This is not your usual suspense movie. It has a blend of horrifying scenarios that gives you not only goose bumps but also a sudden feeling of heart attack.

I am very much moved with this movie since I am also a mother of two boys. While I was watching, I felt the every stress, remorse, worries and anger that Karla Dyson had towards the goons. From the moment she called his son then no replied, I felt the rash of adrenaline in my body. I was terrified of the thought that Frankie has lost his way in park or the worst was that somebody took him. And the last worst thought has really happened. Karla saw the big woman forcing his son to get inside the Mustang car. From that moment on, Karla started to chase the kidnappers.

I did feel the misery of Karla while she was hounding the goons. I sympathize how helpless Karla was and how eager she wanted to get and embrace his son. She was left with no choice but just to keep on speeding and pushing herself to limit in order to save Frankie. She even doesn’t have a cellular phone where she can call 911 for help and doesn’t have a time to wait for the police to come over and rescue her son. She chose to hunt the kidnappers on her own despite of all the challenges she has faced.

This movie showed different abilities of a mother in pursue of his son. You will be in awe as you witness how a mother can sacrifice her life in order to save her dearest child. You can really say that mothers are real superheroes.


After watching this movie, I longed to hold my son and wished that I can have him in my arms forever. This is how good the movie is! Therefore, I highly recommend the parents to watch this movie. It will certainly give you a lot of realizations.

Breastfeeding



Breastfeeding journey is never as easy as how everybody thinks about it.

In my experience, my little one had a difficulty on learning how to properly latch on my breast. The breastmilk was all over his face yet he doesn't get the right amount of it. I was worried because he kept on crying and I can already sense how hungry he is. Hence, I was tempted to grab a formula milk in order to satisfy his hunger yet I am so blessed to have a supportive family who lifted my spirit and gave me more strength to continue my breastfeeding journey. It was really hard! I remember that my nipples were already sore because I have to pull it out using the syringes. In that way, my baby will express the milk easier. It actually took me and my baby roughly 1 week to properly learn how to latch.

My patience, endurance and determination made me a succesful breastfeeding mom and I am very proud of it. My baby, Caeden Shan, is turning 2 years old few weeks from now and he is still breastfed. And now, I can say that he is an expert nurser since he drinks milk more efficiently.

Breastfeeding is a great achievement for every mom. It doesn't only give our baby the best and complete nutrients but also comfort. Breastfeeding can work wonders when our baby is hurt, sad, sick, or even when he is upset because I can attest that nursing is a great tantrum-tamer.

KUDOS to all breastfeeding moms!

MOURNING


                                                  THE DAY AFTER LOSS



I never expect that this book will be as practical as I never thought it would be. I am very astonished as to how the author successfully narrated the painful experiences of losing someone’s love.

From the title itself, it is very tempting that we should grab and get a copy of this book since it tells us about the reality of life that each and every one of us is afraid of facing off.  This greatest fear of life is the unexpected, expected or sudden death! We obviously fear this dark event of our lives since it means the permanent end of our happiness and the lost of our connection to the ones we love.

Indeed, death is painful, very awful especially if the deceased is your partner. I can say that the moment you will receive a dreadful message about the death of your partner, you will be in denial that what you’ve heard is wrong. You will ask again the messenger if he’s sure of what he is trying to say. Well, this denial is due to shock and confusion. The moment you receive the message, your body will feel numb and you won’t mind anyone around you. It is because; you are feeling so much pain. It is totally normal. Everyone undergoes this painful stage and the challenge is how you are going to overcome this sorrow.   

This book will greatly help you cope with the loneliness, grievances and fear.  This will guide you on how to let go of the dying and accept the severity of the situation and the expected end. In other words, even if how hard the circumstance would be, there will always be a way on how to process it within ourselves and still find something worth living for, even if it’s the slightest thing.

Overall, I rank this book superb! This is very helpful since all of us will undergo this dire stage of our life. I greatly recommend this book to everyone, even if you are not suffering from any loss, it is good that you will have an idea of what will happen during this terrible time of your life.
