Awesome Privilege!

Hey usual, Tr. Fiona misses you all lots! Am sure you all miss me & my nonsense too right? Haha! :)Thank you for sharing your lives with me & being part of mine. Thank you for giving me the awesome privilege & honour to serve, teach & guide you.
Oh well, we may not have finished toilet training for some of you, the food still spills whenever you eat or drink, the tantrums still escalates into an almost full-blown WW3....but all these doesn't matter....

What matters most is that you all have your own beautiful ways...

Some of you in ways that are obvious....

  • Like life-saving weight gain thanks to 6 months of nasal tube-feeling.
  • Being able to look into the camera & give me good eye contact when I make you pose with me for pictures (knowing me la!).
  • Being able to 'take', 'give' & 'release", when we practise fine motor skills.
  • And being able to smile & nod at me when I ask are you happy even though no speech leaves your mouth.
More importantly, when Tr. Fiona's daddy has gone to be with Jesus in heaven, you all gave me a reason to smile, put on a brave front, grit my teeth & take small steps to try to move on despite the broken pieces left behind....

It seems b'coz of what you all have gone thru yourselves, you all understand my pain, my sorrow, the unspoken feelings, the turmoil , struggles & confusion I was going thru on the inside that can't be expressed....sometimes, even the tears are not enough.....

This Christmas, I'd like to take this opportunity to give a great big hug to all of you for helping me grow into the person I am today. B'coz of you all, God has used you all to mould me, my character & shaped my values not only as a SPED teacher but also as a person in life's journey on earth.

You all know I still love you all lots & each & everyone of you have a special place in my heart forever.

I look forward to seeing you all once more when school re-opens soon.

For those of you who, like my daddy, have gone on to be with Jesus in heaven, I look forward to the day I see you there too. Just that you might have to wait a while for's with my daddy on my behalf coz he knows you all too in my many conversations I had with him concerning you all.....

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." (John 3: 16)

Brokenhearted :(

Unappreciated? Trampled? Hurt esp. by those closest to you & those you hold dear...the words hurled at you cuts deep right into the core of your heart....bleeding but no one sees & can do abt painful it feels as if I can't go on anymore coz I can hardly breathe.....

Makes me wonder whether I've done anything wrong or is it worth it going all the way out in the 1st place! *sigh*

But you know what? I take comfort coz the LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18).

More importantly & of greatest comfort to me,
He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds. (Psalm 147: 3)

No one can heal those emotional wounds except Jesus! Amen?

Yups! Whine whine abit, feel abit sorry for myself, then shake off the dust, pick myself up & move on! Am not giving up! No way Lord! :)
