2014 Recapped

       2014 has been a bittersweet year for me, my family and for my beloved nation. In January I had a miscarriage. The pregnancy was unexpected but I was over the moon. Beloved and the children were beside themselves. However, it was not meant to be. The whole ordeal was painful and it drained me physically and mentally. I cried for many, many days. Even now, I still grieve. Enough said..

          2014 also marked the year that my children are growing up.  It dawned on me that they will be flying from their nest soon. Hence this story.... Hazim was offered to continue his studies in MRSM Merbok. Upon getting the text from MARA, I felt this inner peace settling over me. He would be in good hands now. All praises to Allah. You cant help but have high expectations on your firstborn. You will do well, Ajim...
        2014 also was a big year for my little muffin, Nina. She sat for her UPSR. She had been blessed with dedicated school teachers and experienced tuition teachers. Through her hard work as well, she managed to score 5As. All thanks to Allah. I reckon I aged a few years the day she obtained her results. It was nerve wrecking. I wouldnt want to go through it again but I know I have to. Wafi will be facing his UPSR in the next few years.
       2014 was also the year that beloved had a harsh wake up call. For a few months, he suffered this excruciating pain on his kidney. The symptoms were there. I begged him to go and have a check up. Being a typical Malay man, he brushed it off assuring me that it was not something serious. Well, it was... serious I mean. When we went to Metro Hospital, the doctor confirmed it was gall bladder.  He had to undergo a surgery. Alhamdulillah he is alright now..Before he was discharged, we had a long talk with the nutritionist. The list of food to be avoided is so long...I doubt whether beloved can faithfully stick to the recommended diet. I was pleasantly surprised though. Until today, he is making the effort to change his lifestyle. Bravissimo!!
      2014 was the year that 2 Malaysian airplanes went down.... Ahhhh... the grief, the sorrow and these feelings of despair rocked my beloved nation. I didnt have anybody i know in the airplanes but it still left me feeling sad and bewildered.. My prayers for all the victims and my heartfelt condolences to victims' families and friends.
     So, that's it. I have let it all out. I feel better now..
