Call 593 : WET WIPES

Hello Son,

It's been a crazy 2 weeks. You have been with Mom all the way, all day, every day in every way. It has been amazing and Mom will always, always be grateful to JESUS and Mama Mary for allowing us to have these really awesome connections. Nobody will ever understand what we have ... and You know what?? 

That is so ... so ... okay. 

Dad understands it.

Justine understands it.

Mom sometimes cannot believe that we have these amazing zap - zap connections. 

So anyway, last Saturday, July 23 ... we had our Parents' Day.

We had to transport quite a lot of stuff from the school to the hall of another condo nearby. Our condo. The school van was packed with trays and baskets and files and folders etc. We had 2 younger staffs who helped with all the packing and moving.

Fast-forward ...

After the parents - teachers conference, all the school stuffs were transferred back into the school van. We were going to leave everything in the van and only unload on Monday when we (Dad and Mom) go to school.

On Monday morning, the 2 staffs whom Mom was depending on to help carry all those stuffs from the van to the school, were on emergency leave. One had a high fever and really couldn't make it to school and the other had to take the morning off to attend to some urgent government errands.

Omg ...

On the way to school, Mom told Dad, "A and C will not be coming in this morning ... so the stuffs that we have to bring up ... let's just take our time ... no rush ... don't stress ... if we have to go up to school and come down to the van like 30 times ... no problem ... we will just take our time ... okay?"

Dad just nodded.

We reached school.

Upon turning into our parking bay, oh my, would you believe it, but there ... right in front of our parking spot, was a supermarket trolley.

Omg ...

A trolley from TESCO.


Oh wow! Can you believe that???

Mom has not seen that trolley in the condo compound before ... not in the one and a half years that we have been there. Dad said he has seen that trolley before but it was like somewhere in the indoor parking area.

How in the world did this get outside and placed right before our eyes?

Mom laughed, "Omg ... Son knows the 2 teachers are on leave ... all the things are in the van ... will be difficult for us to carry them up to the 5th floor ... he brought the trolley to us ... he knows we need help ..."

With that trolley, we only had to fill it up ... and another staff just pushed the trolley into the lift and straight to school ... mom did not have to lift her finger to take anything ...

Oh my ...

What are the chances?

Her 2 staffs were on leave and she received immediate help from her son in heaven.


Thank you, Son. :D

Smile ... a grateful smile.

So that was on Monday.

4 days later ... on Thursday ...

Mom saw one of her teachers using a wet hankerchief to wipe one of the children's mouth after snack time.

Mom chided, "Don't use the hanky ... use wet wipes ..."

The teacher told Mom that we were out of wet wipes.

Darn. Why was Mom not informed earlier? She could have replenished it like - last weekend when she went shopping. It was Thursday that day ... she could only get the wipes like --- during the coming weekend.

We would still be out of wet wipes on Friday, the next day.

About one and have hours later ... 

Gosh, you're so not gonna believe this.

The parent of one of our 5 year old students came to pick up his daughter.

One of the staffs brought the girl down to the pick up point. Would you believe it but that parent handed over to Dad (who was at the pick up point) a bag filled with wet wipes!

Dad said he counted and there were 14 tubs. 



The teacher whom Mom chided earlier for not using wet wipes, happened to be downstairs as well ... as she was attending to another parent ... brought the bag up. She couldn't believe her eyes and ears. She was like, exclaiming, "We were just talking about the wet wipes just now ... It's a miracle!!!"

Yes, yes ... It certainly is a miracle.

We were out of wet wipes ... and a bagful ... not just a bagful but a bag containing 14 tubs ... just dropped into our hands moments later.

14 TUBS !!!

Omg ...

What are the chances???

No chance.

It's all You. Mom knows.

Nobody, nobody but You. :D

Thank You, Son ... for helping out from where You are.

Keep the zaps coming.

Everywhere we are, there You'll be ...

We miss You so very much.

Oh, and today ... after brunch with Aunty C and her friend ... Mom kinda cut short the conversation and said we needed to leave ... it was kinda abrupt ... she had in fact asked Dad, "Was that too abrupt? Did that sound rude?"

We got into the car ... and guess what ...

When You say nothing at all ... was on the radio.

Mom's eyes shot to the dashboard.

It was 11:10 pm.

She pointed and exclaimed, "Omg ... 21 ... say nothing ... "

Zap Zap Zap. We had to be abrupt because we had to hurry to the car, to catch this message. That was clear ... on hindsight. 

You must have whispered to your mother :

Go to the car now, Ma ... :D

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart

Without saying a word, you can light up the dark

Try as I may I could never explain

What I hear when you don't say a thing

The smile on your face let's me know that you need me

There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me

The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if wherever I fall

You say it best when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking out loud

But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd

Try as they may they can never define

What's being said between your heart and mine

The smile on your face let's me know that you need me

There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me

The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if wherever I fall

You say it best when you say nothing at all

You say it best, Son ... when You say nothing at all ...<3

We love You so much. 

Hugs and squeeze from all at home.
