After a red-eye flight, a 3-hour layover and another hour and a half flight, I was met at the airport by my sisters, nephew and my son. We then headed to the beach because I wanted to walk along the beach with my son. He loves the water, but he is always afraid to try anything at any new place. This was our first time at this resort.
As always, at first he refused to step into the water when I asked him to. So, I did the routine of me stepping into it and showing him it was fun to get the feet wet. After a few minutes, he signaled for me to go back to where he was standing with my sister, and as soon as I reached out my hand, he clutched it and stepped forward.
After that, he didn’t want to leave anymore.
It was cloudy, but it was still a beautiful Saturday morning with the sound of the waves, the cool breeze and the warm sea water. And the love of my life clutching my hand.
Hope you have a lovely weekend, 💕

I’ve been living in Jimei for over a decade, and this place is just a 10-minute walk from my old apartment, but I’ve only been to this place twice. It’s not my in my usual route when I go walking. Yesterday though I decided to show my friend this place, and we loved it. It was 17 degrees C, cloudy and breezy.

It’s early morning,
Hardly anything is astir
Save for a couple of cars
And the birds overhead
Singing a happy tune.
I say a prayer of thanks
For this time of quiet
Before it is broken
By the loud honking
Of trucks and buses
That rouse the city
From its much needed sleep.
Daily Prompt: Honk
There’s darkness everywhere I turn.
Though it’s daylight, and I feel
The sun shining brightly
On my darkened skin,
I don’t see a thing
Except for the darkness
Permeating my mind and my soul,
As I contemplate your departure from all this —
What was once a life filled with bright colors
Now turned black.
Daily Prompt: Black
Beauty is temporary. Life is temporary. The temporariness of life makes it even more beautiful. Cherish beauty. Cherish life.
Have a lovely weekend!💕
