what God gives, He takes.


the boy celebrated his 11th birthday on friday (actual date today). i know for sure he likes nothing better than to have his clique to share with. this group grew up together in the same neighbourhood, attends the same church & goes to the same school. presumably they'll be BFFs in due time.

coincidentally, the obstetricians listed 4 patients for C-section today. my thoughts went to the boy because these babies will share the same birthday with him. although all four were successfully delivered, one inexplicably suffered a respiratory problem soon after birth & eventually succumbed. imagine - one moment the kid was crying the lungs out & then suddenly, the breathing stopped. one moment, there was life & the next, there was none.

it did put a damper on my day but some things are just beyond human comprehension.

to the 3 lovely babies borned today, I wish you well & pray you'd grow up to be useful citizens & make your parents proud.

to the 4th, may your soul rest in peace for you are in a better place now. amen.

Happy belated birthday to the boy. I know this is VERY VERY late. But I know I do have a good excuse for it..just that I have not thought of one yet. LOL

Hope he is enjoying the last week of the holidays. Being in a Chinese medium school, I bet he has tons of holiday homework to keep him occupied.

Andrea,

thanks.

homework? what homework? he's finished all that at the beginning of the holidays & truly on vacation after that.
