The Silky Waterfall

It’s a routine of mine to visit several of my favourite blogs before I go to bed at night and last night I did just that. The last blog I visited was Mei Teng’s. Immediately, tears flowed down my cheek for I saw the most beautiful waterfall ever! 
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been a bit down lately. Maybe the sleepless nights, worries and all have finally caught up with me. I’ve been trying to hold myself together so hard to go through the most crucial time in my life as a mother the past couple of weeks, yesterday I finally broke down. 
The image of the Silky Waterfall captured by Mei Teng is extremely soothing I just wish I was there! Nevertheless, I shut down my PC and went to bed. 
In my sleep, I even dreamt of that waterfall. In my dream I was there, all alone. A feeling of calm and serenity overwhelms me. I was ready to leave everything behind and jump into the silky, inviting water. And just as I stood up on the rocks staring at the water, I realised that I can’t swim!
I woke up in cold sweat and immediately look at my side to find Ethan sleeping peacefully and felt a surge of relieve that I’m still here for him (Darling has been sleeping in the guest room for sometime now as I don’t want him to catch that dreaded virus too).
Life sucks – sometimes. Sometimes you are up and there are times when you are down. When they say nobody’s perfect, same applies to our lives. Nothing is perfect in this world. Appreciate the fact that we are here today and make the most out of it.
When you’ve decided to love somebody, love them to the fullest and never ever give up…

    Merryn, hope you cheer up ya! :) It's true that sometimes life can appear somewhat discouraging or even bleak. But there's always a light at the end of the tunnel. Not giving up and being positive is a good attitude.I was feeling a little under too last night. But thankfully after praying and having my quiet time (I am a Christian), I snapped out of it.
