You reap what you sow.

I had a chance to have lunch with Yen Ling yesterday before she leaves our company end of this month. Yen Ling is one of our Senior Departmental Director who has been working with us for nine years. She has been very helpful with me, especially when i was confronted with unsolved working problems. Most other working staffs would go by the rules and regulations, but Yen Ling has the skill to listen and later to understand, was prepared to help and to render assistance to those who needed her. I feel sad that she has to leave us for another better opportunity elsewhere.

Over our lunch i learned something very interesting from this intelligent lady. Though she is a career orientated person, she blended extremely well in her home environment. She is a loving wife to a Dutch husband and a fantastic caring mother to an only daughter. She was proud to show his handsome man and the beautiful darling girl through her mobile phone. Her daughter is called Kristen, only eleven but has the mind and heart of a much older girl. She is intelligence, smart, loving, kind, independence, fun, responsible and a hardworking girl that all parents would love.

I asked Yen Ling how she trains and grooms her daughter while she has to be busy with her corporate work. According to her, the best and ideal time to teach a child is when she is a baby. From the infant age until seven, the child would grow and absorb the qualities of life as given by the caring parents. If you shower her with love, she would be a loving person for life. If you have the patience and tolerance to guide her, she would be a patient lady for everyone. If you read and share your thought with her, she would learn to be smart and intelligence as well. If you are humble to her, she would be kind to the world. If you could joke and laugh with her, she would be a fun and humorous girl for her friends. If you are serious and never fail in your promises to her, she would be responsible in behaviour. If you could prove you are a hardworking mother, she would be hardworking and independent like you. You harvest what you sowed and this is the true fact of life.

Thank you Yen Ling. Though i might be too late to teach my children now, but i am sure your sharing could be benefiting for those who read my blog at the moment. Yen Ling i wish you best of luck in your next job. You are always a true good friend to me.

Food for thought - "The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow. Sow an act, and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny."

Hi Bro,

You must know that you reap good seeds.
People will remember you for all the good deeds and brotherly love that you share.

Hi Sister,

You are totally right. I always try to reap good seeds, otherwise i won't have known sister and brother over there from Brunei. They are intelligent people as far as i am concerned.
