Three weeks ago, my son Jonathan received a posting notice. He is being posted to HSBC Kota Kinabalu Branch in Sabah and required to report for duty on the 22/9/2008. He is leaving for Sabah on 20-9-2008. Sabah is not far ( 2 1/2-hour flight) but we will not see him home during weekends as it is now.
My wife and I are feeling a little bit sad and will be missing them. Right now every one is busy packing and no time to think of how we will miss one another.
As parents, we are tired and exhausted, physically and emotionally. But to the two young fellows, they are looking forward to their new life in Scotland and Sabah with enthusiasm and expectations.
Looking back at myself when I was at their age, young and energetic, life was beautiful then. Full of excitement and challenges, living each day with hope and zeal. They must be feeling the same now.
I pray to God to watch over them and protect them, guide them in their new phase of life away from home and parents. Mother Mary, our Mother, be with them always.
In prayer and in the Holy Eucharist, we are always in union as a family.
约三个星期前，儿子 Jonathan 接到公司调派通知，被派到沙巴亚庇分行工作。他将在九月二十号启程飞往亚庇，然后在九月二十二号到公司履新。亚庇并不是很远（两个半小时机程），但他不能如现在般的在周末回家了。
