to come and help him. They finished the race together with over 65,000 people clapping on standing ovation.

Derek was last in the race, but first in the hearts of many. That was 1992, and nobody remembers now who won the gold during that race. But Derek Redmond’s name and his father will be remembered forever for this inspiring triumph.


In Pajamas!



Inigo gets a new look!

kalbsIt was bothering me during the last few days how Inigo looked. His curly hair is getting longer and he looked more like a baby girl than a boy. But it was difficult to find in this place a barber who would cut an awake baby’s hair.

So I decided to cut my own baby’s hair! Mommy played with Inigo while I shaved his head… and presto! Inigo’s new look!  Glad I didn’t cut his ears!IMG_2714kalbs2


Children of Substance


Check this picture out! I’m sure you all know that it’s Inigo on the last frame. But can you guess who are on the first two pics? That’s me and my wife! You can see from our son the traits that he got from us. Life is such a miracle!


Inigo with Daddy

Some bonding moments with Inigo. Mommy is behind the camera.


Happy 1st Birthday, Inigo!


DSC_8528DSC_8529Inigo turned one year old! How time flies!

I just want to extend my sincerest gratitude to my friends who helped me organize my son’s birthday party last 19th. I couldn’t have done it without you guys.

Check out pictures from the birthday party in INIGO’s BLOG and INIGO’s FRIENDSTER ACCOUNT.

No one person can ever experience all that life has to offer. It is only through sharing - experiences, feelings, insights - that we can hope to grow beyond our own meager lifetime.

Nurses are tough people. But behind great nurses are inspirations to keep them doing what they need to do - TO CARE.

Nurse or non-nurse, please feel free to move around the site. Everybody needs inspirations to be encouraged every now and then.
