Having a sick child with fever and chills is no fun. I was trying my best to keep little Lila calm until the medicine kicked in. I said, “Let’s think about something happy! What makes you happy?” Lila opened her eyes, looked at me and stopped shivering for a moment and said, “You.” My heart stopped! ♥
“I never had any questions except one about the moment when I could die. I should have chosen the moment before the arrival of my children, for since then I’ve lost the option of dying. The sharp smell of their sun-baked hair, the smell of sweat on their backs when they wake from a nightmare, the dusty smell of their hands when they leave a classroom, meant that I have to live, to be dazzled by the shadow of their eyelashes, moved by a snowflake, bowled over by a tear on their cheek. My children have given me the exclusive power to blow on a wound to make the pain disappear, to understand words unpronounced, to possess the universal truth.”
-Ru, a novel by Kim Thuy
