It was a tough time last week for me. It first started with my aunt being admitted to the hospital. It really broke my heart to see my lovable Mak Lang surrounded by tubes coming in and out of her fragile body. It's been a lot tougher when you least expect this to happen. Mak Lang is the gentlest person you'll ever meet. And to see her in that state just broke me. She's like a mother to me. She taught me how to mengaji the Quran and I will always be thankful to her for that. I pray for her speedy recovery and maybe you can spend a minute praying for her well-being, as well. I would truly appreciate it.
And I also had a huge argument with Papa last week. Let me just say that this wasn't the first time it happened. I'm not saying I'm a kurang ajar punya anak, but there are some things in life me and Papa don't see eye to eye with. Thankfully, it's done and over with. But I always knew this was bound to happen. The problem with me and Papa is that we are sometimes too much the same in being the both of us are very passionate about what we believe in. Sometimes a wee bit too passionate that we tend to get emotional. And when you add ego in with the emotions, sometimes sparks can really fly.
Things have been a bit better this week, but hardly so. Mak Lang is still unconscious. We're all just hoping for the best and I hope that each one of us be strong enough to deal with anything, no matter what the outcome.
Other than that, the holiday season was quite okay. It's been truly a roller-coaster ride from last week. I'm still feeling a bit dazed from all the action and events. A friend got married, EE coming home from her honeymoon, and the world celebrated the holidays with the anniversary of the tsunami. A year ago. My, my...has it really been a year? They say the end of the year is always a good time to reflect on the past. I hardly have a grip on the present. But I learned a lot these past few weeks. Maybe that's my only consolation for what have been tough times for the little 'ol nobody me.
Thanks for listening, anyway.
