I was running long and hard yesterday evening,I ran for about 2 hours and 15 minutes in the vicinity of my house.Every time when I am done running,I would rest my tired body at the entrance to my apartment,likewise I did yesterday.
Those moments of resting,would always allow me to greet my neighbors when they come back from work but yesterday was not that usual for me and I felt real sad..........
So I saw one neighbor parking her car and she was kind of in a rush and her child was summoned to quickly come down from the car,so as they walked towards me,I greeted at the boy first and smiled at the mother and something so spontaneous came to my mind and I just blurted out and asked her this.
I asked,"Hey,Micheal(her husband)must be very busy,have not seen him since CNY and when is he coming back?" When she was hurrying away to go upstairs,she looked over her shoulder and responded,"Micheal will never be back already? I felt shocked,I thought Micheal has died,so quickly I asked her why,she reiterated by saying," You ask Micheal lah" Period.
When she said that to me,I could see there was some anger manifested in her expression but I could not say any further,I guess as much that they have "split"
I don't want to talk about divorce but when I looked at that neighbor of mine, I really felt so sad,sad because another woman has to struggle housework,office works and tending to the child and that kind of job is harder that one can imagine
.Can she manage,would she be able to handle the impending stress? I wonder.
May be all that I can do is to pray for her and telling her that she could always come to us (Me and my wife)if she needs our help
P/S : Sometimes I wish,someone could just another someone
