Fact – Daily Prompt


We’re nearly there and we have to keep going
Praise the Lord for managing to continue
Look, I could see a glint of assurance at the end
The overgrown garden with herbs is my witness
Hush, don’t feel guilty for not doing other things
As the leaves sway with the winds, be happy
Our sense of woe slowly disappearing
We are compelled to continue until the end
To give us some sort of satisfaction and hope

Sacrifice for me is giving up something for the sake of other considerations. I’d say I’ve sacrificed my career for the sake of my family. I’ve got a degree in Chemistry in the Philippines but I deliberately not continue in this line when we moved to Germany. Him Indoors has got a good job and I thought I’d give him all the support he needs to succeed in his career. And when HRH the son was born two years later, I decided to look after him full time for the first ten years of his life. Thus, I concentrated on being a good wife and a mother. I enjoyed my role, actually. I didn’t really think of it as a sacrifice, instead just gave them the top priority of my life. In fact, it was the best decision of my life. When HRH the son was ten, I started thinking of slowly going back to work. I did some training, carried on with my education and now treats my job as my hobby. I love my life! Have a lovely day everyone!
