How's life been doing? been quite pissed off, why is blogger.com so difficult to sign in now? everytime I wanna update my blog..it takes thousands and thousand of seconds to sign in....not to say those countless 'refresh button'
However, this morning I came across one of my Friendster's friend's blog: Andina, from University of Indonesia. A theme on her blog has captured my interest, about 'just that one second'.
She told a story about her lecturer who was very nice, kind-hearted and liked by everyone. One day, this lecturer finally decided to quit teaching and focused on being the leader of Indonesian Media Committee (sorta like this lar..haha). Everyone was kinda sad by the thought of missing someone dearly to them. But, what shocked them most was when suddenly..just by that one second, they receive a news. Their dearly teacher got stroke, from toe up to his neck. Just by that one second,
when he was a healthy and strong person, and suddenly turned 'half-vegetable'. Life..you cannot predict!!
Another time, she was informed that two of her friends, a couple who went home on a motorbike, met with an accident. It was just in that mere second
. Rushing to the hospital, she couldnt help herself but to take her friend's hand into hers. They were never that close though, but the thought of missing someone has taken her aback. She doesn't want to lose anyone, not even a mere 'friend'.
And so she realized, how in that one second
, only that mere second
, life can change drastically. Therefore, appreciate what we have now
, because we may not have time to regret later..or maybe when you have, it's all too late...I don't want to feel that way, and nor I want you too...
so, just lemme tell you how precious you are for being part of my life
. Life is not always smooth, and thus I thank you for always be there for me
..regardless of what my mood is ^^'
So...a simple gift
for a special friend
I believe in angels,
The kind that heaven sends,
I am surrounded by angels,
But I call them friends.

A Friend's Greeting
I'd like to be the sort of friend that
you have been to me;
I'd like to be the help that
you've been always glad to be;
I'd like to mean as much to you
each minute of the day
As you have meant, old friend of mine,
to me along the way.
I'd like to do the big things and
the splendid things for you,
To brush the gray from out your skies
and leave them only blue;
I'd like to say the kindly things that
I so oft have heard,
And feel that I could rouse your soul
the way that mine you've stirred.
I'd like to give you back the joy
that you have given me,
Yet that were wishing you a need
I hope will never be;
I'd like to make you feel as rich as I,
who travel on
Undaunted in the darkest hours with you
to lean upon.
I'm wishing at this time that I
could but repay
A portion of the gladness that
you've strewn along my way;
And could I have one wish this year,
this only would it be:
I'd like to be the sort of friend
that you have been to me.
