So, I as you noticed, I wasn't able to write an article for two days. I was a bit busy for preparing for my first project, char. Anyway, this article is not a continuation of my fiction story. Actually, I don't have a plan yet to write today but something pushed me to do so. Now, why does my title "A little help is a big blessing"? I just want to share to you something, I will not put any name of the person here as she don't know I am doing this. I am doing this coz I want to help on my own kind of help. If only I have lots of money, I sill surely gave her needs today.
This article is for her and for her little one. Everything I will earn from this article will be given to her. I can only do the writing as I don't have money to lend her coz I also need money this coming days. Honestly, I already used my earnings for my project that is why I need to do this to help her.
So, here's a the story.
I have a friend. Actually, she's my college friend. We became friends during our last semester in our college days as we were both student teachers that time. We became close. I never thought she's kind and down to earth coz when you look at her, she's seems strict and aloof. Until now we became friends though we not hang out together in person but I still treat her as my close friend.
I've learned that she was pregnant just this month. I almost didn't believed her coz I thought she's working in a company. We kept in touch this year. We kept on talking from the phone through messenger. She said she was pregnant. She didn't knew she's pregnant while working until she felt sick. She always felt the pain the in the stomach. She even take medicine when pain strikes. Until then, she decided to go to an ob-gyne and found out she was two months pregnant that time. She was stressed from her work that time that led her to felt sick. So, she needs to stop working despite the fact that she needs money especially that she need to save for her upcoming giving birth. I knew she was working online now. I am happy for her though it's late that I learned about her condition. She's with her boyfriend's house. They live with her boyfriend's parents. I told her it's hard to live with in-laws especially if you know, not all in-laws are good. She said, it's okay coz she don't want to give burden to her family. I know she's stressed nowadays as same with me, she also don't have work yet. Same with me, she's frustrated to work in Deped. That is why I kept on telling her to just go with the flow and time will come that we will both be hired in Deped. For now, all we need to do is to save money for our little ones.
Just last night, I learned that she gave birth last Oct.19. It was not my intention not to see her message last Oct.19 when she asked me of what I felt before when I was about to gave birth because I was busy that time that I wasn't able to look for messages. So last night, I wasn't able to slept as she's so late to reply. I was worried for her. So, I chatted her that if she needs something, just message me. So this morning, around 4am, she chatted me and asking for favor if I can let her borrow money. She told me about the situation of the baby and how she cried a lot since yesterday. I know, as a mom, you will do everything for your child even to make your face thick for asking other people a favor. So, without hesitation I lend her money even if I am going to use the money today. It's okay with me coz I still have extra here for us to pay for my first project. I told her sister to send me the picture of the baby if it's okay. I am glad that she sent me one. And I felt pain when I saw the baby having 'suwero' in her nose. The baby is so pretty but a tear fell from my eyes seeing her like that. I am praying for her to fight and that God bless her. I want to see that little girl to grow strong same with her mom. I will not post the baby's picture here coz it's confidential.
I learned that the baby wasn't able to latch milk from her. Maybe because her milk was not enough. She thought that her child latched and was full not until they know that there was no milk coming out from her breast when she pumped it. And it was when they noticed that the baby was not crying anymore and was turn pale into purple green while eyes was open. I know that my friend now is in pain seeing her child like that and I can't bear not to do anything for her and to her child. I instructed her sister to gave her lots of milo drink or much better malunggay soup so that she'll produce breastmilk.
Now, I am still not okay with the thought of letting her borrow money. Borrowed is a total different for giving. This time, I want to give her money. So, this is what I am doing now. Writing this article for her and for the baby. Everything that I will receive from this article will be given to her. I want to help my friend for a little thing that I can do coz I know it still great help for her.
For all mom's out there, I know it's hard to be a parent especially for us first time mom. Everything will turn out from your expectations but I want you to know that your baby wants a happy mom so don't be stressed and embrace the beautiful life of a mom.
