Forget the past, challenge the present.

Four ago when I first known Nor Elizabeth, she was a very sad lady. Her husband left her for another woman. She was at her early twenties then. Without financial support and without any working experience, together with her two years old son, she returned to her own mother's house. Sorrowful though but with love from her family and encouragement from all of us, she managed to get a new found job as a restaurant supervisor in town. As I am also her life insurance agent, we met quite very often. I used to enlighten her with knowledge and taught her to understand the aspects of life. Within a short period of time, she was promoted to be the manageress of two outlets.

Time passes by rapidly when I had not seen Nor for almost six months. Last week I was surprised, when she called to invite me to her new business premises. Upon reaching this new address in a very elite commercial location, I saw this attractive Arabic restaurant, Laziz - Journey to Authentic Middle Eastern Cuisine. She was so glad to see me around. I could see the sparkle in her both eyes. Yes! Nor is no longer working for someone. In fact she is half owner of this beautifully done restaurant. Her face tells me she is in love. From her mouth, she related that she has found a new lover who is the co owner of their shop. With love in her heart plus the passion in food business, I am sure she would do well. The last four years were not easy for Nor, when there was no love in her heart. Now that her heart is full of love, her hopes and dreams are all in place again. Nor, I am equally happy for you, as you are brave to forget the past and willing to take the challenges against the present. Congratulation!
