I am not a child anymore. But what I
can do is to journey you through my childhood experiences and how I thought about it then. So, while I open my diaries and start writing and reminiscing about all my entries, you just sit back, read, learn, and enjoy. :)

"Define children, and you are defining innocence." ---Me

Wednesday, October 27, 2010


I was about 3-5 years old when CherryBlossom first saved me from a near-death accident. My family was having a nice relaxing visit to the pool; and me and my friend, Cha-cha, was playing in the kiddie pool. To tell you the truth, I don't actually remember everything. It was so long ago. All I know is that somehow, when the adults were taking their showers, me and Cha-cha ended up playing near the adult pool and I ended up falling in.

The adults with us asked Cha-cha where I was but she seemed quiet. And that's when they began to worry. Papa Alvin, a family friend, suspected I must have fallen into the swimming pool and dived down to get me.

All I remember of this, or what I thought I remembered, is: 

1.) Leaning over the pool somewhat captivated, before falling in.
2.) Seeing my Papa Alvin, swimming towards me, before falling unconscious.
3.) Waking up with wires all around me and breastfeeding from my Mom.

Of course, I'm not sure if # 1 and # 2, is real or if it's just from my dreams or imagined up by my mind and I got so used to it that I think it's real.

But # 3, I am almost 100% Certain that this is real. I just know, I know that it is a real memory.

CherryBlossom saved my life that day. My grandfather says that what was most heart-wrenching about it, was when they asked me if I prayed, I cried and confessed I did but God did not answer.

Truth is; and I didn't know it back then, He did. He saved me from dying and sent CherryBlossom to save me for something greater. Some greater plans He has for me that I have yet to find out.

You saw me before I was born. 
Every day of my life was recorded in your book. 
Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
~ Psalm 139:16 NLT
