"Take an action each day that alleviates suffering in the world. Bring light into darkness."

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
--Mother Teresa

We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other

My poor babies

Well we just got over major illess in our house for 8 solid days. I have never had kids that sick. Poor little Meliah was the worst. It started out with a 102-103 fever thaat would not come down no matter how much medicine I gave her .Then the blisters appeared everywhere. In her mouth,in her throat,on her lips,on her chest.She could not eat any food for 8 days and was not able to take her bottle. I had to feed her liquids from a medicine dropper. That was all she consumed for 8 days. She was lethargic and laid on my shoulder 24 hours a day. She literally would not let me put her down for 8 days. She did not smile and did not play.It was terrible. Khai got it but nowhere as bad as his sister. He was still able to drink his bottle and consume some soft foods.It was not easy having two babies this sick.I spent many days sitting in the recliner with both babies laying on top of me. Thankfully they are now back to their old selves.
Meliah did officially wean herself from the bottle during her illness.I am not so happy about this but she won't have anything to do with it now.She looks at it like it is going to hurt her.

Oh no. Poor babies. I hope they're really on the mend and back to being busy toddlers soon!
