Semuanya untuk Nadi

Semuanya untuk Nadi
"Takdir kadang2 mempertemukan sesuatu tak diundang, menduga dalam bermacam ragam, memberi apa yang tidak dirancang..memaksa kita mengalirkan air mata kesedihan serta membuatkan kita rasa kehilangan. Namun takdir menerpa kita dengan erti perkenalan, menyulam erti kasih sayang, menanam erti persahabatan, menghadiahi kemanisan dalam kegembiraan, menusuk panahan sang ketabahan, menyemai benih keakraban, serta memberi peluang menilai siapa sahabat siapa kawan dan siapa sekadar kenalan yang mengisi ruang dalam episod kehidupan.."
