Today I have had good news. My husband has his Fellowship Diploma in hand today. The months of tears and hard work have finally paid off.
Time took a hard toll on him and his health. In between we had the scare of my mother’s double illness.
There were times when I thought and he thought he was going to give up and come home.
It is a great achievement for someone at 55, and whose last formal education ended in 19999 at 37 years of age. The Fellowship was not really a dream for him, I guess, not if one had heard him over the past months but I think it was a dream plan put in his heart by God – he just took the opportunity.
- It is never too late to start on something new, to explore a new avenue and see what life brings if you choose to deviate from set tracks.
- Life or should I say, forces try to push you away from the path-that happens all the time, when you are on a straight and narrow track, especially one that has not been so well explored.
- Prayer, especially prayer from a lot of people play a great role in nudging you to that path, even if you might want to go back to the safety of your starting point.
- God is the driver of the vehicle, you are just a passenger. All you need to do is sit, and be still on that vehicle. The driver will drive you to your destination, safe and sound.
- The path you took can be a beacon of light for others after you. You might be a role model for others. My daughters’ classmates look up to my husband for his courage in taking this plunge so supposedly “late” in his life.
Now I am waiting for him to come back and join us home on Saturday.
One year back I wrote this post- a year has brought a lot of changes. This year has been one of regrets and losses for me- I could have made it better but chose not to. I should have done better.
