What makes me extra sad is that December 4 is his 3rd birthday. The doctor said we couldn't go home until Sunday (I think just to make sure that all the antibiotics are really administered for at least 5 days). I guess we just have to postpone his big day and just make sure that he gets well really soon. I told hubby to let our daughter Nat come to the hospital to see Phil so that we can still celebrate in a simple way (told hubby maybe we could buy a small cake just for the family, you know, just so Phil can blow his candles), plus I haven't seen Nat since Wednesday afternoon.
So what have I missed? I missed AAM's Challenge 7 debut! Better late than never, right? The title of the challenge is Processing the Holidays. This is the one thing that always come to mind whenever the holidays are fast approaching - - sharing with the less fortunate - - so this is the inspiration behind my take on the challenge:
Meet Jiro, a 4 year old Dumagat native living along the banks of Ipo Dam. He sold me fish which he and his brother caught 2 days before Ondoy hit the country. I sometimes wonder how he’s doing and pray that he and his family survived Ondoy unharmed.
Now that the holidays are fast approaching, I think of ways of giving back and sharing my blessings. I hope that in my own little way, I can bring a smile to the Jiros of my community.

Not sure if this is also one of HS invisibles, just used my mist on this one so that the white/silver frame will stand out.
This is my first time to use a 12x12 transparency as a background. Just perfect for my layout - - I guess we should all take these words to heart.

So there, I guess it's bye for now. Will try to check in when my son is asleep here in the hospital (thank goodness for laptops and wireless internet connection!!!). Please pray for his speedy recovery - - that would be a wonderful birthday gift for him.
