God Is Great and Very Kind!!!

                       

                      Hello   my   dear   friends ,


Hope   all   of   you   are    enjoying  your   life   with   positive   and   graceful   attitude .



       24    Years    back   when   i  was   expecting   my   first   child   and   according   to   our   tradition   for   the   delivery   went   to   stay   with   my   Mother   my   heart   was    bundle   of   nervousness ,anxiety  .happiness  and   fear   and   i   think   for   being   mom  first   time   these   were  normal   feelings.




When   in  7th   august   1993   in  Christine   hospital  taxila    after   surgery   i   came   into   my   senses  and    lady  doc   asked   me    that  for  which   she   should   congratulate  me   girl  or   boy  .I  answered  her   quickly  "girl"


She   said  okay  then  congratulation  you   are   a  mother   of  boy   now !



                                   1994  ,in  our   previous  house ,on  his  first  birthday!



I   smiled   to   her  but  inside   i  was   sad   because  i   wanted   a   daughter   as   i   saw    for   years   my   mom   suffering   with   rudeness   and   bad   behavior   of   my   elder   brother. 


She   used   to   cry   for   his   miserable  attitude   with   which  he  made  his  own  and  our  life   terrible   for   quite   a  time . It  is  just  me  and  my  sister  who  loved  and  cared  for   our  mother  .We    often  argue   to  sit  nearer  to  her  and  press  her  shoulders  and  legs   to   comfort   her .



                                            Islamabad  park  on   his  3rd   birthday!



But    God   tested   me  with   my   biggest    wish  a   "daughter " who   could   be   my   strength  and   friend    as   i  was   away   from   my   home   land  and    needed   a   loyal   partner   for  my   loneliness  .



When   i   took   my   little   baby   boy   in  my   arms   and   hugged   him   tight   all  my  


 fears   and   desires  disappeared  like   bubble  of   water   suddenly   and   i   felt   a   deep   


serenity   of   being  MOTHER!!!




                              on   his   8th   birthday  with  my  mom  and  his  father 

 In   coming  years     devoted   myself   to   my   son  .Each   minute   each   moment   i   stayed  close   to  him  ..Even   while   working    on  house   chores  i   kept   him  bound   to  me  all   the   time .


When   he  started    walking   and   talking   we   felt   most   happiest   couple   on   earth!


When   he  was  tow   and   half    i  started   to   teach   him  various   small   things  ,names  and   alphabets .


He   was   fast   learner  and  amazingly  mature   more   than  his  age .



When  he  got  scholarship  in Fast  University karachi ,17th  year  old 


For   ten   years   he  got   only  his   parents  as  best  friends   because   he   was  not   allowed 

  to   go   out  with   friends  as    in  our   city     environment   did   not   seem   safe      suitable   to   let   

him  out   all  by   himself . Though   in   school     his   friendship   developed   fairly  with 


 few  of   his  classmates   ,they   are   still   best   friends   though   everyone  is  stuck  in   studies   and  jobs .



My   eldest   son  while   his   teens   could    not  enjoy   life   as  my   both   younger  boys   


 can   do   now    because   meanwhile    we   started   to   buy   and   build   our   own   separate 


 house   which   was  really  expensive   process .



                         19th birthday  with  uni  friends  during trip  to  the picnic point 


Remembrance  of  that   day  still   makes   my   eyes   teary   when   my   eldest   son   had   to 


 leave  his  school   which   was  best  in the  city   but   fee   was  very  high .we   inevitably   put   


him  in   another  school   because   needed  to  decrease   the  expenditures  for  house   building   purpose .


                                                      with  university  fellows in campus ,almost 5 years back       
That   day  we   both   cried  me  and  my  son  with   tears  and  hubby   without   tears.   But    


my  dearest   Lord  turn   this  test   into   a  great   pleasant   surprise  when  because  if  my   son  would  have   not  that   school  and   study   in   common   one  he  could   have   not  get 


  scholarship   which    gave   his   career   boost   and   made   him   earn  far   better   than   all  his  other   fellows .



  He  never  this pic of his to me ,as  he knew i will first scream  and then annoy ,my  younger son stole it from his  phone .
This  huge  snake  was  real  and among his friends only he dared to hold it .I am still shivering............................. 


                                          Celebrating  the  togetherness !!!!!!!!



 In   his   teens   when   our   house   was  being   built  he   ran  with   his   father   for  all 


 works   that   were  necessary .At   home   he   helped  me   with  dusting  and  moping  .God   made  him  for   us   kind  and  true   friend .




