It’s been a while since I last blogged.
Sorry for the infrequent blog entries because I am still adapting to adulthood and working as a teacher. Life as a teacher is no easy feat at all! Although I must admit that it is very fulfilling especially you see your lower progress pupils improve, I think I kinda overworked myself recently.
Sometimes I just feel a little bad because I don’t get to spend as much time with my boyfriend, family and my ministry friends. But I thank God that they are really understanding and supportive of my dreams.
I realise that amidst the busyness, I miss spending time with my family the most. I miss the home cooked dishes by my mum like the old cucumber soup, egg fried rice with shrimps and not to forget the lotus soup with peanuts and pork. After a long day at work, I would always look forward having home-cooked meals like this that would be waiting for me at home. It’s wasn’t just about the food, but it’s about appreciating the love and effort put into the preparation of these meals.
I remember the days when I was younger where I would always pester my mum to walk me to the bus stop in the morning at 6.a.m as I was afraid of the dark. I remember clinging on to my mum and holding on to her hands while she walked me to the bus stop to wait for the school bus. Some kids around my age were rather independent and they would ask their parents to do that until they reach upper primary. But for me, somehow this morning routine lasted all the way till I finished my Junior College. I didn’t know how to appreciate how much she has contributed for the family when she had to juggle both work and household chores until now when I started work and I realised that having to do the household chores after work can be very tough when you are already tired after a long day at work.
Mummy I just want to say that I love you and thank you for the sacrifice you have made to the family. I appreciate you and your love for the family every single day and not just on Mothers’ Day. Being able to spend more time with you and loving you is my greatest honour.
