Count your blessings

It was rather a sad news to read about the demise of a friends' mother due to bike accident. When I read about this in Buannel, at first I thought that the face was familiar and then read what was written about her. Then I thought, 'It can't be..then read on'. She lost her husband (one or two years back) and she was a cancer patient..five children. Still hoping that I heard wrong, I called up Jimmy and then Zonuna, whu confirmed the sad news. I felt so sorry for them and there was nothing a human being can do and felt depressed.

I was lost in my thought with lots of questions, "Why?" "Was the biker drunk? How could he hit a woman in a broad daylight?" "They needed their could this happen" but not a single answer.

Then I continue to think, "This could happen to anyone" and then said a silent prayer thanking God for taking care of the only parent I have now, my Mom and also prayed for her safety. The last time I saw my mother was on 4th Jan, 2008, the day before I leave for Delhi and now waiting for Christmas time so that I will go home to spen holiday with my family.

Always give thanks to our Lord for his blessings, thank him for giving us what we still have. Thank the Father up in heaven for having a mother or father who would scold you, disagree with you, grounded you, laugh with you..cos there might come a day when you suddenly realize how important parents are but too late to cherish every moment.
