My Little Angel

The story to be told in few words is tough to relate. But still I'll try.
My marriage is 14 years old. I had a great married life, great husband and a good family. God blessed me with a prince. Life went on very smoothly then... when my son was 8yrs old... we were blessed with twins again... one girl and one boy.
My happiness was out of bounds in spite of my health problems. But all the smooth waters of our lives rippled when a harsh stone was thrown by our destiny. We couldn't believe that God would gift our daughter (amongst twins) with a life threatening problem. My 5 year old princess is still fighting with "Cerebral Palsy".
Suddenly our life became still... a pause came... which had no hopes of replay... but then God shaked me and gave me a wake-up call.
Then I realised and accepted my destiny. Though my mobility is restricted... as I can't leave my daughter alone. But then I did so many things staying in-house which otherwise I had always been dreaming of. I started painting, writing & teaching at home. Now all this gives me a sense of satisfaction & accomplishment.
I have made good use of my capabilities & my boundation is no more an obstacle. Rather this situation is supportive enough for me. My elder son and younger son (amongst the twins) & my husband are supportive enough for all the situations in my life.
Now my daughter is no more a liability... she's our goodluck charm and a source of immense happiness. Besides I've 2 healthy sons. So life is a ray of hope, faith & and endless journey.
So I live each moment in my present.
