I called her this morning to check on her as part of my responsibility,suddenly she digressed to telling me a news that really shocked me and sending shivers down my spine. she said." He was trying to kill himself by jumping down from his apartment at about 4 am this morning, in the nick of the time, we managed to grab hold of him"
Financial woes, family disharmony, marriage discordance, job problem, nobody understood him ? regrets or being pressured with the insurmountable problems, extra marital affair or just losing hope for life, i really don't know.
I have been praying for this family, asking for the divine intervention to help restore this family but then again, sometimes i really wonder there is so much "The One Above" can do, if you chose to "remain unchanged", ain't it true?
I think i can categorically say that "there is no problem that could be too much to handle" if the family is intact or we take the effort to make it intact from all parties concerned and trusting "The One Above" when human's effort seems so helpless.
You know, sometimes I have friends telling me " you good lah, you got good wife, good children and some money in the bank" but one thing they never knew was that, i took the effort of being a good husband, a good father and my lovely wife also took the effort being a good wife and good mother too.
On the hindsight, I am glad that "no tragedy" happened and I am also thankful that "The One Above" has answered my prayer in preserving this family and i shall continue to pray for this family that there would be light at the end of the tunnel.
The question remains, what is worthwhile in the end ?
