because people speak English
You don’t know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have.
Familiar with that sentence? How strong do you think you are?
Last week, we had guests at home. My old friends came to our house. We had a good time though their 20 months cute daughter couldn’t come. We talked, we laughed and we ate. It was lunch time so of course we ate. It was a memorable moment, but there was something that I will always remember. It was my dad. He has glaucoma since 2005. Had a surgery, but that doesn’t seem to be working for him and so he lives in the dark since then.
Back at lunch time, my dad said, “Come on, eat a lot. I won’t notice.”
Hearing that, we all laughed because obviously he wouldn’t notice. I was also laughing, but inside I realized how great my dad is. He accepted his condition and he can even make fun of it. It takes a very big heart to accept unwanted condition like that and I know it takes years to be like what he is now. I hope wish I can be like my dad. I hope wish I can laugh at whatever it is that made me cry. I hope wish I can also be as strong as he is. Well I have to be tough, so no one will bite another part of my head again :D
