It's been nearly a year since I started taking my blog seriously.
Nine months since I had a compelling urge to write down all my random thoughts, innermost musings...I still consider myself a novice at it actually. Looking back, I don't think I've done too badly...
The 29th August 2010 was my dear dad's 64th birthday. It has become more and more difficult for me to visit him - not that I have lack of transport or anything like that. Well, my mum rang me on my dad's birthday and asked me if I would like a lift to see him. I really felt the resistance coming up in me...and tears welled up in my eyes. It really is hard to explain how hard it is to cope with seeing a loved one like the way my dad is; bed bound and unable to see, speak or take food properly. To say it is heartbreaking is an understatement. But I took courage, and went to see him. After all he is my dad.
I believe that God is by my side at such difficult times. The 'Footprints In The Sand' verse is my favourite of all time (Click here) This poem uplifts me at times of anxiety and I know that I'm not alone
