This just can't be it... i wanted to scream at the top of my lungs, how could this be ? when someone who longs for love, concern, words of encouragement, a hug, a kiss, some warmth and some tenderness from someone of whom we consider our "the other half" and just when the
"the other half" is in the most trying time,the longing seems so far fetch and looks so far a distant.
This just can't be it either........ so many years ago, the man could wait for hours after hours during those wooing times, times when he thought that all his waiting, all his absurdness seemed oh so worthwhile. How come all this has changed ?why is he not the same anymore.
Wanted to pass something to my second sister this morning, called her up, i could hear sobs over the phone, telling her to come see me in the coffee shop. She came, i saw tears dripping down on her face, asked her why, she declined to tell, but i already knew.As i mentioned not long ago, my dear sister is suffering a bad sickness,and a sickness that of late the doctor said had deteroriated a little bit, that sickness has battered her spirit,her hope towards life. kind of tossed her into topsy-turvy situation.
What got her really sad is the non-chalant attitude of her husband, he claimed that my sister was making a moutain out of a mole-hill, the attention and cares that a husband should shower upon the wife during this difficult time is not at all felt by her.
As a brother, i am helpless in giving her the advice and i am also not keen in lecturing her husband, for i know it would not be nice, telling someone off just because i feel for my sister. All i really could do is to encourage her to keep looking things at the brighter side and keep praying for a miracle.
I could feel how frustrating it can be that during one's most difficult time, when you long for the attention, the care, the concern and the love of someone you love can be so difficult.
