Woke up this morning still feeling a little low, decided to take a walk to the mall instead of taking the shuttle bus so I can talk to God and not be distracted. I didn’t really want to talk. I wanted to be a petulant child and be distracted. But I walked.
Been low for a few days and cannot always show it. And someone in the house is constantly cranky and probably thinks I’m adding to it. This is my birthday week and it’s coming up in a couple of days but as usual I’m dreading it. Special occasions for me are often ruined because some people don’t really make the extra effort to make it count for me. And yet every day I try to make it count for them but taken for granted.
I better pen this down as accountability. As I was praying and talking to God, enjoying His presence, it dawned upon me that January is coming to an end. What have I accomplished? How much time have I let gone to waste?Though I face my struggles, God wants me not to dwell on myself, not to have a pity party but bless someone every day. Be it keeping someone in prayer or a physical gift of blessing or helping someone out. I will intentionally be a blessing to someone every day.
Can I just say that I dislike 习字! When I was a kid (though I must warn you that I am a bit of a nerd), I used to take pride in writing lines whether for 习字 or penmanship exercises. I didn’t realise how challenging it can be for a P1 kid, my P1 kid. Take the “女” 字 for example. Have you realised that angle is important? And exactly where the 横 is placed is crucial because you have got to be able to see the sharp corner. A kept writing the 横 over the corner and it would appear totally different!
Rough night last night (though wasn’t the worst and has been rough many nights 😅) because baby kept waking up like a newborn or dare I say WORSE than a new born. I would put her down and she would start scratching her head and ears half and hour or an hour later, waking herself up. When I picked her up she would squirm and cry as though in pain and I would have to shake her as though to distract her from the discomfort and when she fell asleep I would put her back.
