When you are down… the only way to go is UP!

OK, so what happened this morning? I switched on my phone and already sms-es kept on pouring in. Calls started coming in. I am very grateful for all your concerns but I need to clarify one thing. I am not the ‘victim’ here. My friend is the one who is going through hell and I am down because try as I might, I am unable to help.

You know when you have a dear friend, regardless of gender, you’ll do all you can to make sure that your friend is alright. You’ll go the distance to make sure that you’ve exhaust everything within your power if only it can make a difference. But when you finally see that there is nothing more you can do, you just need to stop. And stop I did..

And I went to work. And I got an sms from this pretty Mommy telling me that she will be meeting me at my work place. She rushed all the way to give me this… My heart skipped a few beats when I opened the container and saw these…

She baked them and placed the note in there, just to cheer me up! Yeah.. go get your tissues, I know you must have tears forming in your eyes right now!

Of course Ethan was already pestering me to give him some but I told him to go home first because being a blogger, I must photograph them first before consuming :) He picked all the little sugar star decor and licked and eat them leaving the cakes behind for me. I tell you, the cupcakes are delicious. They are already gone… in our stomachs.

Thank you again Mommy Ling. Your ‘cuppies’ have certainly cheered up my day :)

    Haven't been keeping up with your blog for some time already. After reading your past blogposts related to this, all I can say is 'Cheer up! Sometimes have to learn to let go of things. Not everything is within our control. Accept this fact, and life will be happier' . Anyway, good to know you have supportive blogger friends! ^ ^
