Thanksgiving

I woke my son up this morning, after a few calls out his name, he was still reluctant to budge, i knew i had to wake him up,if not he would be late for his basketball session with his friends. I resorted to lightly patted him on his thigh with my tower, then came his respond..............

With the disdainful and unhappy voice he shouted out, " Don't beat me lah" then i told him," Jovial, I've called you three times already, and i was concerned that you might be late for your game, that's all." Finally, with the uninviting look on his face, he hopped out of bed. Period.

This morning's scene with my son resonated in me how some period of my life I too was not thankful and appreciative of the good things i have, the good intention of the good Lord to change me into a better person, to lightly pat me to tell me if i did not wake up in time, i would miss out on the good things installed for me.

I too like my son, shouting out to HIM, " Lord, stop bugging me, let me enjoy a little bit more lah, stop telling me when to wake can or not?"

Today, I am thankful for HIS grace that has allowed me to fall but never hit my head so hard that i had to bleed, I am thankful for HIS love that my hands were once dislodged from HIS, but HE would still keep me in HIS loop.

"Give thanks to the Lord for He is good and His love endures forever"

Note : what can you be thankful for?

Have a great weekend and God Bless ya (感恩,bersyukul)

P/S : If i am thankful most of the times, nothing else really matters

  2. Christians say "Be thankful".
    Buddhists say "感恩".
    Muslims say "Bersyukurlah".
    All mean the same.

    Happy weekend to you and your family.

  10. This is a difficult time - puberty. Understand, let it pass at that point in time...and when there is a suitable opportunity, talk to him nicely about it - how it is no so nice to behave/react like that but how you can understand and do not love him any less because of that...and you will stay close or get even closer.

    If you scold him when he reacts in such a manner, a friction will result and he will start withdrawing and you two will grow further and further from each other.

    Children. Not easy to handle during the growing up years... If only they would stay forever as kids - not much problem then.
