As I sat here in my little room where I just had my curtains changed:D, thought of all the things I went through in 2008 and of the things I will still have to get by for 2009. And it made me smile to have realized that God's responses into my life are still wiser than my own prayers.
Today, we just celebrate my parents' 41st wedding anniversary. Looking back to all the things that they two went through, the fighting and the making amend they have had as part of every married life..I don't kn0w how to thank my parents still for keeping a family intact. And though sometimes, it's getting really harder to understand their moods now at their age, I still couldn't help but think and wish if somewhere in the future when God permits and I will reach the same age, I will have someone who'll understand me and be patient for me in my old age too. Well, how early must I have thought of these things though..but whether we like it or not,we'll get there.:P
I continue to pray for good health and happiness for my parents. I think most of our prayers already go to them that we almost forgot to have one for our own. But they're my life. Our relationship as parents-children may not be perfect as it is. But still at the end the day, we are able to sleep well and say "thank you God..we still have each other."
I can only wish I can make a tribute for them, but my brain is too little if i will have to compare it to what my heart feels. I just wanna say "thank you mama and papa for keeping us your children going..for keeping one's ordinary journey going."
