My Today

today is Gab's birthday
Yaman is working on two activity books

our neighbor's son invited Mom to his marriage tomorrow

we had yellow cab NYC pizza for the first time
Yaman's cough and colds manifested more late in the day
and one boy is overtaking me in the wedding altar
i'm fighting off sadness for the love i left behind in manila
worry over a daughter's poor health
by starting with a chapter
checking facts, numbers, and references
tomorrow is indeed another day