                                               Happy   birthday  to  you  my  baba!!!
                                       May   you   be   blessed  with   long ,happy   and  healthy  life  full  with  kindness  and  love   for  your   Creator   and   all  his   creations,amen.



Tomorrow   is   his   24th    birthday  ,I   pray   with   bottom   of  my   heart   that  may   God   


bless each   child  on  earth  with   long   happy  and   healthy  life  and  then  May   he   bless   

my   child   ,children   with   long   healthy   happy  lives .May   he   fulfill  all   their   desires  that    are   good  and   turn   everything  positive   for   them,amen.

Dear   fellows   will   you   also   keep   us   in   your   prayers  because   God   hear  the  prayers   of   pure   hearts!



God   Bless  You  My   Precious   Friends!

Please  Take   Good   Care  ,Stay  positive  and  strong  with   smile  that  lasts  forever!

      When he was less then two years used to cry so much specially after midnight me and his father were new parents and only way to keep him quite was to cradle him in arms and keep walking for hour.

      Many times hisfather took him out just to stop his crying when city was asleep and streets were empty and scary.
      God turn him as his Blessing for us and we are overwhelmed by gratitude for this

  46. It is such a blessing to have children that are close in heart and person! You have raised a lovely young man, so glad you were able to not let what happened with your mother make you feel that you would have it the same way... Yes we need to pray for our children every day that they will lead the life that God has for them.

    1. Hi connie!
      It is so sweet of you to drop me such kind words my friend!

      Actually when my eldest brother was 14he had to live for almost an year at our aunt's house who lived in village very far from our city .
      Reason for this was that my 13 year old brother was hospitalized and under treatment for t.b from which he could not survive and died .My parents found it quite hard to attend him and look after me as i was hardly 4 and mom was expecting too.

      Anyway when my eldest brother returned he was not same kid anymore .
      he lost his interest in studies and in spite of all mom's efforts did not go to school and got worse in behaviors until mom died .
      though we both sisters support him in his hardships as he is our blood but he is still the same .

      I am so grateful to my God that my eldest son is very caring and responsible .
      His younger brothers are very younger than him one is ten and other is 13 year younger than him still he loves them so much and when ever we are together they have great fun

  47. What a beautiful tribute to your son Baiili! You write so beautifully, and I can just imagine how worried you were about having a son that would be unkind to you, but how the Lord changed that for you, and blessed you abundantly with such a precious son! How fast the years fly by, and how hard to believe when you see pictures of your children when they are little, and now grown! You have been an amazing mother, and truly have made a difference in the character of your son. With love and hugs to you, my precious friend!

    1. Hi dear Marilyn!

      Thank you sooo much for your such beautiful words that truly delivered my heart a deep sense of joy.
      You are so right time passes do quickly and children turn into confident grownups.
      Being a mom I have mixture of feelings in my heart.
      I want to have remote to stop their quick growth which drives them away from nest and me .
      Yet I want to see them growing finely with strong character and graceful ambitions in life.
      Looking at these photos gives a strong sense of achievement and deep sense of gratitude for Lord who made it possible

  49. Hi Baili - what a lovely post with some amazing photos - delightful to see. Your son is amazing and so responsible - also he seems to have the world at his feet for a career ... lots of opportunities. Is it going to be with wildlife, the environment, science? That snake horrifies me - but they are incredible creatures having adapted over millennia to be the living creature they are ... here's to many more happy years with your delightful family ... cheers Hilary

  50. These are treasured moments with your son, Baili. He sounds like a special young man. Mothers and sons have a bonding that is hard to explain. I'm also very close with my son, and was thrilled to hear I was having a boy after having two girls! The picture of your son on the beach is wonderful. And what a beautiful picture of you and him. Happy Birthday to your beloved son, Baili.

  52. What a heartwarming post, Baili! I can feel your deep love for your oldest son and for your family. Family is everything. Things have a way of working out over the years, like when your son had to leave the best school in the city but then gets a scholarship to university. You wanted a daughter and instead you had a son whom you guided and nurtured into a wonderful adult. We have a saying, "God works in mysterious ways." He has worked in wonderfully mysterious ways in your life!

    1. Dear Louise!

      You are absolutely right about God's mysterious way of work in our life.
      My whole life is filled with so many incidents when he alerted me when he miraculously saved me from big harm that could be disaster forever for me .He motivated strangly towards correct option . My each breath is like rope in which the beads of God's name are fixed .
      I breath i call him to thank for what he blessed me with though I had no sense of asking for all this
