Because I am so scared

Like the usual, the family spent the Easter Sunday at the beach.  It is very common here in the country to go to the beach during this time.  This is the way people celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the redeemer of the world.  We have been doing this kind of celebration for years now and we love it.  We decided to go to the beach because the kids love to go to the beach and swim.  We were having fun, when we heard people are running and shouting.  Because we are curious, the brother went to see what was going on, then on the brother learned that a child was drowned and dead.  After few minutes, we saw the father carrying his son to bring it to the hospital.  But seeing the look of the child, we thought it was already dead.

The father of the child is being so careless.  He just let his six years old son swimming in the water while he is having fun drinking.  If only he go swimming with his son, the incident would have not happened.  I guess, he neglected to check his son because he is having fun.  I felt sorry for the child.  After the incident, I decided to not go to the beach anymore because I am so scared to the nephews and nieces.  I am being so negative thinker, but I think it is best to be safe than sorry.  Last year, it was also Easter Sunday when I saw a child drowning for the first time.  Last Sunday was my second.  I am afraid that the third time it would be someone I know.  Thinking about it scares me to death.   So I think it is best to spend the Easter Sunday at home, at the park or at the mall.

Thanks for inviting us

One of the most important day of our life is our birthday.  It is the first day we were born and the day of our life here in the world after leaving inside the womb of our dear mother.  Because it is important we do celebrates our birthday every year.  We celebrates because we want to tell the world how blessed we are each year.  May it be a simple celebration, the important is that we are able to give thanks to the Lord who gave us the gift of life.  As for myself, I never forgets to go to the church every birthdays.

I am saying this because today we are invited by a friend who is celebrating her 60th birthday.  60 years of blessed and abundant life.  She is so great for she reach this age.  She wanted to give thanks and share the  blessings she had received in life.  What is nice about her is that she chooses to celebrate it with her friends and co-workers at the beach.  How thoughtful of her of doing it.  And since she is a friend, we are invited.  Because the celebration is at the beach, the kids loves it.  We woke up early this morning, go to church before going to the beach.  It was one wonderful Sunday for the family especially for me because I am able to unwind and relax.  It is really great to spend time at the beach. Thanks for inviting us over.
