How I Discover Love
What is Love?
Love varies in meaning. Love for friends, for families, for someone special and love for ourselves. Love is indeed a feeling that is so mysterious to explain, the feeling that provides you the courage and strength to go on every curve of our life. Love makes the world go round.
The Discovery of Love
The rain was pouring heavily under our umbrella and the wind was blowing his rage. It was a stormy afternoon when we’re walking from school to our home. At barely four years of age, I was too young to know about love.
My mother held my hand tightly as we cross the bridge. I was so scared because I thought the wind might sweep my body away and I’ll fall into the river. I was wearing this little cute hat with ears when the wind stole it away. I wanted to cry as I saw it fell beside the riverbank. It was my favorite hat. My eyes shined with tears as I bid my hat goodbye.
My mother knew how much I treasured it. When we came home, she asked me to stay while she gets my hat. I did not say no because I wanted to get my hat back. I’ve waited for like forever for her to come back. As time ticked by, I silently wished that I never let her go. She’s much important than my favorite hat. The riverbank was steep and slippery and she might fall. The weather made me want to cry more. But I couldn’t. I’m so shy to let her know that I have tears.
When she finally got back, I hug her tightly into my small arms. That’s when I know that I loved her more than anything else in the world. She’s the only one who would sacrifice her safety to get what I want, to give what I need and teaches me how to become a better person while growing up.
That night, lying in my bed, I shuddered at the thought of her being out there in the rain just to get my hat (which is hanging by my side table). I know that bridge is tall and quite scary. What if she’ll get sick?
I dozed off to sleep with thunderclaps and heavy rains over our little home, while saying a little prayer to keep her safe and all the people of the world.
Thankful For Everything
Although I lived my whole life having one parent only doesn’t make me less than I am now. They say, having both your parents is different. Yeah, I could agree to that but there’s nothing I can do – even if they say how perfect, how happy, how lovely to have both on your side.
I’m just thankful for everything. I know that there are a lot of kids out there who had worse situations than me. I’m perfect in my own little way, my own little life and my own little fairytale world. This is me.
The love of my family will always be kept inside my heart and all the sacrifices they’ve made just to make me who I am now. They’ve raised me perfectly, pretty and whole with full of love.
