So I woke up to this morning to a get well soon card my youngest sister sent to me on WhatsApp and captioned, “I found this in one of my books.” And I’m here wondering when I got that card in particular and why it never got to the rightful owner. Like what happened really? It was from me to Mrs. Maryam and I honestly do not know if it was to my boss’s wife, because that’s the only Mrs. Maryam I know right now.
I can’t remember anything about that get well soon card, but I know it’s been ages and it still looks very new. It also happen everytime when my sister try to remind me of things I’ve done for her, and she would always say, “you did this and that for me, I’ll never forget” And I’d be like, “when did I do that? Or I did that? With a smile on my face I would say, “I can’t even remember those.” And to be honest, I sincerely do not remember nada no matter how she tries to paint the picture for me to remember.
The point is, “do not remember what you did for others, and never forget what others did for you.”
I also have a friend whose name is Blessing, she would always say to me with a huge smile on her face, “Gloria, you can keep record, I can’t even remember I did that.” But then, there’s no way I can ever forget the good done to me by anyone. Never! I return favours, and if I can’t immediately, just know it’s in mind until I’m able. It might take years to return any favour done unto me if I can’t return immediately. Truth is, when I’m returning the favour, it might not be to you the doer of the good, but to your offsprings–they might be the ones to enjoy the rewards of your goodness.
I’m writing this because a lot of people are tired of doing good. They keep receiving the opposite of the good they’ve shown towards people. But then, in a world where people are tired of being good and doing good, I want to remind someone somewhere out there to, “keep at the good you do. One day, it will pay off.” Trust me! Doing good is who you are, do not allow the world change you and or cause your heart to grow cold just because they forget and repay you with evil. You are who you are for a reason, so keep being the good person that you are.
