A litter of darlings

**This is a long overdue post**

So, anyway. Socks delivered a litter of 9 puppies about 10 days ago. There are only 6 left, though. No guesses for what happened to the other 3.

As you can see, they're all still blind at the moment and dependent on their mummy. However, Mei's giving them away as soon as there are takers. She'll even throw in *drumrolls* a can of gourmet puppy food as a gesture of appreciation to any potential (as well as responsible) puppy owners. Good deal, no?

There are 2 baby girls and 3 little boys to give away (sorry folks, one's Kuantan-bound). They're learning how to walk now and are beginning to puppy-yelp. It's hard not to fall in love with such pretty babies *gets all starry eyed*.

Interested parties can either call me up or drop me an e-mail.

I was looking forward to go. But that didn't happen.
I was so excited about it. And he says, "The trip's off."
I was bitterly disappointed. I felt the familiar sting of hot tears in my eyes.
Right then, I hated the fact that I was right here.
The aftertaste of waning excitement was bitter.
Extremely bitter.

Send help. This way.

I would like to go and be part of their relief team. But I wouldn't be of help anyway.

However, if you can/would like to help out and be a part of their Acheh-bound troop (which leaves on the 27th of this month), do let the good people at KOMAS know.

*Christie, a paramedic whom I met for the first time a couple of days before she left for Acheh, has arrived safely at the base camp and is a member of the first troop that KOMAS had sent.

Driving home today, I took 5 minutes more than I usually do. I thought of the year that had gone, I thought of the year I'm about to begin. Looking back, so much has happened in the past year. So much laughter, yet so many tears. So much going on for me, yet so much heartache. I've made new friends, I've rediscovered the old. I'm a different person, yet still the same. I've been blessed with second chances, blessed with good friends. I've grown a little bit, yet I'm still struggling to maintain that level of childish naivete in me.

As I did a mental review of the past year, I decided that some things should go. Leave. To make room for the new ones. I decided to leave all my excess baggage behind, the ones that I had carried on my shoulders, the ones that had burdened my heart, the ones that had caused me to be bitter...Put simply, I needed to leave behind all the hurt in me.


A lesson on unforgiveness Posted by Hello

Unforgiveness to me, is scary as can be,
Trapped in a cage, just you and me,

Anger and hurt, they tear our souls apart,
Let us erase the hatred, and go back to the start,

I free myself, I free you as well,
Forward I move, in the past I shall not dwell,

We bury our sins, we wash them clean,
Fast forward it today, afresh we begin.

Ephesians 4:32 Instead, be kind to one another, forgiving each other, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
