It has been an “eventful” December, with me bitten by nasty viruses twice. Once right at the beginning of the month, and then caught another horrible flu bug that Saturday right after Christmas. Time seems to fly while I am nursing my health. Now, we are heading towards the last day of the year.
I was chatting with Hubby just now, and we both agreed that the idea of 2015 has not sink in at all. We both feel so unready to welcome the new year.
2014 has been a year of “God’s plan” for me. I was back to work in the first quarter of the year. However, another episode of hospitalisation for little man prompted me to take no pay leave and suddenly become a Stay-At-Home-Mom. It turned out to be the best thing that ever happen to me and little man. No amount of salary can replace those precious nine months together with him. And the best part is, he never become very sick during this entire period with me at home. It was indeed a blessing in disguise.
I am really thankful for Lynn for coming into my life at that point when decisions need to be made. That conversation we had over the phone calmed me down and made me more determined to make becoming a SAHM happen. Through her, I also get to know other like-minded mummies and learn so much from them. Thank you, Lynn. I really appreciate everything.
In these nine months, I grew so much as a mother. Seeing how little man progresses together with me, is an amazing feeling. Never once did I feel guilty about not going to work, as compared to how I often felt guilty about not being able to be there for little man when I was working. It somehow reaffirms my decision on future childcare arrangement for possible newcomers.
Next year, 2015, perhaps will have much more uncertainty and changes. But I know (and pray hard) that everything will be in good hands and fall into place when the time is right.
May the new year be good to all of us, keeping us all safe and sound, happy and in pink of health. There is really nothing more I need to wish for.
Merry Christmas, and a very happy new year. 🙂
