It has been a very hectic week. To summarize, the wedding is a success (At least for me it is :) ). I deliberately am not going to post any picture on the wedding, since I think the best person to post it would be the man (DaPocket) himself.

So my last piece of advice would be to remember that to err is human. I’ll start the entry with a beautiful story on how we should treat this “err” in life.

There was a boy, about two years old. He had been trying to remove a bottle of milk from the refrigerator when he lost his grip on the slippery bottle and it fell, spilling its contents all over the kitchen floor—a veritable sea of milk!

When his mother came into the kitchen, instead of yelling at him, giving him a lecture, or punishing him, she said, “what a great and wonderful mess you have made! I have rarely seen such a huge puddle of milk. Well, the damage has already been done. Would you like to get down and play in the milk for a few minutes before we clean it up?”

Indeed, he did. After a few minutes, his mother said, “You know, whenever you make a mess like this, eventually you have to clean it up and restore everything to its proper order. So, how would you like to do that? We could use a sponge, a towel, or a mop. Which do you prefer?” He chose the sponge and together they cleaned up the spilled milk.

His mother then said, “You know, what we have here is a failed experiment in how to effectively carry a big milk bottle with two tiny hands. Let’s go out in the back yard and fill the bottle with water and see if you can discover a way to carry it without dropping it.” The little boy learned that if he grasped the bottle at the top near the lip with both hands, he
could carry it without dropping it. What a wonderful lesson!

Lesson learnt

  • Mistakes will happen.. There’s no need to be afraid of it, instead, be prepared and handle it maturely.
  • The same goes to marriage, there’s bound to be some mistakes from the both of  you. Instead of going the path of anger and hurtful words, learn from them, discuss them. Everything will be fine :)

    aRa – it’s good to be back. mmg penat, tapi time majlis tu berlangsung, langsung tak terasa lak tu, dah balik dari kg, tertido jugak dua tiga hari hehe

    anak2 tu mmg tak tahu apa2. sebab tu ibu bapa ni kena banyak bersabar. In 3 months insyaAllah I’ll become a father. Hope I can offer my son/daughter the best of me :)

    wilda – alhamdulillah… banyak org tolong, kalau harapkan sy sorg je, tak tersiap le semua :)
