Goodbye 2009!

Yes, I am glad to say goodbye to the year that was.

It was a sad year for me and my family. But on the brighter side, I think it was in 2009 that shaped me to become a better mother, sister and daughter. It was a rough ride. There were some events that I wished never transpired but nevertheless, I am glad I (and my family) survived the heavy blows and we're still fighting my battle together.

The best thing that this year probably has taught me was that tragedies are inevitable but when you are together as a family the tragedies would sometimes pass through as if they were just ordinary problems.

Fourteen on the 18th

She turns 14 months today.


And yes, I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of saying this - time flies sooooo fast.

There are still moments when I couldn’t believe we have a little walking doll (sometimes running) around the house. I don't think I'll ever lose that sense of disbelief.

Fourteen is a forgettable number but what makes this day significant is the fact that this also marks the anniversary of the day I learned I was ‘nurturing’ a very large tumor on my left breast. I was flooded with sadness recollecting that but I immediately shifted my gaze to the bubbly toddler beside me and all that sadness just felt like a soap bubble popping on thin air. I wish I can take her anywhere. She’s the only thing that makes me forget I have problems to face and issues to resolve.

There will never be words to express how thankful I am to God for sending me this little bundle of joy. December was always a difficult month for me. And this was also a tough year to face but having her around made it a whole lot easier for me and her dad to get through all those challenges we encountered.

I pray that she will never, ever get tired of eating her fruits and veggies. I also pray that she’d be kept away from harm as she continues to explore the great, wide world around her. She’s such a curious toddler and she really enjoys discovering new things. I also hope that we parents would be more educated on how to better preserve this wonderful gift of nature that God has sent us so this little lady could also enjoy them in her lifetime.
