This is our message.
This is who we are.
This is what we stand for.
This is our brand. .
As I was swallowing my rice noodle soup, my throat is filled with a certain lump. The lump kept building up.
Felt like I'd choke & I couldn't swallow anymore.
But I kept pushing the food down, then sipping the juice, and continue to sip the juice.
I find drinking helps drown that feeling, and stop those tears at the edge of my eyelids from spilling.
A mixed emotions of grief & envious & loss & love.
I kept on sniffing, hoping that'll stop the tears from falling.
I didn't know it affects me so much. But the heaviness in my heart keeps growing.
His plan is great. I have no doubt.
Perhaps I'm being too sensitive. Somehow I feel it in every fibre of my being.
It makes me wonder of my ending. Whether I'm doing enough. What have I done, & what could I do to deserve such beautiful conclusion, in such a perfect location, on such a perfect day.
To have great men & women flew all the way to pray for you & show their last respects.
Sorrow, yes. To lose beautiful souls whom I never knew of. Truly empathising with those they left behind.
Sad, to witness such determination in another human to kill his own brothers and sisters. What drove him to such strong will, I wonder?
Joyful yes too. To see everyone coming together. To watch love, hope & kindness manifesting greater.
And regardless of faith, we do come from the same Source. And the message is PEACE.

Giggles, belly buttons and desert sun... The makings of a true, judgement free, friendship. 😊💜
What would I give to find a new friend whose just like me?! Someone who has the same schedule as me, same habits, same parenting style, same boundaries. Making friends is not as easy as it once was and I think it's totally because we're looking for people who are Just.Like.Us. I'll enjoy the sweetness of my daughters young friendships while I sit here waiting for my CO twin. 😂
Any other reasons you think it's harder making true friendships as an adult? Better yet, as a mom of young babes? 💕
