I'm a simple girl with a li'l dream, of seeing her humble works in exquisite print, to share with all who feels for words, writtenwith an unsupressable urge. So indugle in my fantasies, and plow your way through my memories, greatly appreciated you will be, if you can leave your comments here for me.

Chris Medina made me cry
For those who have watched American Idol, you would know who Chris Medina is. He was the guy who made me cry and broke my heart when he shared the story of how his beautiful wife-to-be suffered a traumatic brain injury after a terrible car accident. He was the one who made me cry again when he was ousted from the Top 24 in American Idol. I teared again when I heard his latest heart-wrenching single, "What Are Words".
Could anyone love the way he does? Where does he get his strength from to go on day after day - taking care of his now handicapped girlfriend? How will his life be from this point? How long can he hold on to his love for her? How long can he wait for her to recover - assuming that is even possible? He is but only 26 years old....
At the American Idol audition, Steve Tyler went up and gave Chris' girlfriend Juliana Ramos an emotional kiss before saying to her,"Hey girl, I just heard your fiance sing and he is so good cause he sings to you all the time. I could tell… That’s why he sings so good because he sings to you."
My eyes stung with tears and it absolutely broke my heart to hear that. I was overwhelmed with deep sadness for both of them. Times like these, you wonder if God was testing their love. Times like these, I count my blessings and treasure my loved ones even more. Times like these, I pray that the Lord will not put me through such ordeals - because it will be too much for me to bear.
If this was indeed a test, I pray that the Lord will have mercy on this young couple, and make Juliana Ramos whole again.
