Parabens, Patricia!!!!

A vida nao eh feita de grandes sacrificios e obrigacoes, mas de pequenas coisas: entre as quais os sorrisos e a gentileza que damos habitualmente sao o que ganha e preserva o curacao e assegura o conforto. (Sir Humphrey Davy)
Querida Patricia,

Love is in the air... It's Saint Valentine Day!

Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day, is a holiday observed on February 14 honoring one or more early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (I like this last one!!;)).
The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. It was first established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD, and was later deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI. Source: Wikipedia

Love is in the air! It is all around and it is in your heart! You may have said the three magical words 'I Love You' a thousand times before, right? Well it’s time for once more!

He or she’s your sweetheart. He or she’s the man or woman of your dreams. Why not tell him/her what he/she means to you?
Have a great day, guys!

Biba a Bipa Nani!!!

Por causa de um amigo, a vida eh um pouco mais pujante, mais cheia, mais generosa para a nossa existencia, quer ele se encontre perto ou longe. Se estiver perto, tanto melhor; mas, estando longe, mesmo assim esta ali; pudemos pensar nele, preocuparmo-nos com ele, ter noticias dele, escrever-lhe, partilhar a vida e as experiencias com ele; honra-lo, admira-lo e ama-lo."
Arthur Christopher Burson
Parabens Espinafra!!!!

2012 it's already here!

When the clock strikes twelve on December 31st, individuals all over the world cheer and wish each other a very Happy New Year.
For some, this event is no more than a change of a calendar; for others, the New Year indicates the creation of a improved tomorrow.
So, if you look forward to a good year ahead, fill it with all the good things everybody deserves - Happiness now and always!
Resolutions are more sustainable when shared, both in terms of with whom you share the benefits of your resolution, and with whom you share the path of maintaining your resolution. Peer-support makes a difference in success rate with new year's resolutions".
Frank Ra, author of the new year's resolution book 

 IF you have done any resolutions, please keep it simple and achievable!
Let’s ring the New Year with good things in mind!
Happy New Year!

25th December it’s not Christmas Day everywhere…

Living in a country where outside we cannot show or celebrate Christmas, and my husband just left the house to go to work, was thinking about how we invisible can influence our kids. So decided to think a little bit about it and explore this topic, and at same time share with you something that warmed my heart this morning – My son’s Christmas cards for us!

(The duckling is born floating... Filho de peixe sabe nadar... ;)))
Do you know that the first 4 years impact a child's entire life? A child can comprehend some words by the age of one and 40% of the adult intelligence develops in the first 4 years. Pretty fascinating!!! So that’s the best period to develop a child's physical abilities, intellect, language, imagination and creativity.
As contrary to what we think, a kid hears and understands the most in his formative years and not in later years. That's why it’s imperative that parents should provide their child the best possible and stimulating and motivating atmosphere.
Let your child run around and explore with didactic tools and toys. This is where the role of a pre-school assumes importance. It is very important that what kind of peer group your kid is interacting with at the school because this group forms the learning ground for them about right behaviour, performance, routine, friendship, sharing etc., Your kid can be a "Einstein" in making if he is nurtured in the right environment and, of course with lots of love!

Do us parents give the most to our childs?
Parents do have a significant and vital role to play in a child's formative years!! It’s a disappointment to say that in this techno century we just forget that.

How can we play our roles efficiently?
Give them freedom to move, to think, to express, to explore and let your kid see the world through their eyes and not yours. Give your kids opportunities to show their creativity with colours or dance steps or to interact and relate with the peer group and perform in front of people.
And... as a reminder am sure you know, the most important is to give them love. Appreciate and motivate your child so that he can take on life with confident and optimism and cheerfulness!

Have a great Christmas day!!!!
I will spend it all with my son, and later on with my other love - my husband!

Merry Christmas, Guys!!!!!

What do you want from Christmas?

Many people do hope for more than presents at Christmas...
(ex for a xmas wrapping)
 (door hangers)
 We want to somehow return to a time in our childhood (or some other good time in the past), when life was simpler and made more sense, before the troubles of adult life arrived.
Am pretty sure that behind all the fun and decorations, there is a message... something more, some key to life, hope and happiness.
So can we look beyond the way Christmas is celebrated today, and find any real meaning, any message for our lives today?
Christmas is the time to rejoice in the glories of Christ's birth and celebrate all the blessings of the Holy Spirit with your friends, family, acquaintances and loved ones.

Christmas is the jolliest time of the year!!!!
Celebrate the joys of this wonderful time and have fun with your friends, family and loved ones. Send them your wishes in the old yule way - a christmas card!
Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
