SURVIVING YEAR BY YEAR

Another year is ending soon and a new one takes over! We have survived another year by grace as our time on earth is not taken away. On hindsight, as we look back the pages of our life, we realize that it is indeed a miracle that we are still kicking around.

Just the week before, I lost a good friend at Serangoon He was 83 years old. We met each other almost every evening over Chinese chess and coffee. Now he is laid to rest. All the other chess players miss him. Though he was suffering from weakness, his family was very supportive of him. His sons and wife took turns to bring him down to our ‘chess club’ so that he could spend the evening with us. It was his only joy and he looked forward each evening just to meet old friends like us. With us he didn’t appear to be suffering from dementia. He could recollect some of the common jokes and incidence which we used to laugh at! Well, all of us feel the loss. The group now is minus one. The question is….. who is next?

When we are given another year to live our lives, we have to really make good use of the time left! The best method is to settle all our unfinished business first. Solve all our personal problems being they financial, spiritual or others especially relationship problems. Once all these all settled, we will be able to enjoy every moment of our existence! There are no worries. Nothing to fear about. This is the best time and period where we live life free and easy with no baggage or luggage!

WHEN ALIVE, LIVE THE DAY FULLY. WE MAY NEVER HAVE ANOTHER DAY OR MOMENT TO LIVE!
