What special or unusual purchases did I make?
- Been wanting to check out the sales this month but thankfully I was able to resist. No shopping this month and hopefully until the next few years (?)

What have you learned this month?
- Don't compare everyone's highlights to your everydays. That's what I learned this month. In social media sites, of course people would upload their highlights. So don't compare your struggles to these things

- Father Coching's talk emphasize that we have to be BRAVE. B-lessed, R-enewed, A-ctive, V-igilant, E-mpowered

- In PFO talks, I've learned that we should invest a lot of time with our kids starting NOW. Do not wait until they grow up. The time is NOW. Make sure that you spend quality time with the family. Spend time deliberately and not just being there (while checking your phone), but talk to them and look them in their eyes.

- I'm thankful for this month. I may have a few challenges, I felt a little sad some days, but I know I'm not ALONE. I'm with GOD.
