Mommy Writes

Mommy’s turn! The first time I encountered “it” was when Danae was around 2 years old. She wasn’t in any pain. She was actually just singing her heart out in the shower. I immediately called my aunt, who is a pediatrician, and she confirmed my fears. “It” was a hernia. I instantaneously cried over theContinue reading “Mommy Writes”

God of Miracles

Last August, after King’s ordeal with his slipped disc, I got to talk to Danae about MIRACLES.

I called itContinue reading “God of Miracles”

After breakfast, he bent down to plug in the electric fan inContinue reading “SMALL FAVORS & TINY MIRACLES”

WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK

MY PALAWAN BIRTHDAY

We were scheduled to fly to Busuanga on July 6. A few days before, I was perfectly healthy. Then I started sniffling on Monday, July 5. What a time to get sick! My mom and King were waiting on me to decide whether we should push through or not, seeing that I had not packedContinue reading “MY PALAWAN BIRTHDAY”
