Singing her heart out!

I am getting the cute little girl a digital recorder. She loves singing her heart out and recording it! She likes listening to her voice again and again. She gets a kick out of it and it’s too cute and funny. So while I was talking to my two sisters about it, I decided to […]

My Prayer

My prayer is always this… that I can continue to provide for the family. That work and blessings will continue pouring in thereby increasing my income. That no one in the family will get sick or get into accident or trouble. That all of us will die a natural death and without any pain at […]

Valid worries

I always worry about my brother. I worry that he might get into trouble. Or trouble finds him. He’s the type of guy who welcomes anything, trouble or otherwise. Somehow, along the way, I messed up raising him. I spoiled him too much. My mom and I. But my mom’s not here anymore so it’s […]
