Rain Rain Go Away

It has been raining for the past 3 days!!!!! Its been gloomy, wet, moody, depressing and even making me sleepy all the time. Rain is not helping at all. Getting wet in the autumn season in Sydney, makes it shivery cold. Its cold and I have been wrapping myself with layers of clothes and feeling heavy walking around. The best thing is I can wear my boots that I love so much. I bought a year ago and I simply adore it. Worth the $25 that I spent on it. I should be getting another, as I just realised today that the soles are wearing out :-(

Being moody and gloomy, its not making me any productive either. I simply did not have the energy to conduct the classes this week although its the best tutorials that the students will have. Its an activity base tutorial on leadership. Even I find it intriguing but because of this wet weather, even the interesting activity like that has become awfully dim and not at all happy.

There was a bit of sunshine ray in the afternoon that allowed me to quickly head out to chemist to get a few needed stuff which I had been putting off as I hate getting wet in the rain especially when I have heaps of errands to run which constitutes walking outdoors. With this chilliness," nope-no-way-snap" I will be heading out to complete my errands.

I found this poem on the web :

Rain, rain, its always raining,
Rain, rain, I end up saying,
Rain, rain, please go away now,
Rain, rain, just leave right now,
Rain, rain, don’t know how,
I don’t care how,
To make my rainy day just go away… 

So rain,please stay away just for few days ...let the sunshine rays brighten up my days...

My Mother my Best Friend :-)

Your arms were always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood when I needed a friend. Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly. 
- Sarah Malin

I have been asked many a times, who is my best friend? It is always assumed (wrongly) that you need to choose one from your group of friends…No, not in my case. I beg to differ….To me, the best friend is someone who cares for you dearly, someone who puts themselves last when making a decision, someone who will truly give their life to save the other and most of all, someone who do not give a damn who you are, how you look , what you do for a living.

Someone who is ready to take over your burden, someone who holds you tight when you cry,someone who knows you are in trouble even when you are in silence, someone who does not get tired leading you and staying awake all night through when you are sick. I can keep going on and this list will never end.

And so, I always respond with pride, that my Best Friend is My Mother who I affectionately call Mommy Dearest. She is my role model, my confidant, my advisor, my joy, my love and most of all, a quite achiever. She says a lot with her hugs, kisses, and smile. I know I have not been the easiest child to be looked after but she endured everything with no complaints.

I know I have not done much in return but all I can say is Thank You for everything. Thank you for keeping me close to your heart. Thank you for not giving up on me even if I had many times. Thank you for sitting by me when I’m sick and making sure I feel better. Thank you for knowing when I’m down or in trouble and ask about it. Thank you for listening and being there for me. Thank you for putting me first before your needs. I miss you so much and the distance makes me yearn for u even more…

Love you mummy dearest, have a great day and you deserve the break cos u took on the world’s biggest hardworking, unpaid, no holiday job and carried it out immensely well.

Happy Mother's Day Mommy,
Hugs, Love and Kisses.
Your one and only daughter who is always proud of you :-)
