Bathing 🛀 in rain🌧️

This rain has reminded me of that small poor boy. He didn’t have a decent bathroom to have bath. He would be forced to have bath just beneath the roof pouring rain water. He would be made wet by the cold rain water from the roof. He had to quickly apply soap and finish his bath as soon as possible. He had to keep himself warm by having hot water from his bucket provided by his mother.

Those days were very much full of different struggles. That boy wouldn’t complain. That boy knew all contrains his parents faced. Would you like to meet that young boy?

Am I likable!

We all have our own likes and dislikes. My likes might not coincide with yours. I don’t think we can agree on everything we share.

As a third child in our family, I never felt that I was liked by many. In fact in our culture, I felt disliked by many.

I was body shamed for having a broad nose. I was mocked for having a wide mouth. It made me hurt and caused to retrieve into isolation. I would be afraid to go out of the house without any reason.

I had fear of unknown. I was terrified by the sight of dogs. I couldn’t engage in any conversation with other kids in the class.

I felt useless and worthless. My parents were busy with sorting out their own differences and therefore couldn’t feel their caring love.

Definitely, they provided food, clothing, shelter, and schooling. I don’t feel great attachment towards my parents. My brothers were quite supportive.

My elder brother was always kind towards me. He would share his pocket money for my expenses. He would travel long distance to meet me in my hostel when I was answering my exams.

Later on, we encountered Jesus (Yeshua) through the preaching of our mentor. It brought great sense of belongingness. Both of us shared great closeness.

Afterwards, we began our own families. We got busy. We are connected to each other. We aren’t able to see each other so frequently because of pandemic.

The WordPress has gifted me many friends. Whenever I recieve a “Like”it thrills my heart. It produces a great feeling of warmth and self-worth. I feel appreciated. I feel people like me for who I am.

Your likes makes me feel likable. It has increased my confidence. I love to pour out my heart because of you guys. You make me write more. I write only for my readers. Otherwise, there’s no reason to pen anything.

I thank my Yeshua for blessing me with such huge gallaxy of friends from all around the world. God bless you dear friends. Stay home, stay safe.
