Thank you all for your comforting words and thoughts, and your prayers.
As I struggle to come to terms with the situation I unexpectedly found myself in, I kicked myself repeatedly for not seeing it coming.
Beware - things may not be what they seem at all. Never in my wildest dreams I imagine myself going through what I'm going through now.
I had absolutely no intention of ending the year with that kind of post. It is not fair to you my readers to be burdened with what is a very personal matter.
While I was hesitant to share the exact nature of the tragedy, I couldn't help but put my feelings down as I have done on many occasions in this blog. I have been sharing both happy and sad moments with you.
Some of you had called it brave and generous.
Until now I'm not sure if it was not a stupid thing to do. I risked turning away my faithful followers and readers.
It was to be my last post. I just hope that some good came out of it.
What happen to me now is of little consequence. If you guys had learned something from this episode in my life, then my pain and suffering had not been in vain.
It just so happen that this is the dawn of a new year. My very best wishes to all for a delightful and peaceful journey ahead. What a way to start mine. If there's a silver lining, (or hikmah, as we call it) I haven't seen it yet.
Remember, don't take things for granted - show your appreciation to your spouse, your children, your parents, and all your loved ones before it is too late.
