Everytime you wash the dishes

Everytime you read to our children

Everytime you clean the loo

I see you speaking my love language –

I know you are the man for me


Thank you Rosema and Marie 😉

Rosema Writes:

“Much like the colors of the skies, every language is beautiful in its own way—the way they sound and how each word fits perfectly in a poem, a story, or a musical piece. And sometimes we find ourselves wishing how delightful it would be if we could learn those languages by heart and use them in our craft.

That is why Maria of Doodles and Scribbles and Rosema of A Reading Writer have invited you to join their July blog event, Word-High July. They have teamed up to give you a whole month worth of prompts and since we are both #ProudlyPinay, these 30 beautiful Filipino words below will serve as the prompt for each day of the month.

…and the rules…

“Here are the five easy steps to join Word-High July:

  1. Write or create a post inspired or about the Filipino word prompts.
  2. A post can be anything. A poem, a fiction, a six-word tale, or even a photo. It’s all up to you.
  3. Linkback/create a pingback to this post. Here is a quick tutorial on how to do it.
  4. Tag your post with WordHighJuly, so your co-bloggers will be able to read/see your take on the prompt. Here’s how you create tags.
  5. Most important of all, read and comment to your blogger friends (old and new found, we’ll never know).😉

Come join Maria and Rosema in appreciating the beauty of the Filipino language.

Let the #WordHighJuly commence! ✌️

    1. Thank you so much! I wish I could tell you it’s my own brilliant alliteration, but there is a series of books on the 5 Love Languages. If you search my site, I think I wrote a post on it earlier this year. In the book, revealed in the tests, you can find how you receive/perceive love. For me, I feel loved when my people help me with tasks that are usually mine. While I love reading to my children, and don’t mind doing dishes, cleaning bathrooms is my least favorite — and my husband has been happily doing it for me since we were married many years ago. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      1. That’s brilliant, and certainly the essence of a successful relationship. My girlfriend and I have learnt we receive/precieve love in different ways, I’m more vocal (Soppy, I think is the word haha) and she prefers, like you, to see tasks completed… So I’m learning to “act” more, and she’s learning to “speak” more, and it’s helping no end 🙂

      2. Sounds like my husband and I! Wanting to be responsive, and keeping that desire to love and keep open lines of communication, can go a long way 🙂
