sad story

You know when you hear something sad and just say "oh" but never really think about it again? Then there are other times when you can't stop thinking about what was said and it somehow has an effect on your life? Well, today I heard something that really got me thinking...

One poor Sri Lankan lady had to leave her baby when he was only 3 months old. She had found a job working in another country as a housemaid and didn't want to lose the opportunity. She returned to Sri Lanka 6 years later, only to leave again after one month. Her own child shied away from her! He didn't even know her. She has no plans to return for another 6 years, at which stage she will have already missed a significant part of his life.

I know there are lots of stories like this one, but since my little one is only 5 1/2 months now, this really hit a nerve.

How lucky we are sometimes, yet we don't realise till it's too late.
