It has only been a week since I last wrote here, but it seems ages and loads have taken place. At work, at home, my sil, my baking....all pointing towards change and transformation required from me.
I would't want to dwell much about work, suffice to say that I am 'swallowing' all I can, and praying that I have the strength to go on and meet my dateline to retire as planned. As at present it is suffocating!
At home, my eldest girl and boy have been showing their opposite colours that are very bleak and dull. For whatever that they have done whether they did intentionally or not, the actions have definitely reaped apart my heart, no words can describe that. I never thought that I have to go through what I went through, but I'm bracing for more of those. Not that I am asking them to surface, but apparently it is common traits of kids of their age. During that incident I turned to my dear wise Kak Tan, whom apparently went through the same at some point of her teenage life of her daughters....and thank god for quirky fun and sensible friend Sham for lending her ears and wise words....made me reflect upon myself and ponder...to sum up all in all this challenges have brought me closer to my creator, alhamdulillah.
My baking....I have a presentation to make for some project, am praying that that will materialise, inshaallah.
My sil? Indirectly her doctors have indicated that she is done with her chemotheraphy treatment if her fungal infection and stomach TB (that resurfaced due to chemotheraphy), and that's it! Hence, let's hope that the sickness does not relapse or else??? My husband's and bil's bone marrow didn't match for a transplant, so, if I read between the lines, that is the end of the road of treatment for my sil? She is now recuperating at home.
She was so disturbed last week after the result of the bone marrow not matching that she called me. I had a meeting around the area, so I dropped by to console her...but how do you speak to one about death when you yourself is not prepared for one?
But, at the end of it all, it only shows kebesaran tuhan, and only He knows what is best underlying it all...and for me this week's ordeal left me with more kesedaran keinsafan and more ayat-ayat suci Quran to read.
