Decided to have a quick al-fresco breakfast at the poolside, to enjoy some outdoor air & sun. Midway through looking down my phone scanning for news on Flipboard, I stopped. Instead, I looked up and enjoy the tranquil environment around me. I noticed the nicely manicured garden, the shimmering pool and take a deep breathe. Thank God for some sense to enjoy the present moment.
This is the eulogy I’ve written for my mum who went home to the Lord after a 14 months battle with cancer.
I got started to think of her.
I wish I can share my moments with her post voting for GE13, but I can’t.
So, in my head I talked to her :”Mummy, I’ve voted today, for the first time. I cared.”
And I imagine her proud contented smile, her hands stroking my hair.
