CELEBRATING OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY (Part 9): Be Merry!

My heart was very devastated since my late brother and father passed away in two months.  My stress hasn't gone yet 100%. It will take the longer time for me to be released.  The children attendance during my difficult time was very helpful, especially they were with me watching the service via SKYPE from the beginning until the end before they brought my father's body to Keputih cemetery on Saturday night at 11 PM (Sunday afternoon at 11.00 WIB in Indonesia).   

Many thanks to all family members/relatives and all friends who have expressed their sympathy and sent their deepest condolence.  I felt not alone and your attention and words have comforted me.
From my Indonesian publisher, YKBK, Jakarta.
From YLSA, Solo, Jateng.
In this special time I also thank all for nice e-cards, cards and photo/picture of Christmas greetings sent to me and my family.  If I missed to send the reply, please, accept my apologize since my brain sometimes can't compromise during this stress time.  But life is on and it keeps on and on, so I have to stand up and continue my journey with the strength from Him.  (Although we have planned to visit Indonesia in summer 2014 and won't see my late father and brother physically, at least we can visit and see their places where they are resting in peace now)

And we wish you all A Merry Christmas and A Prosperous New Year--a splendid year filled with abundance joy, happiness, the best of health and wealth, all-wishes-granted and a special good vibe following your business and family.
 
Yes, be merry!  That was what I would like to bring and feel together when celebrating our 10th Anniversary.  But you may believe or not, in deep of my heart had a voice that something would happen.  It would be the opposite of "be merry".  Then I found out after my late brother passed away, that time was the beginning period he started feeling sick.  (I felt devastated right now when writing this).  If I knew it, I would call him but ... I even didn't follow my heart until he passed away, I even didn't cal him at all--till I got the message from facebook mentioned he had passed away (so fast--I even didn't get any message/know if he had been sick).  I felt my world turned upside down, I was shaken and didn't know what I was doing to do except I wanted to scream loudly and fly like eagle to Indonesia and was able to wake him up from death.....
 
Yes, be merry!  Now those words sing in my head all the time.  It reminds me they are in the happy place right now where there is no pain and sickness.  

Yes, be merry!  It was I hope when the Christmas came.  Yes, I was, because I had my whole family members with me at that time from Christmas eve till Christmas afternoon.
 

 


 


 

Yes, be merry . . . because of the blessing and the strength from HIM, we had celebrated our 10th Anniversary in the simple way and very memorable.(*)
