Not too long ago, I decided to pay my elder sister a visit. I didn’t tell her I was coming since I wanted it to be a surprise.
When I got to her home, I knocked on the door. Her younger son asked from within, “Who is there?”
I made my voice deep and spoke like a man, “Is that James?”
Last weekend, I had issues with the wiring in my bedroom. I needed an electrician, but when I searched through my phone for the number of the one who had worked on the flat when I first moved into it, I realised I no longer had it…
It was a mass wedding – and she was the youngest of the five brides.
When it was their turn, Lisa couldn’t help the blush that highlighted her cheeks as Zach looked at her, eyes filled with love, as he repeated after the minister, “To love and to hold, in sickness and in health…”
A few years ago, I had an unexpected upheaval in my life. I didn’t see it coming, and it blindsided me. It especially hurt and grieved me because it came from someone close. The individual apologized, but I couldn’t just bring myself to forgive.
Some days later, I went for a program – and the minister talked on forgiveness. There, in that program, I finally forgave and let go of the hurt. However, that situation made me take a decision I had been contemplating before the incidence – and that decision was going to involve a lot of money which I didn’t have at that time.
