There are many fundamental yet important values in life that people likely to forget or simply take for granted these days. These values do not required high education background to understand it nor to be wealthy enough to own it. They are the simplest thoughts, most fundamental attitudes that even a child has it but it is easy to be forgotten as they grow, as the external influence gets stronger in their life.

As much as possible, I'd like to remind Charlotte and myself to be grateful, especially to people who helped us, guided us, advised us, coached us in one way or another. We thank God every night that we are so blessed in every way and help us not taking things or people for granted but learn to be grateful.

It was Mother's Day last week, every school and teacher put in their best and biggest effort to educate and teach our child to be grateful to their mother (parents). A friend of mine reminded me that it is Teacher's Day this week and we both planned something for the school/teachers as a token of appreciation.

A simple card is what I prepared, I explained to Charlotte the reason and the meaning of giving this card to her teachers and I asked Charlotte to write the word "I Love You" by herself. We do it because we want to remember and be grateful for what we have received from the school/teachers, not because we are hoping for more or better/special attention for Charlotte.

Happy Teachers Day!


  1. That's a nice card. And I totally agree with you that it is important that we instill the good values in the kiddies while they're still young. They are never too young to start.

  2. Did a Teacher's Day card too, together of course with Alex.

    The school also having a 'makan'. Hmm..not sure what to bring yet. Cakes?
