One day I was talking to an old friend and she said: I would like to tell you a story.
I said: go ahead!
I was six years old and I’m the oldest of my siblings.
I did not have the life that everyone or the majority dreaming of it, which is to live in the most luxurious residential neighborhood and a big house, or to have that pink room that’s every girl wants and to be in luxury and lack nothing.
But I always say that I will have a better life in the future.
I will be a strong and independent woman.
I had a dream of becoming a “doctor”
I think it was every kid’s dream at the time.
But what always happens is that we do not thank God for His gifts, no matter how big or small.
What do we say it is “human instinct”.
I used to live in that neighborhood and in a simple one-room house, we rarely see “my father or mother” because they were busy running our affairs.
My father worked as a “bus driver” and we rarely see him at home, of course, because he leaves early in the morning and comes in the middle of the night.
He endured “the heat of the sun in the summer, the harshness of the cold in the winter”, the crowding in the middle of the day.
In addition, the bad words as well. Sometimes there are those who looks at him in a bad way and tell him that he is not enough and he can do something.
Despite all this!
He is silent and doesn’t utter a word, but on the contrary smile in their faces and continued his way, not because he was afraid of them, but only because he knows that is
“In patience there is hardship followed by beautiful joy.”
” God is always with those who are truly patient”.
My mother is a “midwife” but she was not qualified enough to be able to work in a hospital.
She used to help pregnant women in our neighborhood and neighboring neighborhoods, so they came in the middle of the night asking for help and she used to go with them, sometimes days and nights pass and we don’t even see her.
The difficulties we faced were not easy.
We stumbled a lot.
We lost and missed.
We crashed and fell.
Days passed and we were in that cold darkness starving, but in spite of all this we were somewhat happy.
My mother became a “gynecologist” and works in the most prestigious hospitals despite the challenges she went through, but she reached her goal and achieved her dream and we are very proud of her because she has persevered and is still steadfast. She was patient and is still patient. She is my role model always and forever.
As for me
in those years that passed, it was not easy at all, in which I lost my dad who was the pillar of our house and the stick on which we rely, but we always say “God’s destiny”.
I worked hard, studied, and worked day and night to get to the place I am in now, thanks to God, then my mother, then those good traces left by my father which are
“Patience and Will”.
I am the best surgeon in the world, I live in the most luxurious and luxurious neighborhoods, and I have that car that has always been in my mind and better than that pink room.
I really did more than I could.
I am very proud of myself and I thank God for those bumps and bad coincidences for that great loss and the wounds that afflicted my heart Because without this, I would not have been able to be myself, so Thank God always and forever.
“patience has many meanings, it is not just a word you say, but you have to learn and really be patient. To be patient with the pitfalls that fall you, the loss and the wound that afflicts your heart, the cold and dark nights in which you sleep while you are hungry and alone, the job that does not deserve you, the person who was not be yours, on the humiliation and looks that tell you you are nothing.
Patience for all that and more, because without patience, there would be no relief and happiness, and God Almighty knows what is in your heart and also knows what you want to be, and as he saying,
“but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere” which is the greatest hope in waiting for what you want, you just have to trust in the strength of God Almighty and do good to him and God loses not the reward of the good-doers.
