Life As It Is…

THERE I was waiting for the traffic light to turn green so I can proceed to enter the exit to the highway. The road was still wet after heavy downpour earlier in the morning. Beside my car there was a couple. Younger than me for sure. Riding on motorbike. The father, behind him was the curious and happy face of a young boy and squeezed between hima nd the mother is his baby sister I guess. The baby looks so adorable looking around wrapped in blanket. Clutched strongly by the mother.

From their direction I guess they were heading toward the government clinic which is just around the corner…

Later …just an hour later…on Jalan Tun Razak I saw a motorcyclist was laying in pain on the roadside with a driver of a BMW getting out of his car to check on the man on the road. I assumed could some accident involving both of them…and I was thinking about the motorcyclist family at home…Will they be okay with the guy injured like that and by the look of it…he  might be hospitalised for at least several days and would be unable to work… I hope his family and he will be okay…

All this that caught my attention in my daily commute to office made me realised how blessed I am. At my age I am relatively healthy, having a good job, family who loves me.. a son that any parent would dream of having… And I have him as my son… What else a mother could possibly hope for… Apart from thanking God for all that I have in my life…

It reminds me of Adam’s early days when I couldn’t afford a car then. We would visit the doctor at nearby town by riding a pillion with my brother Azim… It was 18 years ago. Seemed like a lifetime…It is! A lifetime…

Thank God, life has been merciful to us since then…Not much different in huge ways but a lot easier with lot of rooms to breath and to laugh together…

There was a baby who is now a young man…How many things have changes since then…

I was writing an email to someone this morning when it dawned upon me that in my life I have a young man who is as wholesome as any mother would love to have.

We had phone conversation a lot lately especially when I had late night shift. Our ‘good night sayang’ and ‘I love you sayang..’ routines turned into into that heartfelt conversation. Mainly due to me unloaded my chest on certain silly things that annoyed me. And how I have noticed the way he reacted to it. How he have his way to calm me down regardless…

The way he would laugh at my silliness and agreed how silly I was at particular situations… how he  is unshakeable in things he believes in…continues to amaze me that he is indeed God’s biggest blessing in my life… A
