3 Ramadan – 22 Ramadan. Encountering the real LIFE.

11 Aug

Within these days, my life just flipped around. The serene landscapes were conquered by stormy winds at a flip of a coin. Seriously. All what we see on news every day, hear about, talk about, and apologize for may actually be real. Occasionally,  we observe world health day, earth day, Thalassemia day, etc which practically mean nothing to us, but it will when you will fell sick, when the world climate is going to change dramatically and wipe us out from the map, when we, God forbid would experience being a Thalassemia patient, etc. Did you reach where I am standing right now? I hope so.

My cousin sister is diagnosed of stage IV Burkit Leukemia. It was not even in our conscious minds, non of us thought of it, ever. Cancer was nothing more than a gloomy topic for us over which we twisted our facial expression for a fraction of a second, prayed and switched back to our normal mode. But now, when we feel the pain of having a loved one in this deadly reign… we know how it pinches. It hurts, really bad!

Times pulsates, it oscillates, and so did our hearts. We couldn’t let the brutality of the time snatch our beautiful relationship. Outreaching every possible solution, we navigated, we prayed, we paid, we cried, and we gave rise to our hope and trust in divine.

This Ramadan, Life taught me how real it is. Yes it is hurling wind, it is hopeful sunrise, it is a truthful prayer, it is human! – sigh.
