Reflections on January

What a year it has been so far! I started at an emotional and spiritual high. I was thankful about all that I have and grateful for all the blessings that God has bestowed on me. Even with the seemingly impossibly high sales order targets set , I was certain that God will help me achieve these targets. I felt almost invincible.

But lately, this feeling has been overwhelmed by exhaustion and weariness. I am still thankful for God's blessings, but the work load and pressures has started to take its toll on me. I spent too much time at work and too little time with my children. Even my daughter has given up on me. Everyday, she'd remind me to call her from work and I have not kept my promise for the past 3 weeks! Today she told me that if I don't call, its ok.. then we see each other tonight. I felt terrible.

A dear friend from university days lost her battle against cancer and passed away on 30 Jan. She had fought hard and with such determination for the past 14 months, she will remain an inspiration to all of us who know her. I pray that her family will find peace and strength to carry on without her. Rest in peace, Ai Bee.

My hubby and his mother (my MIL) cannot see eye to eye on many things and that added to my stress.

Can hardly find time to bake. Even when I do, I cannot find the time to post/update this blog.

I pray that things get better this month... I know it will!
