I stared at the numbers in disbelief. I refreshed the page repeatedly, hoping it was just some glitch, that the earning was just not calculated yet.

With a heavy heart, I had to accepted what was to be my new reality.

Here I am, chilling on the couch with my husband on a sunny Sunday, about to enter the second week of what I consider as my half employment.

Just when I was getting a bit of footing, life pulled the rug from under my feet — yet again.

Blinking — blinding lights
Deep into the dark of night

Oh, to catch the sunlight streaming through the green foliage — gently touching the ground with its soft golden light.

A light morning warmth for those who start the day early.

Even birds could not resist its warm touch — perching still on the ground, facing the majestic force.
