I stopped blogging somewhere in the middle of 2014 because life simply got too hectic. That and typing on your iPad with 1 finger in the dark while waiting (& praying) for your child to fall asleep is quite tiring.
But I realised that I miss writing. So many thoughts in my head, viewpoints to bang out, stories to share, but they all got pushed behind the screen of Candy Crush and Frozen Freefall simply cos it’s easier to play a mindless game with 1 finger than to process thoughts that
sometimes often are not pleasant.
It’s been a challenging 2014, but I am thankful for many blessings that came with the trials.
1. I was involved in a car accident in February, but thankfully I was not injured except for some whiplash, and the other driver agreed that it was his fault, so the insurance claiming was straightforward
2. My niece nearly died from a mystery illness which saw her lie immobilized in the hospital for days and just as we thought we were losing her, God stepped in and miraculously healed her.
3. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. While it is an awful, debilitating disease with possible severe long-term effects, I am thankful amidst the chronic pain in my joints that at least there is a diagnosis and I am getting treatment.
There are more but obviously these are the more major ones and I think I will be blogging more about #3 on this blog this year.
I didn’t have many resolutions this NYE but one of them was to start blogging again. So here I am!
Whatever 2015 may bring, may we face it with truth, tenacity and thankfulness!
