Honoring the Head of the Family, who is both Provider and Father

On Father’s Day, we take time to honor our fathers who serve as head of the family and provider.

Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all.

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives.

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us.

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs.

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair every day? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

According to the hair loss statistics conducted by Statistic Brain in the year 2016, 40 percent of men experience noticeable mane vanishing as early as age 35. And as per the American Hair Loss Association, there are a couple of different factors that cause excessive hair fall, one being extreme degree of stress.

Nutramedica Inc. introduced a revolutionary product that aims to address this problem: NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss. Being the only topical scalp lotion in the country that is made from 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients all working synergistically, it’s perfect for all the heads of the family out there, be they biological or not.

Nothing Less than the Gift of Healthy ‘Crowning Glory’ Fit for the Queen on Mother’s Day

Of course, we think of no one else but primarily of her as Mother’s day comes around.

Cliche it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanayinay‘naymama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.

No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Still drooling over the ways on how to spend this time of the year again with her? Well, you may opt for the basics of gift-giving from simple trinkets to expensive items. But take note, your appreciation of her is not equated by the tag price of your present. It’s the thought that counts, as an adage says.

You may consider a set of hankies that will bring back the memory of her wiping out her tears of happiness upon knowing that she’s conceiving a li’l creature inside her womb. That’s you, of course. A loose yet comfy clothes shall make her remember that sort of a duster or preggy dress she wore in the laborious yet exciting “nine months” of gestation.

Why not a pillow that she could hug as tight as she embraced you after giving birth, or maybe a brassiere for protection of the very bosom she fed you with during infancy? A bed will bring to her mind your tot years when you started to crawl and roll over it freely.

Shoes are a girl’s best friend, too, like your mom. Either sky-high heels or flattering flats, there’s a pair to match every bit of her fantasy. For as long as it brings comfort to her feet, it’s more than enough to reciprocate the ease you had when you took your first walk with her guidance back then. If it isn’t her thing, though, a flip-flop will cause her to think that she also disciplined you through the proverbial “rule of slipper” hit on your buttocks while you were growing up.

Much to her delight, a bling ring will be worthy of your dear investment to show your deep appreciation of her just like when she never failed to recognize you with a pat on the back for simple good deeds or a job well done in your lifetime.

Stuck for an idea yet? Here’s a simple but meaningful token of gratitude that for sure will make a big difference and, eventually, pull off a surprise for the celebrant herself: The NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack which includes the topical scalp lotion, herbal shampoo and conditioner. Yes, you read it right.

Still not convinced enough, why don’t you spray a liberal amount of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion onto your mom’s scalp and massage it for five to ten minutes. You may not even know that with such a plain gesture of yours, it can melt her heart as it reminds her of the past when she used to do the same thing while you were still young, either as a trick to put you easily on a slumber or merely a relief every time you got sick. Those caressing hands of yours, likewise, imbibe your act of giving back the “natural care from mothers” like her.

Whatever impression it may have on her, what’s tangible she could gain is that you’re giving her nature’s gift of health. NOVUHAIR Topical Scalp Lotion is so unique that it combines 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients––all working synergistically to help address hair problems from growth to vanishing. This breakthrough product helps to rejuvenate, nourish and maintain the moist of her tress from root to tip, aids in stimulating the growth of her hair and helps prevent it from excessive falling, while improving the overall appearance.

More than anything else, NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack may be one of the most precious gifts that your mom could ever receive in her entire life. Well, she’s the most important woman in your life after all. Hence, she deserves to be treated like a queen with that vibrant, bouncy and shiny “crowning glory.”

NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack is beyond compare. So, don’t think twice to wrap it as your present for her this Mother’s Day and, if ever, for life.

Celebrating Our 7th Wedding Anniversary in NZ

It was not really planned. And yet my husband and I ended up celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary in the land where they say there are more sheep than people: New Zealand 🙂

We checked out the following places and more during that one fine day in November (our 7th wedding anniversary also falls on the 7th day of November).

Pegasus Town. Together with my cousin Jaireh, his wife and kid, the hubby and I went to Pegasus Town in North Canterbury (we were coming from Christchurch). We had our lunch at the Pegasus Golf and Sports Club and took time to stroll around the area.

Hanmer Springs. Next stop after Pegasus was Hanmer Springs. With the temperature at 5 degrees (Centigrade), one doesn’t really think of swimming. But as we were in a new place, Jaireh managed to convince us that we should go for a dip at Hanmer Springs, specifically into its thermal pools. Hanmer is also located in the Canterbury region. Yes, it was really cold as we put on our swimwear and walked to one of its pools (the pools have different temperatures, think hot to hottest) but as soon as we got into it, it was really relaxing 🙂 Below is one of the pools we chose to swim in:

Experiencing Nature. New Zealand is such a scenic country and it is easy to find so many postcard-perfect spots or should I say, instagram-worthy ones. And so before we headed back to Christchurch, we stopped several times to take photos 🙂 And I was so thankful that I finally got to see cherry blossoms 🙂  We also had to take photos with the sheep and deer which you could see just dotting the green landscape as we drove by.

Kiwi and Chinese food. Of course, the day won’t be complete without food 🙂  As mentioned, we ate lunch at Pegasus Town. We also had a light snack at Hanmer Springs. We capped the day with a dinner at a Chinese eating place: Dragon Restaurant. (You can also check out some of the Kiwi/New Zealand food we enjoyed in NZ here.)

What a beautiful day we had! We are truly thankful to God, to Jaireh and to his “fam bam” and to our friends and family who have helped make the trip to NZ a beautiful reality 🙂  Thank God from whom all blessings flow 🙂

Note: Daryl and I were a part of a group of pastors and leaders from our church who were invited for a leaders’ training in Hamilton, New Zealand. We stayed on for a few more days after the training to see friends and family in NZ.
