I'm everywhere,

I'm nowhere,

I'm somewhere.

I'm everybody,

I'm nobody,

I'm somebody.

You're everywhere,

Captivating my attention,

You're nowhere,

I search for you,

You're somewhere,

I just can't find you.

You're everybody,

We can all relate to you,

You're nobody,

only I care,

You're somebody,

we can be somebodies together.


Life Poem by Hannah


Through each tear that falls,
Through each giggle-burst,
Through each hug,
There's friends,
They're the reason you cry,
the reason you laugh,
the reason you hug,
the reason you LOVE.

Through each heart break,
Through each painful experience,
Through each hurt person,
There's love,
The reason you have friends,
The reason you laugh,
The reason you hug,
The reason you cry.

Through each day,
Through each moment,
Through each minute,
There's Love,
There's Friends,
There's Laughs,
There's hugs,
There's cries,

There's Life.

Deafvideo TV: Which Way Should You Go?

Note: It's for Deafvideo TV. They'll understand what I'm talking about. :)

This is a path with his/her own opinions based on incomplete evidences or misrepresenting meanings of the matters. Would you just go on following him/her without checking the information? Or would you give in to share the productive insights with him/her.

This is a path with productive insights on the matters not just the half of truth. Would you join the healthy dialogue on the facts? Or would you ignore the facts?

Which way should you go?

True vloggers with productive insights (and also who give in to share productive insights to clear up the misrepresenting meanings and join healthy dialogues) are to stay!

Luke and Margie in Newspaper

It surprised me that Luke and Margie live in Colorado Springs. I used to live there for three and half years. I never knew about them or met them. My hubby read it last night and then showed it to me. To my surprise, they live in Colorado. Maybe, I'd meet them someday. You can click it and make it enlarged. You can also print it if you want to.
I'm sad that they got in the third. Nevertheless, I'm proud of them for their bravery in Amazing Race. Luke brought me a warm heart by his quote: their third-place showing is absolutely a victory for deaf people, and a victory for women over 50.

Congrats, Luke and Margie for your hard-work, bravery, and making all the way to the end in the last race.

A Commitment to Make

Hello Everyone!

I have less than few commitments to make! Before I begin, I want to wish my dearest deaf brother a happy birthday! Today's his birthday! He needs to be reminded to wish me in October, too. Hee-hee...He always forgets my birthday, but I call him and tell him that it's my birthday. He smiles and says, Happy Birthday. We talk pretty often on Video Phone.

#1 I'm a Christian! Jesus is my Rock! He's always good! No matter what happens in my life.

#2 My deaf brother is gay. I love him because he's a person, not a gay. I don't care if he's gay or not. It's not my business.

We respect each other and still love each other!

Happy Birthday, my deaf brother, Ray! I love you!

My son, Brandon's 4!

Happy Birthday, Brandon! He's going to be four! We're going to take him to Wal-mart for choosing a birthday cake. His grandma works in the bakery shop. She usually gives him a free cookie. :)

Awesome Moms

I got this email from my friend. I thought it's too good not to share it in my blog. Happy Mother's Day to all my friends, vloggers, and bloggers. I know it's pretty early to say but want to wish you a Happy Mother's Day!!

Awesome Moms
Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom ..

I'm so proud of all my beautiful children and granddaughter.

May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life

His Directions, His Light

Jesus said to them, For a little time longer the light will be among you; while you have the light go on walking in it, so that the dark may not overtake you: one walking in the dark has no knowledge of where he is going.

John 12:35
