One and a Half Week After
Ahh... spring is finally here. It's beautiful out: the sun is bright in the clear blue sky with a good spring breeze as they rustle through the leaves of every tree, and through every blade of grass and weeds on the ground. The good old dandelions are out as well. I haven't seen as many pussy willows this year or the past year... but I must admit that of all weeds, they are indeed the ones I enjoy most.
I've returned to work post op, and it's been a long week and a half but fortunately from home. Of all things in life, with age I have come to appreciate good and kind people. It's not easy to work with the need to elevate my leg to prevent and stop the pain from continuing, but that in the grand scheme of things is minor in life. Elevating the leg above the heart is indeed a task and not the most comfortable position. At this juncture, I will do all that it takes to recover speedily and strongly.
From this experience and having been through a rough few years, I have come to appreciate my bosses for the past couple of years. Fortunately, God has blessed me with great bosses. While monetary is a necessity, but having flexibility is so rare in our society today. Working for them makes me understand and learnt to be ever so grateful for my life and job. More importantly enjoy what I do and begins to fill my life with passion. Often times we take things and people around us for granted, even stop making efforts to those we care for. Life is fast, short and on a one way forward track: stop and cease the moment - carpe diem!
My father was great with that, and I am ever so fortunate to have him as my father. Every day he showed me that we were his everything. All his energy devoted to us through cooking, helping us get around and much much much more than I can list here. He was always completely selfless. Remorsefully, I didn't show him enough of my appreciation and could have done more for him. After all, a selfless soul is extremely rare to find these days if not impossible. When he was around, everything was so easy and simple. After his passing, I began to see that all this easiness and simplicity was due to his own sacrifices and endless giving. Daddy stood such a tall man and never towering over or hovering over anyone, that's how I saw him. How proud I am to be his daughter. And that's exactly how I will remember him, he is my role model.
That was beautiful
