I remember the evening when I was scrolling through my Facebook page. She came by and saw me reading my birthday greetings.
'Oh, I forgot!' She exclaimed.
She'd already got all the ingredients to cook me something special. But she forgot today was the day.
I patted her hand and said, 'It's no big deal. You've done a lot taking care of me the last few months and helped me deal with the pain. I'm getting stronger now and I'm happy with my life.'
No, I didn't say exactly those words. I said far less than that. But those words came from my heart. And I was referring to the major painful experience and operation I underwent and the post operation healing process that she bore through with me.
For that I am thankful.
