Unexpected surprises! #AtoZChallenge

Last chapter


08 August,2015

Natasha was planning to spend the Saturday lazing around at home. As she had put on weight, her feet hurt even with an inch of movement. That’s when she heard the continuous knock on the door accompanying the persistent door bell.

‘Whenever I plan to sleep, someone comes knocking. Ah!’,mumbled Natasha.

‘Ananth open the door please’.

‘Nats, I am working, you go ahead please!’,replied Ananth with an uninterested tone.

Natasha walked towards the door with her graceful penguin waddle as the thudding on door continued.

‘SURPRISE!’, shouted the people on the door in unison. Natasha realized that her whole bunch of family and friends were present at the door.

‘Surprise Natasha! Let us in and stop gasping’, said her best friend Amy. As the people started gathering inside the home, it dawned on her that everyone had come for her baby shower. Ananth knew about it and he was one of the people involved in all the planning along with Amy.

Her cousins, friends and colleagues had come together to throw her a baby shower. There was food and drinks and lots of gifts. Amy had brought her special pasta and her mother had made Biryani. And, to top it all they also had bought a dress with matching tiara for her. The cute decorations added to the charm.

During the day, they had an auspicious ceremony where elders blessed her and her child. They whispered sweet nothings into her ears. Afterwards, they had dance party in the living room.

Natasha was elated at all the love that was showered on us. And, she knew that she was lucky to have people around who care and her child would be equally loved. The day was spent well with all the unexpected surprises she got.

Curse of Cancer… #AtoZChallenge

(Image Copied for internet)

Cancer is a life-threatening disease which results from abnormal growth of cells. It affects different people in different ways. Whatever be the case, the person suffers – both physically and mentally. Family and friends around the person also feel the same pain. Seeing your loved ones go through the treatment is hard.

Just today morning I had read the story of a kid who underwent the cancer treatment on Humans of New York page on Facebook. Each story that I read or hear has a common connection – the fear of unknown & the faith to get better.

I understand your pain. Every needle that pierced you equally pierced my heart. You were the one going through treatment & I was as anxious as you. Awaiting the scan results was miserable. Each day had new anxiety levels. Your eyes conveyed the feelings which the words could not. A visit to doctor was never so scary. Let’s just say I also never want to visit hospitals ever again for a lifetime.

Only you can determine the extent of your pain. You have been through it & no one can ever fully comprehend how you feel. But, never forget that you have your family & friends to support you whenever you need us. It’s not your battle alone to fight. We are all in this together & will sail through it. God’s grace has helped us throughout these tough times. And the worst is over!

The future holds all good things for you. Please do not let go of who you were. The zest for life that you have should stay till eternity. Think of it as a cloud with silver lining. Remember your dreams & aspirations and live for them with a new passion. Afterall, there are so many things left to try!

– Love you loads ! 🙂

P.S. – This post is dedicated to all those who are going through Cancer & their families. It may be tough right now, but this too shall pass.
