On this New Year's eve, in saying farewell to 2008, and hello to 2009, I have a lot to be thankful for.
Syukur alhamdulillah, 2008 has been a good year for me, Ayah, the kids and our loved ones, and we make do'a that 2009 will bring with it more love, joy, rezqi, wisdom, success, and more importantly - good health for us to enjoy all that Allah SWT has bestowed upon us, insya Allah. And we make do'a that we'll be able to give more to others, too, insya Allah.
I have made so many new friends in the last one year through this humble blog of mine, and I have also found some long-lost friends, too. And for that, I am so grateful.
So, on this eve of 2009, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you abundance of good things in life, love, joy, laughters, wisdom, success, health and semoga dipanjangkan umur dan dimurahkan rezqi, insya Allah.
And as we leave 2008, I would like to leave all of you with this little conversation that I had with Hasya and Hilman today, and something for all of us to ponder upon -
Hilman : Mommy, why do cats eat mice?
Me : Hmmmm, I dunno. I've never thought about it, Hilman. Why do you ask?
Hilman : I dunno, I'm just curious.
Me : I guess, it's like, why do WE eat chicken, vegetables, and fish, etc.? Because we just do? Hmmmm, I really don't have any other explanation to that, Hilman.
Hasya : Errr, Mommy, do you think, MAYBE it's because mice taste like fish? MAYBE?
Me : ???!
(You don't know where this is going, do you? And I am not making any sense here, am I? Oh well,what the heck? Hehehe...))
Guys, what I'm trying to convey here is that - this new year, whenever you cannot find any answers to any questions, or when it feels like you're walking straight onto a solid wall, or when you're stuck with stuff, and when you feel nobody could help you explain the things that need explanation, and ALL THAT are pulling you down, be it at work, or otherwise, just spend MORE time with the kids.
They might provide you with the answers that you're looking for. Be it logical, or illogical ones.
But,hey, even if their answers are illogical, they will surely bring smiles to our lives throughout the new year, non? :)
And just think. Another new year would mean that we have one less year to spend with our kids, with our loved ones. Just think about it.
Just try to spend more time with your loved ones this New Year :)
And I'm sure, 2009 will be one of the best years in your life, insya Allah :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR, Y'ALL...
