Some of you may be aware of the pain and heartache my family and I are going through at the moment.
I initially thought it best to cancel FYBF this week.
Yet in this grief, I figured FYBF doesn’t have to always be “Happy, happy, joy, joy”
Just like death doesn’t have to be final.
I still love Kak Rytha. Somehow, she knows it.
With her vivacious, bubbly personality, she’d give me her signature beautiful smile and tell me “to get a grip and just friggin’ host the link, already.”
This past week, when I’ve been at my weakest, I’ve somehow found strength through her memories.
She was a loving wife and mum of 3, holding down a full-time job as a kick-arse dentist as well as being a smarty-pants lecturer.
Constantly surrounded by people who loved and respected her, she always found joy in keeping busy.
She truly lived life to the very fullest and I know she would want the same for me.
Happy or sad, she would’ve wanted me to continue connecting with my blogging community.
The other thing I’ve discovered this past week is the power of humanity.
Thank you for all your kind messages of support, comfort and prayers.
In all the suffering this world throws at us, it’s love and compassion that can bring that much-needed reprieve.
Wishing you all harmony, peace and prosperity for 2014. Take care of yourself and your loved ones.
