On Dec 31, 2019, there was a dinner of one of the organisations that I am involved in. It was a countdown party. There were lots of games and entertainments, and a whole lot of fun. It was promised to be fun and enjoyable and night filled with so many companionships and good food.
I decided not to go. I knew some people might not be happy that I chose not to turn up. Hey, it was my decision to make.
Instead, I had a simple dinner of some fried fish and chickens and simple soup and rice at home. It was the kind of meal, I love, especially when with my family. On Dec 31, all I wanted was my family. I do not need other companionship.
I love to be with my family. I do not mean like be with them 24/7; I am not that clinging by the way. However, most of the times, if I were to choose dinner with friends or family, I would want my family.
You see, my family is not an essential thing in my life. It is everything.
