It's raining, I got in touched with my missionary partner after 14 years, and it's my 3rd wedding anniversary!

Whew!  So much excitement.  I can't believe I've been married for three years!  You just never know when life brings you nice surprises and it's even better when you don't expect it at all.

Sometimes the internet can be a blessing or a curse.  Lately, it's been such a blessing for me.  Out of the blue, I got in touched with my missionary partner, Won Young, through a surprise incidence on Facebook.  When I called her, we were both surprised and we couldn't believe our ears.  When I hang up the phone, my heart was beating fast.

This past few days I had been trying to mentally retrace my steps.  What if I didn't marry and move here in England.  I've been feeling a bit lost. After experiencing a depressing winter, I suddenly realized that hot and sunny Thailand, my home for 6 years and 7mos before moving in the UK, was actually paradisical.

Life is full of discontent.  And it is this discontent that blinds my eyes to the beauty that surrounds me.  I always think that I want something better and that I'd be happier if I got this and that and so on and so forth.  Perhaps I need to change my paradigm.  I have to learn to make the best out of what I have got in my hands.  Then perhaps I will start to enjoy life in the real sense.

Happy for being married

Yes, I remember how sad and lonely I was in Thailand.  And I don't want to go back to being lonely again.  I have to make this decision.  It's only me who can get me out of my misery. So what are the things that I should be thankful for? Ah, let me count them one by one....
