A Celebration of Life

This may be off my usual topic...  but i feel i just have to share my what i felt when i attended a 'celebration of life' get together.  Well, this is the new term for funeral service or a wake.

I usually do not attend this kind of gathering or even goes to a hospital to visit sick loved ones.  I do not know the reason why but i just do not want to do that, unless really necessary.  I just realized the reason when i attended my cousin's celebration of life.  It has to do with 'mortality', not only mine but to all the people around me.

In just a second, something might happen to anybody - whether a sickness, an accident or just about anything else.  A life will be ended just like that, without any warning.   And i just do not want to face this reality of life then. But now i know and i accept that this will happen to everybody, including me or to the people i love.

So what can i do now?  I will just make it a point to express my love to those people.  I will not keep any ill feelings about anybody.  I will make the most out of my day.  Spend more quality time with my family.  These things will seem impossible to do all the time, but i will try my best.

Maybe, it is also time for you to feel what i am feeling - for you to value people around you.

Always be happy,
Zarah

Do Not Grow Too Fast...

I have been looking back and starting to realize how fast time flies...

I just do not want to let go of my baby, i do not want her to grow older anymore.  I want her to always be by my side, needing me, asking me about everything and loving me...  oh, i am getting teary eyed now!

It seems like yesterday when i am just changing her diapers, now she can take a bath by herself.

I used to tell stories before she sleeps, now - she is the one full of stories.  It is her turn now to tell what happened to her for the day.

I used to just carry her and stroll the park, now she is leading the way.

It seems like yesterday when i just choose the dresses that she will wear.  Now, she knows what she wants when we go shopping.

Oh, she now even wants to cook by herself.. (but of course, she still cannot)!

Do not grow old too fast, my honey!  Please...  be our baby for some more years!

I love you, anak!


Always be happy,
Zarah
