I just don't know where or how to begin to explain my absence. So many things have been happening in these last few months. I simply couldn't find the time to pen down my thoughts...Where do I begin?
Should I start by sharing my immense joy of older daughter's admission into a good junior college here in Singapore which was backed by months of hard work, heartache and anxiety? Then by the mountainous task of unpacking countless number of boxes (280 actually!} which were part of our shipment from America? There are still many unpacked boxes lying around and it will be 2 months since they have arrived at our doorstep!
This was followed by my already frail health which took a backseat by refusing to react positively to any medicines. Now I am totally relying on diet, exercise and natural supplements to see if that somehow helps to treat my irritable bowels. For someone who has been on medicines for the last 25 years, this is a big step.
So many many other nitty gritty incidents took place among all these major incidents ....
my younger girl's refusal to accept Singapore and what it entails
my recent voyage into volunteering to help the women in my community
my husband's constant absence because of his work
All of us go through so many ups and downs in our lives. but what really holds us together is our perseverance to continue to do things that matter to us, to let things that cant be changed go, to move on with our lives .... So that is what I am intending to do. A friend K gave me a timely reminder over the weekend- to not give up on my blog. Thank you dear and hence here I have returned :))
My home is
usually in a mess and has dust settled on almost everything. But I believe laughter and love will win the day. In 20 years, my girls won't remember how messy the house was but will remember the time we spent together and the love they felt...
