Father is our pride and love
This winter was extremely cold for me. This morning, I went to a hospital near my home with my dad. The doctor said that I have a weak heart, so I feel much more cold than other people. I got some physical therapy and made an appointment tomorrow also. On our way home, I could feel father's love and he is worrying so much for me. I felt so sorry to him and I decided to do some exercise regularly and eat. The following essay is touching and make me feel the love of my father and Our spiritual Father, Christ Ahnsahnghong who came down to this earth for his children suffering.
While the family of father, mother, and a daughter was traveling, they had an accident. It was a big accident in which the car rolled down on a slope.Though the mother wounded slightly, the father and the daughter wounded severely, and had to be hospitalized.
The daughter’s wound was especially deep. Despite of all the treatments that had been done, she had to live her whole life on crutches. At that time, she was going on puberty, which created a deep scar in her heart. While her friends enjoyed PE, she just had to sit under the shade and watch.
When her friends chattered and hung out in groups, she had to come home on her crutches. She cried a lot. Her father,who was also on crutches, was her only comfort.
When the daughter complained, the father; who knew well about her circumstances, accepted her complains without words. The only happiness that the daughter had was when she talked to her father sitting on the bench in the park.
Going through the difficult times of puberty, the daughter went into college. The father came to her orientation and hugged her tightly.
“I am so proud of you,being my daughter.”
One day, on the same year, the family was walking along together. There was a small child playing with his ball.
When the ball rolled down the big road,the child ran to pick it up without looking around. Then something amazing happened.
The father threw his crutches away, ran to the road, took the child, and crossed to the other side of the road. The father ran nimbly and naturally. The daughter couldn't believe her eyes.
After a while, embracing the daughter the mother whispered:
“Darling, I think it’s time for you to know. Actually, your father is not ill at all. He got well after being hospitalized.
But after knowing that you had to live your life on crutches, he willingly wanted to live on crutches. He said he must share your pain. His clients, even his cousins don’t know about this at all. I t was a secret between your father and me.”
Looking at the father waving his hands on the other side of the road, the daughter shed her tears endlessly. Father is our pride and love.
