I want to share a story of an arrogant lad. He graduated from a local university, and took the plunge of his career in a multinational company, where he meet a girl – a girl he took for granted. He never willing to spend his time with the girl, and when the girl called to ask how he is doing, he would furiously scold her,”Don’t you have nothing better to do than bothering me?”. All the time he had was spent with his buddy, completely ignoring her presence.
The girl will just keep quiet, do not know what is happening and what went wrong in that relationship. He got a job opportunity to KL half a year later, where he accepted the offer immediately without informing his girl. It was his wish to move away from the girl, hoping that the girl, will be heart broken and disappear from his life. Even when he came back for a holiday, he would be pretending to be very busy with his friends and games. The relationship never ended, but it was still, as both party are not willing to express the dismiss. Such is the attitude of this arrogant young lad, who is still learning what is love.
The girl has been very patience. She cried in silence, wishing that her young lover will grow up and becoming more mature. Time passes with the sour relationship remains unattended for 1 year. Life went on for this young lad, and one day he was stricken with dengue fever at KL. As ignorant and arrogant as he could, he thought that he could manage everything on his own, refusing to let his family members know about his situation. His situation is getting worse, and his family member who got to know of his condition from a friend who worked in the same hospital, rushed to KL to take care of him.
This girl offered to stay with him at the hospital, taking care of him. In every two hour, she help to sponge him, administering him medicine, praying that his body temperature went down as soon as possible. She did this for two consecutive night and barely slept. At the end of the second day, when the young man awake from his sleep, he found the girl lying on the chair beside his bed motionless. He looked at her, regretting on how he had treated her from the start. He moved towards her and planted a kiss on her head. He felt a sudden emotional rush of feeling towards her. He made a silent vow to himself that he will appreciate this girl and would treat her better in the future.
The arrogant young lad is me, and the girl is my wife. We have been through a rough and rocky start. Back then, I really do not know what is love. I used to be impatience and short tempered. It was my wife who taught and showed me how to love and care for someone with all my heart. It was her patience and love for me that shape me to what I am today. With her, I started to have plan for our future. She always told me that she made not much contribution (financially) to our household, but deep down my heart, she is the one who had been silently maneuvering the wheel to our future.
It had been a 6 years since we hold our hands together. The love, relationship and the intimacy is getting better each year. Last Saturday, after I was done with the laundry, she told me that she is so blessed to have me as her hubby as I was helping out with a lot of chores in the house. I told her,” I’m the one who are blessed for having you as my wife. Don’t forget that you are my gold medal wifey“.
