Have You Ever?

First of all, I wanna shout “I HAVE A NEW HEADER PICs!” All thankx to Mummy Gwen :) Thank you, thank YOU and THANK you Yoke Lin. It meant so much to me :D See! I told you guys I found great friends through blogging ;)


Now back to my post today. Not my usual post… Today, all I have are questions…

Have you ever been in love – a love so great it is beyond marriage? A love made in heaven that (hopefully) won’t end up in hell?

I have (and still am) and for that, I’m grateful…

Do you get flushed by the warmth and comfort of your beloved, when words are sometimes not necessary. Actions are sometimes not required. Yet the simplest gesture of a sweet smile is all that is needed to bring hot flushes to your now smiling face?

I do and for that, I’m blessed.

Do you wake up happy knowing that the person you love is always there with you? Do you go to bed peacefully knowing that the person who loves you will greet you the next morning?

I do. To be able to wish him “Good morning” and “Good night” each day is something I treasure very much.

Have you ever, despite all the happiness – being suddenly hit by something so huge, so quick that you have no time to run for cover? It hit you right on target, crushes you into pieces so small… Have you ever got so sad that you are unable to shed not a single tear? So sad that you had to laugh yourself out of it? So sad that made you write nonsense…

What do you think? Have I?

    these are not nonsense.. this post was written by a sweet young girl, describing what she si feeling now, she lives a life that is not demanding, she just wants a simple life, she is feeling happy and contented… and i can imagine her eyes looking up and winking at the sky dreamily…. hmmmmm….

  • //

    I can feel you, lost submerryn. LOL…it happened to me too… too sad until cannot even cry. Nid to laugh only can trigger the damn tears!

  • //

    i'm sure most people have at least once. I did a few times.

  • //

    claire – You understands me. You are correct, except the last part.. I am not winking at the sky dreamily. I'm staring at it wondering….cleffairy – It takes one to understand another. Just as I can somewhat 'feel' what you are going thru, you knew I am lost.. and we only got to know each other less than wat? 2 weeks? I need a new compass :P or mebe a better periscope :D

  • //

    Sounds like you have some problem? :( Especially the final part?

  • //

    why so emo. dont care wat others say or do to you lo, as long as you have a happy family of your own, who cares about wat others say? its easier said than be done my good fren. err… am i hitting the right note here?

  • //

    You are welcome, Merryn. :D Glad that I managed to cheer you up a bit. You sounded very sweet and happy on the phone..didn't seem like you are sad. I really hope your blues will go away soon. *shoo them away*

  • //

    I'm not sure if you need a new periscope or a better compass, but I do know we both need a little break and bitch about whatever that's bothering us over ice cream. LOL..or whatever comfort foods lah.You know sth, Merryn? We both need to learn to accept that sometimes, submerryn does get lost deep in the ocean despite of those high tech radars and fairies are not always perfect fairy godmother who makes everyone's wishes come true with a wave of the wand.You are just a submerryn while me… I'm just a cranky fairy. LOL… we're just us and I wonder why people sometimes dun get it! *sends hugs over*Come up to the surface sometimes, okay, lost submerryn? Don't bury yourself too deep inside the ocean. You might sink before you know it.

  • //

    Love your new header! It's really nice.Merry Christmas, Merryn!! :)

  • //

    Whatever it is that is bugging you, do be thankful and be grateful with whatever that you have. Think of all the blessings you have – all those little small blessings that you don't even take note of! And then you will realise the truth – that your life is not so bad after all! I normally make a list of things I'm grateful for. It helps me immensely to put things in perspective : )

  • //

    Of course I have those feelings too, too scared and too sad and too worried till I'm numbed! I love your new header!
