You win some, you lose some March 30, 2007

Sorry, I am not very good in being girly gushy – so anyway, this is what happened when I was whisked off to a beach getaway a few days ago:

 D. proposed in a most casual way with a custom-made ring – which was perfect for someone like me who cringes at sappy romantic stuff and the mass marketishness of wedding-related products.

I only hope I don’t lose this ring, which is what I did with my iPod nano, a birthday present from him the year before.

Sigh. It must have slipped off. In any case, these are material goods after all, and as much as I dig them, they are basically expendable. (But I will really TRY not to lose anything else!) What I should treasure and never absent-mindedly chuck aside – my life, my family, and this wonderful, Totoro-like man that God has placed beside me.
