Home Alone

Blog NO. - 60

It was a rare moment of togetherness, I touched her fingers and said, how I will manage myself without you?

This was not a final call from God's head quarters but a weekly out station visit . She explained me all things , showed me little things and said need not worry, I have arranged every thing.

On a day when I was all alone at home , a little chill passed thru my body and bones and I shuddered. How I will manage myself without her ?

She manages my every second not a big minute and not lousy one hour. The things she does, includes everything, every little thing, Morning tea, to clothes cladding in bathroom, to ironed pair for clinic , a look outside to confirm car is washed and cleaned. Takes away few bills to be paid and shows me a long list of household purchase , she will complete before I return home.

Lunch , afternoon breakfast and dinner are as usual ready. I just don't remember, when I last purchased for the home?

Who cleaned up my room and neatly prepared my bed and who helped my children to grow and grow till the day they were married? And how many social events , she attended in my absence due to social events , she attended in my absence due to my patients first policy. And of course, she asked money to run house but l never asked, do you want something?

I am at home alone, I am wishful thinker, I pray God to make me his first choice at his door but God is great and needs company of equally competent people and that's why I may enter heaven little later.
