Wasima (Photo credit: since1968)
Wasima and her mother lived in a tiny hut. They had very little money for food and clothing. The mother saved money to buy her daughter a dainty silver set. On her wedding day she wore it. Her friends and family were spellbound,they never saw such a pretty bride!
There are times when we think ‘Silence is Golden’. I feel these words are not always practical in real life situation. I’ll tell you why I’m saying that.
One of my classmates in London , remarked, ‘Sabeth you’ll never have enemies you hardly speak’. ‘Not so, I told him, they think I’m too proud’.
This is one example of silence,the other is people think they can easily tell you off. Silence to them means the person is stupid.
Third example is the one where you do everything you’re asked in return you’re yelled at.
The third example is what I’ll deal with today. My husband asked me to cut his hair one day. He had all the barber’s tools. The only problem was I never trained to be a barber. I told him I did not think I could do it. He assured me it’s simple.
So I took the role of a barber but had no experience. I took on the job and started cutting his hair. I spent about ten minutes when my husband suddenly yelled at me,what was my fault, according to him I was moving too much. I completely lost it I was so angry I thought I’d start crying. I cannot recall if I wept,but I certainly let him know what I thought of his behavior.
My husband was shocked to see me so angry. He had a smile on his face. His expression was enough for me to know he could not believe I’d be this angry.
