I’m finally back here blogging again. A combination of laziness and busy-ness kept me away. Apart from the preparations for the move (which is a mind numbing-ly long list) , there was also the US trip in between. Much as we have been busy, I am excited too. Excited because of what lies ahead both for me as an individual and for us as a family. I can only pray that the experience will strenghten us and open new doors. Doors that we probably didn’t even know existed.
The little fella has been growing up really quickly. He now needs more ‘management’ as compared to before. The balance between firm-ness and nice-ness is still something I am working on. I really hope that with the shift, he will settle down well in a the new environment with the new teachers and friends and a whole new culture altogether. Can’t wait though to hear how differently he will sound after a couple of years there… think he will be really really cute. Sometimes I am torn between staying put here and moving Down Under. The little fella is at the age where he is intelligent enough to bond with his cousins, friends, uncles and aunties. And he really does love some of them. So part of me wonders whether this is the right time to move or not as he is just developing his social circle. But then the other part of me wonders if there will ever be a right time.
I really want to move but of course my thoughts are centred on how well the family will settle down there. New culture, new place to live in, new frens and new jobs. Is it something I will like? Faith like a mustard seed… shouldn’t be that hard to gather right? But sometimes… it eludes me. Just need to keep foccused and learn to trust. A hard to do but yet a must-do. Just have to remember that I have a lot to be thankful for.A supportive family, a very very nice boss and my job!
We have less than 3 weeks in Singapore and time is definitely going by really quickly. Guess must make the best use of time here before THE day.
