A recent comment from Meri urged me to go back to my first post here. It was aptly entitled "We Were Not Ready To Say Goodbye..." That was James' story. That was the story that brought me here in the blogging world.
Almost 6 years after the tragedy, I still feel sad about it. But counting my blessings, I know I have so much to thank God for.. 6 years after, I am still standing. I am still alive. My kids have grown stronger and more responsible.
In fact, my son (the eldest among 3 kids) made it to the finals of a city-wide Physics Quiz Bee today. He didn't win but that was no mean feat to land in the final elimination round and be among the finalists of over 100 students. Oh, I forgot to tell you, he was informed about it (that he would represent his school) only yesterday, thereby giving him less than 24 hours to prepare.
Wow! I can only sit back and think to myself, "I must have done something right to deserve my kids."
