My wife found this video while surfing around and watching videos on YouTube. This was her new found hobby of searching baby related videos ever since she got pregnant.
She showed me this video last night, telling a story of a woman delivering her child prematurely so that the child’s dying father could have a moment with the new born before he passed away.
This is thought provoking.
A little too soon for the father to leave this world. He would not have the chance to accompany this child as he or she grows up.
A little too late for the baby to arrive. The child would not have a loving father side by side in the growing up process.
Just in time for the father to hold his child before he leaves.
When’s the right time? Too soon? Too late? Or just in time?
From time to time we watch some videos, gets terribly upset. For a few days we get very conscious of how we live our life, then we forget about it after that and we are back to square one. So once in a while, we need a wake up call. While we are here taking things for granted, there are some less privileged people out there. In this video, we see children of Uganda, abandoned, starved and left to die if help doesn’t come to them. My heart aches terribly looking at the starving children.
While there’s probably little we can do, this should still serve as a reminder of how fortunate we are. Do share this with your friends.
