Hello, it’s been a while! I would like to share what I have witnessed just the other day that really touched the soft spot of my heart. 😍
Below is a picture of 4 orphaned chicks. Their mommy hen passed away due to some disease which affects the majority of their kind. I really pity them because they are just 2 or 3 days old… so young without a mom. I was thinking how would they survive without their mom beside them. Like humans, they need her care, her warmth, her guidance and support. Who will teach them how to look for their food? So I just watched them and they are all cheeping, probably calling on their mommy. They walk all over and do not leave each other… always in one group. I hope some hen will adopt them.
As they walk and walk, they met another hen but she did not mind them and kept on avoiding the 4 chicks. Then, they met another, a rooster being groomed for cockfighting. I was really amazed because he did not peck on the chicks, instead he just allowed them to stay in his area. Then as minutes go by, we just noticed that he was like training the chicks how to get their own food. See the photo below. Truly unbelievable! He is not even the father of these chicks.
But you know what, some realizations swept over me, MY FRIENDS, ESPECIALLY MY FAMILY does really care for me. I felt loved and cared for. One assured me that my decision was right. Another expressed their readiness to help if I need one. Some offered to visit me and meet up. And another even admired my character as a wife. I felt a pang of guilt that I had them worried for my being so dramatic. Though, one thing’s for sure, communication lines with them had been renewed and made fresh again. Thanks to you guys! Group hug!
Okay, don’t want to be a drama queen anymore, I’ll just stay positive as much as I can and enjoy every minute of the day. With my lots of free time, I’ll sure learn ways to make it productive. Trying to look for online jobs.. and hopefully I will find one, the sooner the better. Thanks to those who liked my first post!
Since I graduated from college 19 years ago, I’ve been working and living in a corporate world, exposed to modern life living near malls and other commercial establishments. I’m earning my own money and get to buy the things I want for myself, for my daughter, and of course for my husband. We eat out almost every weekend, may it be fastfood or fine dining. In short, I’m living the life I want it to be. Some few years ago, my husband was already convincing me to relocate in their provincial hometown, which I totally disagreed since I’m not used to live in such place. Moreover, it’s hard to sacrifice the life that was already built in our good old home, and of course my work which was our bread and butter, so as to say. He was saying that life would be better for our family if we will transfer so after almost 4 years, I was convinced. It was a very hard and life changing decision, and honestly, I am not sure if I made the right one. At this very moment, we are already here in our new place, just moved more than a month ago. I am really having a hard time adjusting, the reason I resorted to internet and try this blogging, at least I have some way to share my thoughts. But happy to say that my daughter had fully adjusted with her new school and friends, at least she’s fine. I know that one day will come (I hope soon!) when I will be adjusted as my daughter. I just need to find something I will be busy with, and at the same time will earn money. Though the place is great here with the green lush surroundings and fresh air, still missing my old life. I cannot define yet my purpose here. I felt I made a wrong decision. Did I?
