Walking Down the Lane ‘C
As I stand today near the 18th milestone of my journey down the lane C, everything behind me appears to be so smooth and clear. Distance and time are great illusionists of our lives. They make everything appear small and smooth. 18 years is not much to consider as a time, but it has worked wonders in allowing me to gain balance to stand steady on my feet, since the time when ground underneath them was suddenly lost with the utterance of those three dreadful words. No, it was not ‘I love you’, but ‘You have Cancer’. I still feel it in my bones, the mild shivers that ran down my spine, the sweat that wet the napkin in my hand, my burning cheeks and wild heartbeats. It is amazing that falling in love gives you the same symptoms. Talk about the jokes of our lives. God indeed has a humorous streak in him.
