i am sick mom,please come!!

nobody likes being sick. one feels so weak and tired and cranky. its my personal experience that being sick sucks! I had fallen sick last week. i live in the hostel but i was sent home for a few days. at home, lying on the bed all day long , i had a thought. something which i would like to share with you all via a short story.

nina was a 23 year old , smart, funny and surrounded with great loyal friends. she loved her family, though it was broken. she stayed with her mother. they shared a very special bond.  one day she fell sick, terribly sick. she was taken to the hospital , very weak, pale and unconscious. when she opened her eyes , she saw her friends all standing in anticipation. she looked at all of them. she scanned the entire room. they were there to take care of her. they loved her, she could see it. but she double checked the entire room, and then the only word which came out was , “MOM?”

her friends all rushed out to call her mom who was talking to the doctor. as soon as her mother entered and held her hand, she felt a warmth spread through her. none of the people in that room , no matter how close to her they might be, or how much they loved her, could have that effect on her.

her mother simply kissed her forehead and she closed her eyes. she knew she was safe. later, when her mother had gone home to get a few things , she looked at her friends. she loved them so much. she was happy that they were there for her. but , she couldn’t deny, nobody can replace a MOTHER. she was not a child anymore, yet she needed her mother. and she would always need her mother.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

the only person who sends warmth throughout me when i am sick is my mother. the only one who handles all my tantrums and my crankiness throughout is my mother. how does she do that? doesn’t she get tired? the one who stays awake all night to see if i am sleeping properly is my mother. the only one who still thinks of me as a kid, is my mother. how does she do that? no matter how old i get, i will always call ” i am sick mom, please come!! ”
