A bird perched outside our window sill sings its lovely morning song. The light winter breeze rustles some leaves and creates a swishing sound. Everything feels as it should with no indication something could go wrong. But, the day was deceiving, and we couldn’t foresee the news that came around. The doctors said you triedContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Blue Morning”
I hold my breath and close my eyes hoping the pain will come and go. I try to go on as if it was just another day. There is no denying that the sunset has left and the sunrise has followed. It is another day, but it’s another day without you here. When I readContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Monday Blues”
Four years have come and gone. 1,460 days have arrived and passed. Time wasted no time to stand still. The world just kept turning round. For 35,040 hours, I’ve missed you. For 2,102,400 minutes, my heart has ached. I know you’re in a better place. I know your pain is no more. But I wish I couldContinue reading “Missing Grandma”
I could see your bright smile long before I ever saw your face. I could hear your cries and sobs because you needed a diaper change. I could feel your warm hugs when you needed my comforting embrace.

It’s that time again when smoke from hot grills surround us. The smell of barbecue fills the air and lit up multi-colored fireworks can be seen in the sky. Today is the Fourth of July! Today, the US flag is held up high, as we remember our nation’s history, and how today marks our independence day. It’s a day where weContinue reading “Fourth of July Memories”
They say time heals all wounds. I believe it isn’t just time that deserves all the credit. Healing is also found in our hopes and faith where we can bear the unbearable.
As I attempt to organize and free up space on my laptop, I stumbled upon this. I wrote it right after my grandfather’s passing, and the words ring true right now more than ever. This month is the 8th anniversary of my grandfather’s death, and in a few days, it will be two-months since myContinue reading “Death.”
When life gets blue and the sun is nowhere to be found. Sit on a bench and let your thoughts run loose. Somewhere amongst the shades and slight breeze, you’ll find a way to smile through your grief. It might take more than a moment, maybe even years. But I know you can get there, evenContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Life”
