My Saviour - remembered fondly – for they day I felt that someone cared about me

Tags:

Parents love their children. No question asked. However, I learnt some parents don’t know how to show love and caring towards their children while fighting their own battle of survival. I was and am loved and cared by my parents. As a kid I believed I was unwanted and a burden they had to carry.

I cannot remember much of my childhood or school days but there were few hilarious, sad, happy and enlightening moments I can remember. Now, I can have a laugh about those times but at the same time it makes me think intensely until my head hurts. It was not making sense and it seems unfair.

I get pulled up for various trivial things at school. From what I remember I was definitely pulled up and humiliated for not memorising the answers. Once, I was thrown out of class and nearly ended up in the principal’s office if not for my saviour, for mimicking a teacher who often humiliates me in front of my classmates. I do not regret any of those moments but I feel anger towards the teacher. I think I have forgiven her now.

My turning point in my life was at the all girl school was when I realise there was someone who did “trust” me and thought I was worthy of “something”. I was able to scrape through just to be OK. I kept my promise I made to my “Saviour” who was my angel from a far land. I was fortunate to keep my promise. It was years later I met her and the first comment she made to me was “You did keep your promise” I was totally surprised and replied “Miss, you remember me?” I felt the same way when she pulled me up nearly 8 years ago. I was her student for less than two years yet she understood me. It is just a little understanding, care and love people show that save people like me from loosing sight and going stray. I felt a boost of love and felt really special that day. It was a glorious moment.

Giving some consideration and a little of our time do help people to be empower them selves just by holding to that glorious moment. I love my parents dearly.

May God rest my saviour's soul in heaven.
