"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief... and unspeakable love.” - Washington Irving

A Love that is Lola

This afternoon we got a wonderful surprise in the form of our Lola Talula. Our baby girl is back. We have been terribly missing her for days. We held off not getting her from Jhon's family for a bit... we were not sure if we were already capable of taking care of her. We did not want her neglected.

Our day started roughly. Jhon and I had lunch talking about our little Angel Marcus. We were sharing our thoughts on how we pictured our daily life when Marcus arrived. How we planned and envisioned our lives around him. It is still hard to accept that we won't be able to experience that life with our baby boy. Our early afternoon was filled with tears and despair.

But the mood of our home changed when Lola arrived. As soon as she entered the front door Jhon was immediately greeted by her classic excited spinning. She ran towards me as I instantly carried her into my arms. We felt her love right away. She is very responsive towards us and we are showered with her quiet affectionate ways... for she feels what we are going through. She is just startling like that. It's good to have her back. Our home is a bit brighter now that our Lola is back.

Thank you to Tita Zenny, Regina, Ferdi, Suki, and Bianca for taking care of her. It gave us peace of mind that she, the whole time, was in good hands because they were there for her.
