The Rain In My Life

Weather is a great metaphor for life – sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad, and there’s nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.  ~Terri Guillemets

It’s been raining cats and dog since Friday night here in our part of the world. I did even brave the flood Friday night just get home and Saturday morning to accompany dear husband to the hospital for his daily dose of injection of antibiotics.

The past week has been full of emotion for the family. With DH getting sick and I being in charge of the household for everything makes me really feel so helpless and all.

I did take a leave from work for about three days from Monday to Wednesday to look after my family, with a sick husband and two kids who shouldn’t miss their classes. Preparing breakfast, tossing in between the dishes and laundry, cleaning our room and peeking online to catch up with some online assignments, I am glad I was able to pull it through!

Though I am now back to my usual daily schedule of going to work, I still have to balance my time to keep everything filled up. The little boy will be taking his service to school and I still have to send the little girl to school and see to it that everything is settled at home before I go to work.

DH has been feeling low about his health condition and so are we. Submitting himself for a medical treatment is the only way for him to get better and I am glad the he’s more than willing to do it this time. With all the pills, injections and daily visit to the hospital that we all have to bear. I am really hopeful that he gets better soon!

I am thankful to family and friends who extends their well wishes and care for Ian. For giving me the support and encouragement to hang on and be strong. For having our two beautiful kids as our inspiration to move on, staying strong to face the challenge.

Just like the weather, it maybe a gloomy and rainy season for us right now. But we are all looking forward to seeing the rainbow and Mr. Sun shining brightly towards us to enjoy our day!
