Always

Today I went out with Abel and Adrian and forgot about the dinner I had at home. Also forgot to about the phone call I should make to my mum to let her know I'd be back late. Also turns out that my mobile chose to run out of juice on me.

So I ended up with 15 miss calls and a lot of smses from the family.

I was very touched. I went home and found my mum sleeping on the couch waiting for me, ready to smack my head silly. It reminded me of the time I went to Indonesia unannounced and was gone for a good week.

The lesson learnt?

There is always someone thinking of you, no matter how lonely you are, or how down in the dumps you feel... Just close your eyes and ask yourself who.

Don't make them think about you in vain, for it is the worst feeling in the world to anticipate and not receive. I've been guilty of not realizing, and am also the recipient of such treatment at times, and both ways it's not funny.

So let us close our eyes and visualize the faces of the people who would be thinking of us now. Take those faces, and place them in a nice place in our hearts, for we know that we are in theirs.
