A Beautiful Journey

24th of October would bring some other more meaningful meaning to me after 2008. Other than being the same day of Pahang Sultan's birthday, the day that I graduated from my GIP Programme in Nielsen Malaysia..something more meaningful happen..
*****
My mom went home to be with the LORD, Yahweh Elohim
*****
My mom has been hospitalized for quite some time since she started to have constant fever which doctor mis-diagnose as menopause symptom. It was only about 6 weeks ago that doctors confirm she has liver cancer (unknown primary source). My family decided to take her home for palative careas we wanted her to enjoy what is remaining in her wonderful life.

I'm glad to say thaat mom did not lose her faith in this time of trials and suffeering, in fact, she was the one who encourages us not to compromise our faith in Christ in times of pain and loss ootherwise all our praise and prayers seem so fake for the years we profess our faith in the Lord who has, is and will always shadow our every step.

My mom's life is really a testimony for others and it is shown through the impact she has left in lifes throughout her 50 years of living; 26 years as a loving wife and mother. I was really encourage to see that her friends and church members from as far as Penang, KL and Singapore actually travelled to Kuantan to pay their last respect. She had students who are now working adults or parents to their own children coming to see her before her demise proves that my mom had impacted their life positively as an educator. (my mom is a primary school teacher)

As a mother, she has always been my comforter and counsellor especially in my love life. Always ready to listen when her children has something to discuss or just plain talk. Writing this sentence reminds me of the time when she would spend time talking to me as she marks her students' exercise book. Well, I don't think I could do much justice to such a selfless mother who puts her childrens first above all things.

For those who are reads my blog, you would realise that I seldom or never had written anything about my family because its not my nature to post anything related to my family. However, I have to make an exception in this time as I feel strongly to share what this wonderful women I call 'MOTHER' has done to impact not just my family but to those around her.

Below is some pictures to commemorate her return to home in heaven, where angels sing and Christ awaits at the thrown to award my mom her prize for finishing the good race on Earth.

That's me giving some testimony about my dearest mom. Can't control my tears, so my dad needed to console me
*****

My mom's going home to heaven was a peaceful journey. What I want to say the most is treat your love ones well and cherish all the moments you have with them (for bad or for worst) because trust me, you will start thinking of even the bad memories which turn out to be so sweet in fact. Love your dad and mom people and love all those around you.
