Love Is The Greatest Thing

Last 11th May 2010, genap 4 years we were here. Living here gave me a lot of new insights. But the thing that keep me alive and happy here for the past 4 years is the opportunity to see these 2 kiddos growing up. 

I remembered during the day we were here, Izz was only 3 months old and I am still an inexperience mother. Though it's quite hard for me to adjust with the new life, but I survived. At that time I was screaming for freedom. Freedom - such as time for myself, driving a car to the place that I want to go like in KL, a peaceful and quiet dinner time with hubby, etc. But non of that could happen because I have a baby which need my 24x7 attentions
Sometimes I thought the best thing I would want to have that time is freedom. But then I realize that the greatest thing we have in the world is love, and love always keeps away a little of your freedom. When you are a mother and have children you must to wake a few times in the middle of the night just to feed them, later, you must teach them to be a good boy, etc. When you loves someone you are letting aside freedom. 
Well now here we are going through again the 5th summer time in United Arab Emirates with these 2 toddlers whom always happy to escort us wherever we go. We are now too comfortable with that and would feel empty without them. Their antics make us smiling and laughing through any kind of situation of the day even during this HOT summer time! =)
