Recently , i had happened to watch the movie “The chronicles of Narnia : voyage of the dawn treader”. A quote from the movie rocked me to core and made me to realize how gifted am i. In that movie king Caspian will say , ” I always regret about what was taken from me instead of focusing on what has been given”. In my case, I have always regretted about what was taken from me – my mom. It’s been 12 years she died , since then many times I have grieved, ‘Why me’, Why god took my mom from me. I used to think my life would have been better if my mom is around , I miss her badly and cry. I often feel like a unlucky soul but not anymore. I never thanked god for what he has given to me. 1) caring and loving hubby – been there in my tough times and helped me to stood up whenever I felt low. 2) Adorable sister – A person I can count on my difficult times. we both need each other. 3) Wonderful friends – they are my saviors whom I can rely on anytime.
It doesn’t mean that my hubby or sister or friends can replace my mom. I will always miss her. But I will not feel like a cursed or unlucky person. God has taken my mom but given me an adorable hubby and caring friends. 🙂 Of course there had been hard times with my hubby, sister & friends but people come as a package. They are always bundled with positive and negative qualities. I am learning to cherish their positive side :).
