Kids or children or whatever people may call them are the bridge between a husband and a wife. I'm referring this to my situation. Without the kids, our (husband and I) life would be really dull. Sometimes, when we had disagreement and didn't talk to each other, the kids became the problem solver. Of course, our kids didn't solve the problems but because of the kids, we had to talk to each other and forget about the
When I got married about 9 years ago, I had to stay in USJ and Abang was in Kuantan. Even before we got married, Abang was already in Kuantan. He travelled back without fail every weekend to USJ to see me. Once in a blue moon, I took a flight to Kuantan and visited him. We had a long distance marriage for almost a year and a half.
Since I know, I'll be alone in USJ, I've prayed to Him so that I could get pregnant as soon as I got married. At least by having 'someone' inside could accompany my lonely nights. Alhamdulillah, my doa was granted. I had 'bunting pelamin' (is there any English word for this :P). When Sophea was born, my life was filled. I chose to take care of her in USJ by myself (Abang came back during the weekend). I've experienced so much moments with her including took her to the clinic by myself at 1.00 in the morning!
Our life became more meaningful after Sobhan and Shahmey were born. In short, our kids bring happiness to the family.
I could imagine how those couples who have been married for so many years but haven't granted any child. Looking at others with kids would somehow trigger an envious feelings. I have a male cousin who had been married for almost 13 years without child. They've tried many kinds of treatment. The sad thing was, some people accused the wife was barren! My cousin is a patient guy. He knows its Him who decides on everything. They kept praying and continued with various efforts. Alhamdulillah, the wife managed to get pregant and granted a baby girl. A year after that, the wife pregnant again and they had another girl. The miracle of being patience I guess...
Recently, I received another good news. A friend (you know who you're ;)) who've been married for a few years and waiting for a child in the family had conceived. Alhamdulillah! I'm so happy for her. Congratulations my friend! A series of good news came to her life which I can't mention here.
I also have a few other friends who haven't had any child yet. I pray to Him that all my friends will be having a brigde soon. Insyaallah...
