All because of my condition. I cannot bend. My back aches all of the time. I cannot take public transportation.
The things that my mom has to go through! Poor mom!
So, whenever possible I do simple acts of love like wash the dishes (I cannot stand for long periods of time so I do this at an "angle"). I also massage my mom's feet from time to time. And since she loves playing mah jongg, I play the game with her even if I end up with a very painful back.
When one is sick, it is easy to think that he/she is worthless or no good. But no! That is far from the truth. Take my case. I am afflicted with several illnesses but I believe that just by staying home, I can cheer up other people through text messages, phone calls, chatting.
I also use this blog to send inspirational thoughts and funny messages.
Here's one I got through email:
An Arab student sends an e-mail to his dad, saying:
Berlin is wonderful, people are nice and I really
like it here, but Dad, I am a bit ashamed to arrive
at my college with my pure-gold Ferrari 599GTB
when all my teachers and many fellow students
travel by train.
Your son, Nasser
The next day, Nasser gets a reply to his e-mail
from his dad:
My dear loving son
Twenty million US Dollar has just been transferred
to your account. Please stop embarrassing us.
Go and get yourself a train too.
Love, your Dad
