I feel so sad many times when I see my little child playing alone and sometimes I cry because of not being able to give him a little sister or brother. I used to live in a big family and I had sisters and brothers to play with.

I did my best to get rid of this feeling, but to be honest, it comes back from time to time until I had a situation that helped me to forget this feeling and change my sight to life as it becomes more positive.

Let me tell you what happened to me:
I went to the gym with my little kid to get his karate class – as usual. The class begins and I take my place on a seat watching my little champion doing his nice – and funny 🙂 – movements. Another mom comes and sits beside me and after a while, she asked something about the class and then looked at my son asked me “How old is your son?” I told her that he’s is 4 years old. She smiled and said that he is still too young. I tried to continue the conversation and asked her about her son’s age and she said that he is 9 years old. She kept silent for a while and I then looked at me and said: ” Do you know I do not care if my son learned karate perfectly. To be honest, I enrolled him in the class just to make him meets new friends or to be more clear to meet “people” he does not have anyone to play with at home as he has a brother with social and developmental delays because he has autism spectrum disorder,so he cannot play with. He is always at home and refuses to get out, so I did my best to bring him to this class”.

I listened to her carefully, but I did not reply or to be honest I could not reply. I just started thinking about the empty half of the glass and see that my little kid is alone because he has no brothers or sisters. Her son already has a brother but he feels alone as he is deprived Of playing with or talking to him. This woman has more than than one child but she feels sad not because she does not love her pure-heart little son with autism, but for sure because she always worries about him. She has a great but not easy responsibility to take care of her little gift.

Do not you ever look at what others have. Things do not seem as they are. Just be satisfied and thankful for what you have. You have what you need and it is not important to be what you want because not everything we want is the best for us. God knows better than us, so do not worry.

Oh God forgive me for these moments I forgot to thank you for everything you gave me
