Taking charge

After 8 long years, she called on monday. A delightful surprise, taking the call as I stepped into the elavator. Born into a wealthy family. Spent secondary one sitting beside her. Thick black rimmed spectacles and the bob hair. Merticulous with her words and work. At the beginning of secondary 2 she was sent off to a boarding school in sherborne. For the next 5 to 6 years we met yearly on home coming. After a degree and 3 years of working in London, she chose Singapore as home base. An accountant by training. Always in control always very sure. The independant her, next made the right contacts and attended the appropriate function to look for her life partner. After much sensible selection, she got married. She took care of the wedding details to the acquisition of the new apartment. 2 years into the marriage, she decided. Visited the gynaecologist. Two failed attempt and her mind was set. Adopted a daughter. Love and Joy filled her home. Adopted another two years later.
Stopped working recently. A lovely house for the children, she now wants to spent more time with them. Learning should be fun and and enthusiatic so it's International school for them. She is alway in charge of her life. If only I'm as in charge of mine as she is of hers.

She is so positive in life.

Betul pendapat anda. Asalkan dapat memikmati kemesraan keluarga itu sahaja yang penting.
