Been thinking about something and I can't help but share it on here. Recently, a friend of mine lost her cousin... She died after giving birth to a set of twins (two beautiful girls).
Anyway, after the funeral and all, family members committed to give their support to the father and the granny in catering for and raising the twins. However, it hasn't even been 2months since the death and burial of this lady, and everybody has forgotten about these children. I feel that way because, I don't hear my friend talking about them like she used to at the beginning, no phone calls talking about how the children are coping; No account of them, no update, nothing at all... Everyone has moved on. They have gotten busy with their own issues and affairs and the twins have now become history if you ask me.
Dwelling upon the situation of the twins reminded me about when my mum died; how family members promised to be there... Some of them said "oh don't worry, we are there for you" Others said... "call on me anytime". And the question I asked myself was, "were they actually there?" Nope! they weren't... Was it a spur of the moment thing, which inspired consoling words? Yes it was... Do I blame them? No I don't... I really don't, cause everyone has got issues and although some might try to be there for you, they won't be there always. Only God will always be there.
As for the little girls, I only and always lift up a prayer to God for their protection, provision and sustenance.
Now my question is, is it that we get too busy with our own issues, that we forget about others, or do we make promises in the heat of the moment and yet forget? Let's hear you out please.
Peace... I'm out!
