When life gives you lemons, make lemonade is a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune.
A young lady who has been suffering for quite a long time with several ailments has penned an emotional letter of hope and fear.
She has been bedridden for quite a long time, praying for recovery, however this was not to be.
The day finally came when she left the bed to the grave.
‘What did I ever do wrong to get all this suffering in my life. I started getting ill when I was in high-school, while I joined form one. I thought it was something small and I could get well with time. It was later on I discovered that my vein had formed a clot in my leg.
That went on till I joined campus and it had become part of my lifestyle. I struggled with this and the situation worsened when I joined internship. I never got to finish the program as I became hospitalized immediately I started the session. I lay on that sick bed for weeks hoping to get better someday and maybe walk again on my two feet.’
The young lady had dreams that she could wish to accomplish after finishing school.
‘I have always wished to be a better person in life and help my parents. All my dreams are now held up within this bed. My family and friends visit me all the time and give me false hope when they know I will not make it. Everyday I sleep I never know if tomorrow will come. It’s time I get to rest for I am fighting a war that I have already lost.’
Those were the last words she spoke before she slept, never to wake up again.
She left her family and friends asking many unanswered questions. All the efforts they had made were all in vain. They wished that she could have at least tasted the sweetness of a graduation gown. She worked hard for four years to live her dreams and never got to reach the finishing line. We pray for her soul to rest with God.
