About Me

My photo
I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

I am blessed...

(The girls in the family)

I may never climb a mountain,
So I could see the world from there.
I may never ride the waves,
And taste the salty ocean air.
Or build a bridge,
That would last a hundred years.

But no matter where the road leads,
One thing is always clear,
I am blessed,
I am blessed,
from when I rise up in the morning,
'Till I lay my head to rest…

Cameron Highlands day trip...

“The thought of travelling should not restrict the travelling of thought...”
Strawberry Fields forever
Let me take you down
‘Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever
Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It's getting hard to be someone
But it all works out,
it doesn't matter much to me

Complete Rest in Bed...

"Nearly everyone has low back pain at some time during their life…"

I had my bout of lower back pain several times before but this time it was the worst. I can't even bend down to touch my knees! Even the slightest movements will send jolts of pain to my spines.

On Monday, Sara and I went to Dewi Sri Spa and had an hour of traditional massage. They said massage therapy is a great, non-invasive method of treating back pain as it increases circulation to the injured muscles. The same afternoon, we went to the clinic and doctor gave me loads of muscle relaxants and pain-killers and told me to rest.

I am now in complete rest in bed mode with cold and hot packs permanently stuck to my back. I guess my suffering is due in part to the aging process but also as a result of sedentary lifestyles with too little exercise.
