Your sister is the first female friend you will have in your life. Nobody will ever be able to understand your craziness like your sister. And although you don’t see each other as much as you would like, she will always remain your friend and be there for you whenever you need her the most. While people will come and go in your life, your sister will be in your heart for a lifetime.
I found this quote from someone on Facebook. I shared it on my profile and sharing it here as well. Yes, our sisters are our best friends. So love your sisters like you love your parents.
I miss my siblings, I love them so much.
My little sister is now renting a boarding house together with her four classmates. The reason for renting a boarding house is that, the hospital duty is by shift and my little sister is having a difficulty going home especially if she’s off at midnight. There is no transportation available. And with the power still out, it’s not safe. So we talked about the boarding house rental and she also let our parents know about the plan. My parents agreed and now she’s in convenience.
As you know, my little sister is in her senior year in college taking up nursing course. It is very tedious but she does good in examinations and trainings. After the typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), they have been doing make up classes and they even go to school on Sundays. My dear husband said they will get burned out! I hope not. I understand how the school has to catch up with classes and stuff. And they will be graduating, she said, in April this year.
I am praying that all will go well as far as her studies are concerned. My sister is very determined and focused. We talked about the future plans after graduation and hopefully the good grades will be maintained. We are so proud of her. Diligence and patience will earn great rewards.
As a first time mom, sometimes I am overwhelmed with the things going on around the house especially with the chores and all. I can’t catch up most of the time. And it makes me feel irritable and crabby. I want everything to be done in one day! But how can I do that? I am not a superwoman. My husband said I have to take it easy. One step at a time and I’ll get things done. I know he wants to help me and wants me to be stress-free. But I can’t help thinking about so many things.
There are times I feel down and blue. No cheer or motivation at all. When it happens, my little one is affected. Then I feel guilty at times. Am I depressed? Here’s what I found about signs and symptoms of depression in women.
The symptoms of depression in women are the same as those for major depression. Common complaints include:
- Depressed mood
- Loss of interest or pleasure in activities you used to enjoy
- Feelings of guilt, hopelessness and worthlessness
- Suicidal thoughts or recurrent thoughts of death
- Sleep disturbance (sleeping more or sleeping less)
- Appetite and weight changes
- Difficulty concentrating
- Lack of energy and fatigue
Honestly I tell you that motherhood and parenting can be exhausting and depressing. But if you allow the reasons to overcome you, definitely depression will get into you. Me? I just hope and pray that I will be able to handle what is going one right now in my life. So much stress!!! Help me God!
