Sad Wednesday ..

On Wednesday this week, i received an SMS from Mr Khoo. He is the Malaysian author who beside writting management books, he is also into novels.. Taikor, Mamasan and Nanyang (pls check my book reviews).

His wife passed on that morning. After a few months of fighting off cancer. I was surprise of the news because last info i had from Mr Khoo was on Friday last (14.12.)....she was recovering well.

But sometimes the good Lord has his plans which we may never understand. I was worry and concern, so i sent him an email (not sure if he would reply) on Wednesday afternoon. He did replied and ....never easy no matter how strong we have faith in the good Lord, we are still humans.

I reply his email by stating that she is no longer in pain and is in a better place and he now has an angel looking over him. Mourn for her now but i am sure she will not want her to feel that way for ever.

He has to continue to write and teach people abt Sun Tzu Art of War..

I am really not good in this kind of thing, what would you say to a person who just suffered a lost?

This morning received his email....and i am happy to note that he is doing fine and has full trust in the good Lord...it is not going to be easy but i am sure he will be fine.

Here is an excerpt of the email.

To conclude, please don't worry about me. Though I still have mood swings, and may at times, burst into tears since all kinds of everything reminds me of her, I believe God has and will continue to give me the strength to pull through this trying period so that I can go on to do what He has in mind for me to do until He summons me home to His side. The same goes for Bandit too (pet dog).


NOTE: May all of you have a Merry Happy Christmas and Holidays with you love ones..and do tell them how much you love them.

For those of you ...who "balik kampung" please drive safely and carefully.

Take care and God bless always.

I'm sorry to hear the news. Mr Khoo will miss her very much, but I'm sure he feels that at last she has been released of her pain from cancer.

May she rest in peace.

Nightwing said...

Helo Puteri,

Ya, at least no more suffering from cancer and she is in a good place.

Thanks for dropping by.
