Sometimes last year on a weekend like that, I was home broke, lonely and miserable. I took my debit card to go withdraw the last cash pending the resumption of work the following week. Got to the ATM and met a long queue, it got to my turn and lo and behold the ATM seized my machine for reasons best known to it. I was beyond angry as I had no cash on me to take a bus back home. So I trekked back home thoroughly tired, miserable, hungry and angry. I decided to cook the last food at home and eat and see if manna may somehow somehow fall from heaven. I checked the gas cooker and lo and behold there was no gas. It was at that moment I knew something was definitely wrong that Saturday morning. Met my mother and ask her to loan me some cash and promised to pay the following week. She agreed and gave me the money I requested for.
I cooked some staple food, ate and slept off. It was my phone ringing that woke me up. I answered the call and the caller who happened to be a client of mine needed some help on some IT stuff, I offered it and slept off again. I slept for another 2 to 3 hours. On waking up, I decided to check my phone to see if I have any notification. Lo and behold, the Client I attended to has sent me some little money as Thank you. She had my account number from previous dealings. I called her back to say thanks. Transferred the loan i borrowed from my mum back to her.
A morning that started with so much hopelessness and frustration later ended on a happy and sweet mode which is typical of our we live our lives. Sometimes, things may not be going well for us but be rest assured that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Don't let temporary setback stop you from being positive. There are positive in all negative.
