Iyah’s 7th Birthday 


Last July 6th,my niece celebrated her 7th birthday. It was a Wednesday and, fortunately, it was a holiday so we were able to give her a party and invited her friends to celebrate it with her. 

She’s very happy and we’re happy for her, too. I think what it made more special, though, was that she finally met her half-sister for the first time. 🙂

And here’s a video that my boyfriend made, a compilation of Iyah’s photos since she was a baby. 🙂

But there’s a hole

That seems to drain it all away

And once again I’m left in fear and doubt

When all my strength is crying out


So here I am again

Willing to be opened up and broken like a flower in the rain

Tell me what have I to do  Continue reading

Reading Update June 2016


For the month of June, I was able to read these four novels;

1. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – you may read my thoughts about this book here
