As I sang, tears fell from my eyes because Tim was not there with me. My brother had gone and Zoey looked so much like him and he was also my sunshine. Then the phone rang to my room and it was Tim. His first words to me were, “I love you.” My voice cracked as I uttered, “Then why aren’t you here?” Although I knew the answer, my heart was broken. I couldn’t believe I said those words because my heart screamed, I miss you and I love you too. But my mouth betrayed me and expressed words that I didn’t mean to say.
Bringing a sick child to the ED can be stressful, especially this winter with hospitals nationwide reporting record-breaking admissions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report there have been 30 flu-associated fatalities in children since January 13 of this year.

When I was a teenager, I felt that I would end up meeting this godly, virtuous, beautiful, intelligent, poetic, classy, and funny girl. She would be strong with a little attitude, have an affinity for hip-hop and R&B, and most of all, love God. I was young but my thoughts were old. I wasn't rushing the day to come but I felt in my soul that it eventually would. One day it actually did and I knew it that very same day.
You’re going to want to make sure that you have a comfortable pregnancy. And if you want to have a good year too, that means you have to make some adaptations to your daily life. But I'm not just talking about getting your husband to do the dishes because that’s not going to take a load off of the biggest chunk of your day - work. So here’s how you can adapt your life at work to make your pregnancy more comfortable.
We never truly are in control of our own lives. We need money, which means we have to work, which means we spend our whole lives working to see most of it thrown away to living. When you think of it like that, it is a pretty daunting thought. But, there are ways you can take control of certain aspects of your own life. All you have to do is have the willpower to do so. Because even though there are certain aspects, such as work, that we can’t control, the ones we can control we often can’t be bothered to do so.
One of the biggest challenges in motherhood is the lack of sleep. Exhaustion is no joke, but from the third trimester onward, exhausted is exactly what you are. There are many books that you can read to tell you how to make your baby sleep through the night, but all the literature and all the articles in the world have no impact on the baby – they haven’t read them!
As I heard the door lock one tear fell from my eye. My grandma walked over to me and said, “Now, your Mom is sad that you did say goodbye.” I ran to the door and I caught her before she left the porch and screamed, “I love you mommy and I’m still mad!” She turned and smiled as she blew me a kiss and mouthed, I love you too.
This was I really really really tried my hardest to listen to Tonja, but she gets on my nerves. She always takes my doll without asking and she doesn't let me play with her dolls. She even told my mom that I took a candy cane off the tree even though she did to. I will try harder next year. School is fun my new teacher Mrs. Matthews allows me to help in class, I love to be a helper. I also won first place in the science fair for my volcano. I hope you like the cookies we made, I made the one with the red and white snowflakes. P.S. Santa: I know I haven't asked you for anything in years, but this year I would love a Subaru Forester. I so love this vehicle and it is perfect for my family. I promise to drive with care.
