Everything happens for a reason

Two months ago, my future sister-in-law was announcing that she is pregnant.  The brother and her was the happiest person on earth.  They have been waiting for this wonderful gift from Above for two years.  The prayers has been answered and we are so happy for them.  This is indeed a wonderful blessing for them and now we are planning for their wedding.  This year would be a great year for the family because of these two big events, the wedding of my brother and future SIL and the coming of their baby.  Indeed a good reason to celebrate for these very nice gifts.

Everything went well, until an unexpected thing happened.  The sister-in-law had miscarriage a week ago.  It was very unfortunate.  I am so sad when messaged me telling this sad news.  I felt so sorry for them.  I felt the pain she had at that moment.  I wish we were there to comfort her and the brother.  We just new about the sad news few days ago.  She already discharged from the hospital.  I still comforted her through facebook because they live far from us.  I really felt her pain and sadness.  I just told the SIL that everything happens for a reason.  Maybe it is not time yet.  They will soon be blessed with another one in God’s perfect time.  Always have faith and pray to God.

Six Months Therapy

With all the developments on the nephew’s after a year as pre-schooler, the sister (his mother) still think that the nephew is lacking.  He still needs improvement to be able to cope up with other kids.  The sister brought him to the child therapy center.  The director told the sister that the nephew is to shy.  He did not belong to the special cases, but he is at risk.  If we will not enroll him in therapy class the nephew may belong to the special child cases.  We felt sad for the nephew, and again the sister partly blaming herself for what happened to her son.  If only she is not a working mom, she my give more time to her kids.

Anyways, the nephew will undergo six (6) months therapy sessions.  He can enroll in normal class but with at maximum of 20 students only.  The nephew will go to school in the morning and therapy in the afternoon.  The nephew starts the therapy last month and so far the nephew has development.  If the nephew will get better before six months, we can stop the therapy and we will just do it at home.  The director will conduct seminars to the parents and guardians for us to know how to do the follow up therapy at home.  Hopefully the nephew will get better soon and he will be less shy.

Looking for a house near the city

My older brother and his family are living with us for more than a decade.  Their kids have grown up with us and I am glad that they are living with us because the house would be so lonely if only my father and me in the house.   My father always told me that it is best for my brother to live their own so that they will have freedom to do what they want and for them to buy their own stuff.  My father has a point, however, it would be so lonely without kids running around.  I’d rather choose a messy house than the lonely house.

Two days ago, the brother told the sister that they are looking for a house.  They are thinking of moving out because the house is too far from the school.  They prefer to get a house near the city and the school so they do not have to ride in public vehicles.  It short, they can save money living near the city.  The brother is still looking for a house though but thinking about it makes me so sad knowing that they will be moving out anytime time.  The kids do not like the idea but they have to choice.  To be honest, I am hoping that the brother will not get a house so they will stay and not move out.
