I told my husband, “I need a rest. I am tired. Children need us. We want to go to your mum’s house” as reason why I don’t want to go China Square.

Life is a series of problem-solving situations. The success or failure of our lives depends on how effectively we meet and solve whatever problem lies before us. As some wise person once said, there are no simple problems after kindergarten.

Resolve to be kind in all circumstances
Refuse to give up despite all obstacles
Leave the past behind and move on
