good thing to share with..

Dear luvly mommies..
take time to read thru the story..
I'm sure we will stop and think for a while..

**********************************************

When things in your life seem,
Almost too much to handle,
When 24 Hours in a day is not enough,
Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class

And had some items in front of him.
When the class began, wordlessly,
He picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar
And proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students, if the jar was full.
They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured
them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again
If the jar was full... They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand

And poured it into the jar.. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded
With an unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced Two cups of coffee from under the table
And poured the entire contents Into the jar, effectively
Filling the empty space between the sand.
The students laughed.

'Now,' said the professor, As the laughter subsided,
'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life..
The golf balls are the important things - God, family,
children, health, friends, and favorite passions –

Things that if everything else was lost

And only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter Like your job, house, and car.

The sand is everything else --
The small stuff.

'If you put the sand into the jar first,' He continued,
'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life..

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff,
You will never have room for the things that are
Important to you.

So...

Pay attention to the things That are critical to your happiness.
Playwith your children.
Take time to get medical checkups.
Take your partner out to dinner.

There will always be time
To clean the house and fix the disposal.

'Take care of the golf balls first --
The things that really matter..
Set your priorities.. The rest is just sand.'

One of the students raised her hand
And inquired what the coffee represented.

The professor smiled.
'I'm glad you asked'.

It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,
there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.'

*****************************************

with the workload at office,
balik dah exhausted..
sumtime we tend to forget that our kid need that precious time with us..
sumtime I wish that Adam will go the sleep earlier,
so that I can do all the housework easily..I was totally wrong!
we just spend our weekend to play with him..
then I start to think again..
kita dah 8hrs hntr dia wit babysitter,just spend 1 precious hour playing with him..
he will surely appreciate it..

Yesterday when I read Utusan, the story about missing Ferris and also bdak yg lemas banjir tu, I feel so touched..
cannot imagine if all those things happen to me..
and my mind immediately teringatkan about my 2 close frens at Flex..
so called my close frens when everyday tu lah teman I pergi bfast n lunch since our dept tak ramai gals..
these 2 wonderful mommies( which is at my age),passed away In June and October this year..
I feel so sad when imagined about their small kids, who will growing up without their lovely mother by their sides..
imagine..their smallest baby was at age of Adam (1 year+) and another one just 1 month old when she passed away..
Al-fatihah..

So gals..even how important our career is,bunches of workloads..
remember that our family is super important..
plus take care of ourselves.."imagine kalau kita sakit, camane nak jaga our lil precious.."..thats what my hubby always said to me..
not only write this to all of my lovely mommies, I strongly remind me also to "pay attention to the things that critical to the happiness..."

till then...

while Nanie is my operator..
think u always saw me with her evrytime pergi surau..her story more tragic,infact till now i still cannot accept for wat had happened to her..bkan nak reveal aib or ape..just to share..
sumtime we tend to forget..
dia mangsa dera by her husband(so called"")..
time org jumpe dia dah lemah kat rumah with the kids around her yg dah berapa hari kut tak makan..and during that time, she just after delv a prematured (6mnths delv)bb which still at hosp when she passed away..I was collapsed when i visited her ..dia koma time tu..
she left 4 kids and now with her mother..
..even we always get togehther,she never told me her prob,thats what i really regretted..cannot help her when she really need sumone to help..

Semoga Allah mencucuri rahmat ke atas roh mereka..

p/s they all my cfu when i got preggy..teach me all the pantang2..I missed them very much..

Nadia,
Sedih sangat bila Nuurill baca about them. I cried and cried. Puas Nuurill recall their faces. Semoga roh-roh mereka dicucuri rahmat.
What had happened to Nani, if i were Nadia, Nuurill pun mesti rasa benda yang sama. How respect Nuurill dekat Arwah since, she never told everyone her problem. Nadia jangan regret ek, Nuurill yakin sangat, arwah was a very strong and tabah person orangnya. Marilah kita sana-sama doakan, rohnya tenang di sana.

p/s: nuurill still crying.. terbayang wajah-wajah anak2 kecil tu, cemana di saat-saat akhir, diorang keliling their mother and cried.. lapar, takut, few days. Ya Allah...kesiannya.

And now,how the kids of our 2 wonderful mummies survive without their mothers.... huhu

maniscinta said...

Teringat time awak citer dulu lagi sedehh...

Al-fatihah to both of them...

MOMMY NADIA said...
