I hope you love someone and choose to live with this person is not based on his/her look, wealth, and reputation.
I also hope that the reason you choose this person is not because you pity him/her.
I pray that your love toward this person is built based on respect and trust.
I also pray that you both equally love one to another. If this is not possible, I pray that you love him/her more and continue to show him/her how to express love and gratitude, including anger and disappointment appropriately.
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, is not pompous, it is not inflated. It is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick tempered, it does not brood over injury. It does not rejoice over the wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things hope all things, endure all things. 1 Corinthian 13:4-7
No, it’s not love when you still feel jealous knowing that someone else could spend time with with a guy whom you have a crush with.
No, it’s not a love when you still have a wishful thinking hoping you could turn back time and do everything so that you could be with someone special. Reality: the person is not with you.
Yes, I will cry a bit when I see the person whom I have a crush with is with someone else.
I visited hospital a lot for these past three days due to a family emergency event. During these past three days, I saw different things and facial expressions going on at the hospital. A fragile patient was lying in the bed with the oxygen mask on. A nurse transported an incubator from one room to another followed by a grandmother. I saw family members waiting outside the surgery-operating room. I also heard the beeping sound coming out from the heart monitor. Among all of these, the saddest moment was when you saw your loved one was poked with needles and had to undergo lots of tests.
This hospital scene was not completely new to me because I volunteered at the hospital when I was in a college. However, this time it felt different. I felt anxious and scared entering the hospital. Perhaps it was because one of my family members was at the hospital. There was so many “what if” questions going on inside my head during these past three days. Questions that some of them could not get answered immediately.
Although I do not have to go back to the hospital again, there is still a glimpse of fear what if I have to return to the hospital again for the same reason. Upon thinking of this, I remembered the words written on a card sent by the priest to me a few years ago. The words are ” Life is changed, not ended.”
Having a college degree or even a doctoral degree plus a good job and loving husband will not guarantee that you will be a mother. It’s because I always see that a profession as a mother is a gift from God. His time and His plan, not our time and our plan.
While you know when you will finish your assignment or work project, your job as a mother is infinite. You are still a mother even after your child goes to a college and later has his or her own family.
You also know your child’s characters very well, just like you know the characters of your team members or co-workers. You have to deal with the ups and downs 24 hours a day, 7 days in a week, 365 days in a year.
I would say this is the most challenging, yet the most rewarding job you could ever asked.
So, whether you are pregnant and expect to see the baby soon or are a mother now, I want you to know how precious your job is. I know some days are easy while others are difficult, but I would like to remind you the happy little moments like when you feel the baby moves around inside your belly, see the smile, hear the first word, get the first kiss and more. These moments are priceless, could not be measured with anything else. Thus, enjoy the journey.
Last but not least, if you are longing to have one and/or still waiting for the good news, I want you to continue to hope for the best.
One has to continue to learn not only to provide better services and assist clients on a daily basis, but also to create more products.
Learning does not end on the day you receive your diploma. Instead, your diploma is a key that allows you to unlock doors of learning. You could open more than one doors and spend time in that room to get more knowledge and seek guidances from another expert. When you close that door, you are ought to share and utilize your skills in a community e.g., workplace, public, institution,etc. This learning cycle won’t end unless we stop looking.
I miss you.
I haven’t seen you for 449 days.
I wish you were here with me.
I wish you could hug me tightly.
I wish you could tell me it will be all right.
I wish I could see your smile.
