March 23

On certain days of the year, we light candles in our house. These are days when we lost someone that we loved.

Today, March 23rd, Meazi lit a candle of her own. She waved Melese over and said, "Come Melese, this is for you too."

These two small beings have changed my life so much. I love them more than I ever thought possible. I feel like I knew nothing about life until I met them.

Their sadness is my sadness.

They are the holders of my heart.
