This is part of my Life Tales which are true and I pen them down As I experience and feel them
Two Mothers Exactly Opposite Each Other – One is worried in happiness too and the other one is finding all the happiness in her huge worries of life.
Situation A –
I was working late in the night on an assignment. It was past 2 a.m. and suddenly my four years old daughter started crying horribly and started waking up my husband saying, “Pappa, pappa; where is my mumma”. I was working in the drawing room and rushed to the bedroom quickly and she hugged me tightly.
She was horribly scared and sweating and said, “Mumma, where did you go? Why did you leave me alone? I want you, I love you, I love you” and she fell asleep in my arms murmuring those “love you” words. I kept her like that and tears rolled down my cheeks as I prayed, don’t ever take me away from these two people in my life. I can’t even imagine my life without them. God, Please bless us with togetherness and happiness forever.
Situation B –
I was facing some joints and veins issues, so went to visit an Orthopedic doctor on a weekend. The clinic was too crowded and we had to wait for a very long time. There was a small boy playing in and around the clinic. And as per the behavior of the receptionist, I realized he was the doctor’s nephew. Such a notorious little man he was.
After some time the receptionist made a call and said, “Ma’am, please take Shivam home, he is troubling his uncle a lot and he is unable to attend his patients.” A beautiful looking lady arrived at the clinic after 15 minutes. She was a very attractive, slim, tall, dusky lady. She hurriedly went to the doctor’s cabin, picked up her son and rushed to her car parked outside the clinic.
And it was my turn to see the doctor. We went to his cabin. He welcomed us and greeted my daughter with a smile. Then he said, “I think we have met earlier, do I know this little lady?” I said yes, she was having pulled elbow issues when you had treated her around six months back.
He said “yes yes, now I recalled. These kids I tell you! You must have seen my nephew Shivam playing outside and just now his mom took him home.” I nodded my head. And he continued to say, “he had locked himself in the washroom today. I was in an operation at that time. My wife is expecting and his mom is unwell, both got so panicked. Somehow I could send my assistant there and got the door opened. I tell you these kids are horrible.”
I asked, “Oh, what happened to his mom”?
“His mom is not keeping well since long. Both her kidneys have failed and she is on dialysis. So the lady is preparing herself for everything.”
I asked him, “Preparing herself for everything, what do you mean doctor?”
He said – “Everything means every damn thing of life. She knows she cannot survive for long unless she gets a kidney transplant. She has lost 15-18 KGs in the last six months, And losing weight and life every day. So she sends her son to stay with us for weeks and weeks so that he will get used to us. She is preparing him to stay without her to save him from the trauma of staying without his mom after her death.
We have taken his responsibility as he is so dear to me. But we never thought of becoming his mother and father whereas his own mother is preparing herself so hard.”
I was shocked and terribly sad to hear that. Previous night my daughter panicked with a dream and I had tears with a thought of leaving her. And here this strong beautiful mama is going so strong. Nobody could know that she is ill and fighting a huge physical condition. Somebody like me would get envy of her beautiful figure, but she only knew that she is not healthy at all in that slim body. She has got that body after losing some pounds due to the illness. And this weight loss is not a happy one.
I am feeling terribly bad for them all. For her, for her son and for her husband too. They are preparing themselves to face the hard truth of life, knowingly and unknowingly. I just pray to God, that the lady finds some solution and gets a kidney transplant soon and gets a life back to spend with her son and the husband.
We two moms, She and I. Me, the one who is worried without any reason But she going strong despite having many reasons.
