I was moved by seeing my daughter's story she presented us on our Marriage 25th Anniversary today the 16th Nov 2012.
I am sharing her story with you in my blog....
A small story or a one-shot about me and my life with my parents~
WARNING! INCLUDES FANTASY, NOTHING FROM REAL LIFE, WELL, THIS USED TO BE MY FANTASY AND THE FEELINGS I FELT WERE REAL SO NO COMPLAINTS…>W<
Paradise always lies where you are
“This is paradise!” it really was… this was the home for all kids that yet have to be born, I was one amongst those who have a lot of time left until they are born, in that mean time, we used to play hide and seek, play with alchemy and magic, and all sorts of stuff. I loved that place. It was really fun, we could do whatever we want, have how much food we want, and it was paradise.
But… that one day… God called for me… and he told it’s time to leave and go to earth… I was literally shocked when he said me so… “b-b-but, there is no other place like paradise! I love being here!” “…” he didn’t say anything… “I don’t want to leave! Its boring to be born there!!” he spoke up “my child… you will have more fun there… I promise…” I didn’t want to leave and so I urged him even more… “I don’t want to!!” “I promised didn’t I? you will love being there instead of here… so much you don’t want to leave earth…” I looked up to him in disagreement, I wondered if he was even telling the truth… heck! What am I thinking!? He will always say the truth no matter what! “Promise?” I showed my pinky finger to him as he was a bit surprised but later,
He let out a chuckle as he wrapped his pinky finger around mine… “Promise” he had a warm smile on as he escorted me out of paradise… we went through the world of sinners which is called ‘Hell’, I heard it from my friends, they told me it was really scary there, but it was much more scary seeing it myself… my next stop… earth… before I dropped down… God said that… “The couple you’re seeing down there… it has already been 12 ½ years after marriage…” “Whoa! That’s a long time! Didn’t they have any kids…?” I regretted it when I asked that question because his answer was… “No… 2 failed attempts already…” “…” silence… that was it… decision made… I felt really sad for them… I wonder if it was any other kid, will they take care of them…? Well I would absolutely… “So, isn’t it the time for you to be going now..?” he shot at me with a heartwarming smile as I just nodded my head to his question… before I dropped down into earth, God told me… “I wanted you to be their child as you would help them through any problem… but… that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t cross any problems yourself… you should choose your paths wisely my child… and learn with every mistake… do you understand?” I was hesitant at giving my answer… “…….” I couldn’t open my mouth… the words ‘yes I understand’ didn’t come out… as if they were stuck in my throat…I wasn’t scared… but something sent chills up my spine… “My child…?” I jerked and tried to stay calm but failed miserably… “Yes…I understand…” he gave a warm smile… “good, I was worried, now best of luck!” before I went down to earth I looked back at him and smiled… that was the last time I saw him… waving back at me as I left… “I’m going to face a lot of troubles huh..?” that’s when I saw my parents… they were so happy to see me… and me… I thought I felt a tingle in my heart as if…
I was blessed with one of the best parents in the world… “A-a-a-a-a-abbu!” my father was overjoyed when I called his name… “a-a-a-a-ammi!” my mom… was overjoyed as well… and me…? Heh… just like any other baby… I was totally clueless and so innocent… I did face many hurdles on my way here on earth… living here is kind of hard, but I have learned it’s better to face than to run away… that… which I have learned from my dad… and “be nice to people and they will be nice to you”… which I have learned from my mom… I am really blessed with a strong, filled with pride, confident father and a sweet, cute, kind mother… and what am I? a mix of both the personalities… “Come on suru! Your bus is waiting for you!” a call from my dad… “Okay! I’m going down! Bye abbu! Bye ammi!” I head down to my bus… “Gosh! That driver tells he comes early but makes me wait at least 10 mins!” I thought to myself… today, I look back to how I was before… what god said affected me then… but now I can bravely say… “I can face whatever hurdles come in my way!” that’s right… and… I can also say… “Dear past self, you were dearly mistaken when you said you weren’t going to have any fun here on earth… earth is a billion times more fun than paradise… because… with my parents here… with how they have blessed me… I’m really happy…” I look up and smile at the sky because I know god is watching… “… Promise fulfilled” thank you… for blessing me with my parents… I don’t know how to thank you… and… I have learned and experienced from god… “Paradise lies where your parents are…” heh… absolutely right… “Paradise always lies where you are”
