Hi, my name is Bee, the resident behind this blog. It is my online scrapbook on the adventures of the yesteryears, the joys that each new day brings and the glorious anticipation of what is to come.
Meet the Family. I love being married to my husband of 8 years. He is my best friend in the truest sense of the word. He makes me laugh and I often embarrass him with my not-so-funny jokes. He continues to inspire me to be forgiving, to be grateful, to not give up cooking even when I burned his food too many times. I refer to him as Guido from my favorite movie, “Life is Beautiful”. We have two wonderful children who are bumped into the #1 spot of our priority list. Together, we strive to make parenting and learning a lifestyle for us. I love the challenges and the rewards of being a stay-at-home working mom. My family is to me a reflection of God’s love — amazing, pure, unconditional.
A Few Facts About Bee. I was born and raised in the Philippines. I was a classroom teacher and an overseas missionary for several years prior to settling down in 2008. As mentioned, I am a SAHM and at the same time I have an online business that keeps me busy whenever I am not too occupied with homeschool and house chores. Life is not perfect and the little mishaps in my homemaking sprinkle our home with spice, sometimes too much spice. Yikes! I love to explore different areas of creativity and enjoy learning new things everyday.
Blogging Goals. I do not consider myself a writer. And yet, why do I blog? Here are ten good reasons that convinced me to start a blog. I love to journal and see it as an opportunity to express thoughts, tell stories and share ideas. Laugh with me, cringe with me. Welcome to my “soaring, tumbling, free-wheeling” kind of writing! 😀
Inspired To Be. Inspiration —that’s what keeps me going. I am excited to be able to share with you a bit of what I do as a mom, as a wife, and as a student of life. I realize that the blessings I have come to appreciate the most were inspired by the people around me or by the opportunities that were afforded to me. Homemade Joys, it’s all those jumbled, inspiring moments life puts me in.
My wish is that you or someone who visits today may learn something from my experiences and draw inspiration from my journey. We can all be inspired to be the best that we can be! I believe that everyday is a gift and every bit of blessing is freely given by God. He gives the greatest gifts — and He gives them in His perfect timing!
May God’s choicest blessings be yours,
Homemade Joys is lovingly dedicated to my beautiful children who inspire me everyday and whose little funny adventures I am blessed to witness. May they live each day knowing that I love them and every moment I got to spend with them is a cherished memory. And to my husband whose love I am honored to hold so dear all these years. <3 #familyislove #Godisgood
