I took this picture of my baby daughter when she was just 3! Just look at that sweet cute face!
My daughter Nurzaimah is one such person whom I miss terribly. She was 9 when I had to migrate to KL after my divorce from her mother. Nurzaimah is now 14 years old and she's also like her brother Zikri, a very brilliant student and high achiever. I pray for her success everyday.
Children her age don't know what happened between her parents when they have no alternative but to choose their own separate ways in life!
She grew up angry that her father is no longer around to shower her with his love, protect her from all harm from the outside world and she is growing up feeling very, very bitter with me. I don't blame her.
I know how it feels not to have my parents caring for me as I was raised by my sisters after my parents split!
God! How I miss her...she's always in my heart and my prayers...
You win some ; you lose some! So they say...but I don't want to lose anyone else anymore in my life!
For all the baptism of fire that I had to go through in my life, God Almighty saw fit to bestow on me, a gift from heaven in the form of my present wife!
A gentle soul, so very patient and understanding...that at times I just can't believe that she'd choose me, a simple being who's neither wealthy or an academic like her.
The love and kindness she shows to me since the day I met her online and gradually graduated to be my missus for life is simply something that I can only have dreamed for after suffering all those long years I was living in Penang.
To put it in a nutshell, I was dying inside and showed all the signs of premature aging that comes with trying to fool myself that it was my destiny to suffer in silence!
Those of you who are going through similar episodes in your own life's, take some time to consider your options.
We live just once in this earthly life. Cherish each and everyone who means anything to us right now , while we are still alive and able to show them exactly how much they mean to us.
You don't have to buy them expensive gifts to show them that you care for them. You don't have to go to great lengths to show them how much they mean to you and that they are very,very special to you in your life!
Just tell them that you love them, straight from your heart. That is more than enough to make them feel appreciated, feel loved and feel cherished.
Speaking from my heart, I ask that each and everyone of us take this golden opportunity given by God Almighty to us to show those darlings in our life, those diamonds in our earthly existence their rightful places in the pedestals of our souls!
Let's show them how much they mean to us , in our own ways, God willing! My wellwishes to all!
