Welcome 2011

Happy New Year everyone. I'm home watching tv and had a late take out Dominoes for dinner. This is basically routine every year. Somehow i dont find it enjoyable driving around town or hanging out watching the fireworks. I hate the traffic and i know we'll be stuck for hours on the road. So..yeah that's just 'us'..lol.

My sadness in 2010 is still very much inside me. I do welcome 2011 but still i have not recovered from lost after lost. My uncle passed away just 4 days ago. It reminds me that with every year approaching i'm closer to losing the elderly in the family. That saddens me..those people that used to rock & craddle me is saying goodbyes. I know..life goes on, sooner or later we too will be meeting out creator. I'm hoping that this year come what may, i'll be given the strength to stay positive, mentally n emotionally prepared.

To all friends, May you be blessed with good health and great things in life. Stay strong and take one step at a time. Life is beautiful, find a spot in your heart to embrace the simple and smaller things in life. I have taken too much for granted, i will not, not treasure every moment i had bathing my kids, eating together, messing up my bed laughing n poking at them, watching their favourite channel and many more. The small things in life that i failed to notice before.

Last but not least, thank you 'Allah swt' for giving me another year to look forward too! Welcome 2011...:)
