FAMILY NEWS: SMS Last Night

This morning I woke up early and could not sleep. Around 30 minutes I just tried to go back to sleep but still, I could not. I stood up and grabbed my HP. There was a message from my brother in Indonesia. I was shock. His message said one of our cousins passed away because of heart attack yesterday night and this morning his family had burried him.

I almost didn't believe it. Last Saturday he just replied my message via FB, told me that he and his family would visit his hometown to celebrate Eid and he was happy informing me that his oldest son has been accepted at one of the most famous institutes in Indonesia: ITB Bandung.

Life is very short, isn't it? And we really don't know when HE would bring us to HIM, anytime and anywhere. Are we ready? Probably this will be more important for the family who have been left. We live in this world not only for ourselves but for our family, too. Every action we make should reflect to them. We can bring bad and good for our family, it depends of what we have done. So, have we done the best thing to our family?
I think now is my family turn to need and see what we are going to face in the future. I just have a HOPE from HIM who gives me a life, and I may ask HIM to give the most of what my family need; health and wisdom. Amen.

Now, I really would like to remember him, my cousin, Wawan Setiawan who has passed away in his age 45 years old, leaves his beautiful wife with 4 sons. He sent this picture last year when he found me via Facebook.

May his family get comfort and strength during this hard time. I am sad. He was a very good man, friendly and loved his family.

I think I should not sink in this sadness but I have other things that need to be brought in prayer, my husband, my children, and me. What a future will be like, I don't know. But one thing I believe, we should learn from every moment that has been happened in our life. Remember, LIFE IS VERY SHORT!!! DO THE BEST THING IN YOUR LIFE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY!!!
