Brave little boy
Surely, in life there are so many people who are unforgettable, whom you may not come across anymore but the memories you had with them, do.
Such was a boy named Ahmed Hassan, who was 9 years old and a student of mine and above all he was a thalassemia patient. He was a brilliant boy.He was a good learner and a hard worker. When Mrs. Rubeena, his previous teacher, handed over me that child, she told me all about his illness.On my first day at teaching the new class Ahmad himself came to me and explained all about his illness and the treatment. He was a bold boy and never felt disappointed about his illness. Being a teacher and a mother, it was hard for me to control my tears and i hugged him.His parents had taught him to be confident, i was anxious to meet them.
When i met his mother, i was shocked to see how weak she was! I couldn’t help myself from crying. I understood how worried she must me all the time. I promised to pray for her son and also told everyone else to pray for his health.
Last year i quit my job because i was shifting from Quetta.But i still remember him in my prayers and all the children around the world facing this problem. God bless them. Ameen.
Painted Striped Floors Are My Favorite
This is from a blog entitled You Are My Fave by Melanie Blodgett. According to her own description, “I like performing victory dances when I win board games. I like polka dots. I like cute bikes. I like spin moves. I like planning parties. I like you unless you’re a hater.” This is from a post about painted striped floors using a photograph from a Better Homes and Gardens feature on painted stripe floors. Ms. Blodgett writes, in part, “I couldn’t resist but post these painted stripe floors from the February issue. I adore the color combo she chose but unless my wood floors were thrashed, I don’t think I would have the heart to paint them.” There are 22 comments.
