In the glow of night, a walk under the moonlight with its bright shining glamor caressing your facial features, you analyze how empty your life is. The loneliness adds to the trauma, making you feel insatiable. To gain some peace of mind you:
- Talk to a good friend
- Listen to some sad painful melody, a ballet, or a song
- Or get more frustrated.
Last summer I had my experience of a life time. The story back then was tragic. I had been having several mood swings lately. At the end of each day I realized how awful the day was, and how I wasted all my time. I had a feeling of incompleteness. To add some color to my life I went to Dar-Ul-Sukun- Home for peace and love.
On the first day I was welcomed by the youthful intelligent faces smiling whole heartedly. I realized that my peace-less existence was about to turn into a satisfied one. The children there are special in every way. They make you feel every emotion “deeply”. The more I went there, the more eager I was to do something to make a change- at least for these kids. They are the true gems, the blessed ones. They lead a life that knows no sorrow, just happiness. Their exuberant smile encourages you to let go off the grief, to welcome the bounties and to thank the Creator at every juncture.
Yes they are between us, one of us – The differently able children. They will surprise you with their skills. They will make you laugh till your cheeks hurt. But the best part is they will make you learn- learn from every experience of life. They will make you accept life the way it is, and to face the difficulties. They make you strong by their constant support. Most importantly they teach you to be patient.
So, if you want to learn these skills free of cost, come visit the extra ordinary children. Remember to value them. Make them your new best friends and you’ll realize how beautiful life is.
“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
