What’s happening Temi asked as she saw her friend crying, I just heard a bad news,whats that Temi asked again, she screamed my husband is dead. Temi on hearing the news fell back to the chair as tears freely flowed down her cheeks. I’m finished Tobi shouted rolling down on the floor, who will play with me, who will I call my husband, who will I wake up to see by my side, who will be the father of my children? she asked unable to hold herself but there was no one to give her a definite answer.
Burial plans were arranged,and finally he was put to rest.Thinking about this, she wore a sad face hoping one day she would wake up her husband from his everlasting sleep.Sometimes talking to herself, acting strange, holding his pictures, remembering the times they spent together,looking at her two beautiful daughters they ask her Mom, when is dad coming back,she replied, your dad is coming back very soon, he travelled on a business trip.Okay, they said, we know he will buy us many things when he come back,surely she said, putting them to sleep.
Sometimes at one point or the other, we face challenges and even worse than this.We ask questions that we have no answer to. We live our lives in despair hoping on the rains of mercy to rain on us, feeling dejected, pushed against the wall, hurt when meant to be loved, lost someone dear to us or other woes befalling us, then we ask, Are we really meant to face this harsh side of life???
Life does not give us what we want neither does it give us what we wish for but it gives us what we make out of it.We may go through pains, difficult challenges that breaks us, tears us apart,
makes us feel lost but in all of it is our strength most revealed. This does not mean we won’t face these challenges but they make our inner strength stronger.
When we go through these, lets face it as those who have hope, as those who will come out of it, lets face it with vigor.Challenges does not break us but it makes us.For our shame, there is always a double portion of virtues displayed.
Despair not, worry not, fear not, should be our songs as we go through the trials of life.Failure creates room for success, downfall takes us upper, our backs being on the ground gives us hopes of standing tall, cries gives way for laughter.This should be on our lips always as we fight the war facing us each day.
SO LETS LIVE OUR LIVES KNOWING THERE IS A DOUBLE PORTION OF BLESSINGS UNTOLD!!!
