When Your Child Becomes Your Guide


All the blessings in my life can be summed be in just one word – Rayyan


I can’t believe Rayyan, my wonder boy, is 25 years old as of today.  The wonder boy is now a superhero. I am so happy that I have lived to see him grow into a wonderful human being.
As I reflect back on the years he has been with me I feel so overwhelmed by his character. He could set a Guinness record for behaviour. Never has he fought with anyone, never landed a blow on a single person or animal, not once has he fought with me, never pestered me for anything he needs, never complains about the food I serve or do not serve to mention just a few things. The ‘never’ here is not a general once in while never. It is zero - actually a zero score.
Am I lucky? You tell me. A young man who will never be awed by someone others will consider big nor will pretend big to someone who others consider small. A sense of equality Rayyan possesses makes me feel guilty. He has changed me a lot in the past 25 years.
My daughter has been the reason why I fought cancer fiercely but Rayyan is the person in my life who helped me fight cancer. Even as a young child he would be there to comfort and encourage me. The worst emotional trauma for him was to watch me go bald very soon after I lost my sister. It was too much for a 5 year old to feel he may lose his Mom like he lost his aunt. It was very scary. He was very close to my sister and he loved her very much. He never let me feel hurt though by asking questions or making fuss about how he felt. He suffered silently and I was naturally worried about him.
He has a talent for coming up with some wonderful quotes at times which makes sense perfectly for the situation which has me rolling in laughter. I think he is compensation for all the rest of the shit I have in my life. Thank you Rayyan for being such a wonderful son any mother would be proud of.
Never once have I regretted having you as a son nor once have I been frustrated. If God had given me a chance, I may never have dared to ask for such a wonderful son ever. Glad he made his choice for me.  Thank you God for considering me worthy enough to have Rayyan in my life. He makes such a huge difference to me……………
 With a person like my son Rayyan, every moment has been filled with subtle humor, guidance, bliss and happiness, yet there is something very special about the day he, my first born entered my life. I send my good wishes and blessings to the most cherished person in the whole world on his birthday.  I changed to be a better person and role model for my kid, since the first day I lay my eyes on him. I wanted to guide him, be his inspiration and become his role model to walk on the right path in his life. Little did I realize back then, that he, my very own child, would be a guide and a role model for me? 
Today, if I am an educated working woman, majority of the credit goes to Rayyan. He is also responsible for teaching Farheena to use computers and internet to a great extent. 
Wishing you a wonderful and successful year ahead my dear son. You are my superhero, my sonshine, brightening up my days.
Happy birthday to you dear Rayyan!
