When my kids were small,I used to watch them playing in the field.It was a great joy for me then.Yesterday, after my morning walk,I saw a group of kids from nearby school running to the playground to play.It put the smile on my face looking at them having fun-the noise was music to my ears. One minute later,my heart sank when I saw a teacher was pushing a handicapped girl in a wheel-chair trailing behind.She is one of those happily running kids going to the padang for their PE class.Just imagine her feeling watching her friends running around having fun and she got stuck in a wheel-chair!
Immediately,I recited Alhamdulilah a few times because I was blessed with three healthy boys.Now, they are young men in their 20's.Thank you my Lord for your rahmah and rahim to my family.And please forgive my inadequate gratitude to You and my disobediences to Your Commands.We can disobey the Commands of Allah,but we can't run away from the Wills of Allah!
To parents reading my musing today, you know the feeling...
