December is a month to look back, to reminisce and to once again feel thankful for everything that surrounds me. 2014 has been a year filled with many new experiences, exciting adventures and blessings for my family and for that, I am eternally grateful.
In this month's "Happiness is...", I take a look at all the good around me and remind myself that it is not happy people who are thankful, but thankful people who are happy.
e many family-friendly attractions. Even when night falls, the fun doesn't stop and there are still many places we can visit and things we can do. Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay was one of them and we were definitely blown away by the charm of the vibrant lights.
When Angel goes for class, I also get to spend some one on one time with the little one. This 20cents ball game is one of our favourite activities and I am always amazed by how she is one blessed lucky star and manages to win more tickets than me every time!
We also had an awesome time at Universal Studios, thanks to the Navy Family Day initiative. For the first (and probably last) time ever, the park was open till 1am especially for us and the kids had so much fun on the rides at past midnight and we absolutely enjoyed dancing the night away. Woohoo!
Christmas, to us, is a time to get together with family and friends and celebrate all the love that we have. I am thankful for the times we get to be together as mother and daughters in the afternoons and simple things like doing art and craft, decorating the tree or shopping for gifts can be so much fun and are moments that bond us closer.
I am thankful for friends who bring about so much joy and laughter and I'm glad to see that my big girl is slowly learning to make friends and be a good friend in return too. We spent a rainy day in Legoland after being stuck in the jam for over five hours but I would still say it was a worthwhile experience and a fun day out with our neighbours-cum-friends.
To have these two little animal lovers who are brave enough to try out new experiences, becoming Friends of the Zoo is probably one of the best decisions ever. Look, we fed giraffes for the first time on Ariel's birthday!
And yes, this little bundle of joy turned two this month and she still never fails to surprise me and make me laugh every single day. I am just so very, very thankful that I am a mum of two lovely girls and that she is such a precious little sister, daughter and gem.
To the Santa who is always willing to be laughed at and tries his very best to bring joy to the kids, I am blessed to have you. Thank you for making Christmas so much more fun!
As 2014 draws to an end, what are the things that you feel grateful for?
P.S. Woohoo, we are back from the holidays! I sure hope all of you had a fantastic New Year celebration and may the year 2015 be filled with endless joy and good health for everyone!
