When we were growing up, we do sing this song and as a prayer that "I will buy motor for you, I will build a house for you, I will take care of you" we are referring to our parents and gradually we see some children trying to care for their parents when they grow up. I have found myself in this too.
That title above is what my younger sister next to me said one day. She told me;
Well, you wouldn't know my story if I didn't open up to you. I think I shouldn't go deep because I would cry much while writing this article but @HappyBoy article wanna make me say something and write on it.
If I had to look at the past to see what my Dad had done to us, seriously I wouldn't do what I am doing today. Even as I kept begging my elder sister not to act bad to him because he is still our father whether we like it or not. But I am always that "MERCIFUL CHILD" as he do calls me.
Let me tell you something about me, like a bait. Even if I decides to act bad to you, I still find myself wanting to help you in such a pitiable state you are in. Just don't give me that "sorry look" because I will surrender myself into helping you.
My Dad called me three weeks ago and explained of his leg issue and I could remember he battled with this leg years before and after mom died. He will always boil water and heat his legs with it. He could have gone to the hospital but poverty would always have its way.
So, he explained of going to the hospital but he had no money. He is living with his mom (my grandma) since the death of my mom and he doesn't have anything doing. My elder sister has been taking the responsibility and she told me one-day that I should do quick so I can relieve her off the burden because I know it isn't easy.
I got to that stage even with the little I am doing for my siblings and family, I know it's not easy. HappyBoy said being single is the right time to care for your family because you wouldn't have much responsibility then.
I agree with him and this is why I am trying my best too to work hard and help my family especially my Dad and siblings.
He called and asked if he should talk to my elder sister to send him some money but I quickly told him what his daughter, my own elder sister is facing in Lagos. She can't open up to Dad but we her siblings so I know her condition.
I sent money to my Dad to go to the hospital and not disturb his mom and my elder sister because she is trying too especially living in an exorbitant location at Lagos.
My sister called me and was like "Busayo, thank you very much". Within me I know she was happy I am trying to help her too which I would love to continue as long as God keeps blessing me.
I even called my junior sister because she is serving right now in the East and I told her we could raise something between us and not disturb our sis which she tried her own best to send to Dad. That was when she said that statement up there.
I want to try my best to do what I can now that my Dad is still alive even though I am always pained not seeing my mom alive to enjoy too. While my Dad is still living, I need his prayers always and with this little I am doing, I can gain his favor through prayers for me which I find rewarding.
Expect your parents' blessing by making them happy.
Just as HappyBoy said and a reminder to us, let's remember our parents while they are still alive and always take care of them. The most important thing for you is their blessings.
Wow! You've already known a little part of me and I feel relieved opening up to those who cares to listen. I love to express myself more in writing than talking because I might not say everything whereas, in writing, it speaks for me completely.
Thanks for reading and I wish us a glorious week ahead.
