Family in need is family indeed...

Good day beautiful people.

Do you have family?  I'm sure you do. What a question to ask. Do you come from a big family? Do you have many uncles and aunties? If you do, I'm sure you have many cousins too.

Family is a very unique unit. Each unit functions differently. Some are a close knit ones. Every member knows each other. The members love each other. Ones is considered fortunate to have loving and caring extended family members. 

No doubt, some rarely meet. They seldom talk to each other. They live far away from each other. In short, they are quite separated and these are distant family members.

From my observation, extended family could turn out to be your immediate family if your hand is needed. On the contrary, extended family would be distant family if you are in need. 

Most of them would distant themselves from you once their chores are taken care of. They hardly drop by. They scarcely ask about your elderly ailing parents, i.e. their very own uncles and aunts who worked their fingers to the bone during their parents' (cousins') last rite. These are uncle and aunt who readily offer them a shoulder to cry on.

In a nutshell, love and respect thy parents. No one else love and care  for you like them. Love your siblings. They are your right-handers. Please bear in mind, extended family in need is family indeed.

Side Business vs Core Business ...

Good day beautiful people. It's a Friday! A beautiful day to unwind and loosen up.

The past two weeks have been hard for me. My energy level was dwindling. I was extremely fatigue. My brain cells depleted. A week meant for celebration and festival has turned out to be a very hectic one.

My Core Business was messed up. Towers of books piled up high on my working table. My Rewards System weren't progressing. Kids were after me. They wanted to redeem the accumulated points. My lesson plannings weren't the usual ones. They were neither challenging nor spellbinding. I didn't feel good. I was robbed of the precious time with my students. I was robbed of the quality time with my loved ones too.

All in all, I have no one but myself to blame since I always feel obliged to serve my school. I am pleased to serve my district. I just feel honoured to serve my state and my country. Whenever these Side Businesses got in my way, my Core Business would suffer a little setback. I would definitely make up for lost time.

It's my day...

Hi peeps.

Today is the day; the very day that I was brought into this world decades ago. My arrival brought much joy to both my mom and dad. I'm pretty sure of that as I am their first born.

On this special occasion, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to those who have crossed my path. I want to say the two simple little yet powerful and meaningful words.

Thank you.

Today, I want to say thank you.

Thank you to my beloved mom and dad for bringing me into this world.
Thank you to my beloved mom and dad for bringing me up with lots of love and care.
Thank you to my beloved mom and dad for giving me the most precious gift, i.e. education.
Thank you to my beloved husband for being my companion and a great supporter.
Thank you to both my lovely son and daughter for being such adorable children.
Thank you to my all five great siblings whom I have shared many amazing and precious memories with.
Thank you to my all wonderful teachers who have educated me well.
Thank you to my all amazing friends, with whom I have shared tears, laughter and sorrow and joy.

All of you have blessed me in ways which I could never express. You've made my life more beautiful and meaningful.

Thank you!
