Sometimes we forget how we got where we are and the choices we made or paths we took to get there. I can reflect on the day that my path was carved out the right direction .
I took a chance to come to work in Bahrain military hospital in 1986.Any how it clicked.
After completing the training in UK for 9 years, I was offered jobs in King Faisal Hospital of Riyadh (with a fat salary) and BDF Hospital in Bahrain. I opted the latter with a much less salary. The silly reason was Alcohol was plenty in Bahrain! But God “blessed” me with a bad attack of Chicken pox in 1988 and a severe Gastritis, couldn’t even drink water for days…end of the alcohol days.
Life in Bahrain was fruitful in every ways. In my carrier, in my social and personal life. I’ve learned more valuable skills in my specialty too.

It was the long-awaited change of winter to spring in my life. In spring seeds sprout, flowers bloom, and the sun warms the earth, a time of regeneration, new beginnings, and a renewal of spirit.
The results were many, a deeper personal knowledge and commitment to our Blessed Lord ,a new meaning of all kinds of prayer, a new love of the scriptures, a new and deeper appreciation of the sacraments etc. It was new life all around.
