my random ramblings

choosing joy

I am currently stuck in a lot of work. That I neglect my blog, fail to see my friends and just hit the sack when I get home. I barely have time for myself.

Skipped going to the dentist to get my braces adjusted, even forgot to see my dermatologist!

Every night, I go check Facebook just to be in the know about what is happening in my circle of friends and somehow I cannot relate. Its like I’m trapped in an alternate world where all I see is other people’s blessings. I see their happy faces, travel pictures, family outings, new bags, nice clothes, shiny cars and the latest dose of gossip (who is with whom, who is seen in where…etc.).  I then think about how badly I want a vacation, daydream about leaving and travelling… that always ends with I wish I have more money. Then I get sad.

But, this time my self pitying was halted by a pop up chat message from an old friend.

It says:  Sorry for disturbing your evening but, can I please ask for help? I will be blunt. I am jobless for more than a year, I can barely keep up with my living expenses I need a job. please help.

Bam! Instant reality check.

While I was busy complaining that I am buried in a pile of work, my friend desperately prays for work.

I was appalled at my behavior and quickly thanked God for the daily blessings I receive.

Then proceeded to look at the net for some leads that could fit my friend. After a while some of my friends found something for the friend in need.


There is a lot to be thankful for.

Thank God for everyday blessings and carry on a positive attitude.

Another day and it will be Mother’s Day. I still don’t have anything to give my Mum.

I haven’t been able to go out and buy her stuff since our house-help is on an indefinite vacation (again), and I go straight home after work to accompany my siblings. Our Mum is a working Mum and when she comes home at night, she will still be the one that cooks dinner for us. then we all go to sleep. This has become our daily routine for this week.

I will never know how my Mum does it. Its as if she has unlimited supply of energy. She goes to work, comes home and does housework. Chat us up over dinner and remind us to drink our medicines/water. She is the first up in the morning and the last to sleep at night.

I want something nice for my Mum.

I suppose I can go buy something for her tomorrow. Or better yet, get her to rest tomorrow by cooking dinner. While I am not exactly good in the kitchen, I could probably give it a try. If it fails, there is always take-out.



May God bless you always as you have blessed me with life, lessons and love. May your troubles be few and your joys be many.

The blessing of the Lord be upon you! -Psalm 129:8

Happy Mother’s Day!

Much Love,
