Life Is An Art

                                         THE BLIND WOMAN

Good day lovely fans of the Nitty Wall and welcome to another fantastic episode of the 'Life is an Art' segment.
I left early from work yesterday so that I could meet up with a fast car and leave for Lagos. I wanted to visit home and I didn't want to arrive there late. I boarded a taxi to the park but I had to wait for the passengers to fill up the vehicle. We were just two in number and the driver came over.
"Please, would you mind if I pick a woman up from the hospitality department. She's blind and can't see".
"Okay". We agreed and he drove over to the place.
It took minutes for the woman to come out and when she did, an elderly man supported her along with her loads. She was put to sit down and she greeted everyone cheerfully.
"I'm really sorry for keeping you waiting passengers". She apologized in yoruba.
Then she handed a loaf of bread to the driver, apologizing for giving him just a loaf. The driver handed her a change of six hundred naira and she insisted on not collecting.
"This is too much ma".
"No it's not. Keep it". She insisted.
Just when we were about leaving, she called two of her co-workers to join us in the car.
"It looks like it is about to rain. I can feel its coolness on my skin. It must probably  be raining somewhere now". She said.
The blind woman was very happy, cheerful and very energetic. She kept talking and laughing to her co-workers on our way.
Mid-way, she paid for herself and her co-workers. The driver then became really adamant on not collecting.
"Please driver, I beg you in the name of God. You have to collect this".
The driver accepted after much plea. What amazed me about the blind woman was that unlike the rest of us, she was too happy.
Sight is one of the most precious assets bestowed on us by God. Can you imagine yourself without seeing? Just close your eyes for a second and imagine being dark, completely lost from the natural surroundings and the wonderfulness of nature. That's what it feels like to be blind.
Okay, you're not blind. Thank God for that. Have you ever appreciated the gift of your sight, your being able to walk, stand and perform the daily activities without being handicapped. Have you ever wondered what it feels like when people look at you in pity?
Well, it's time we get to appreciate the precious gifts we take for granted. It's a big treasure to see, to walk... and so on. Whenever you feel sad, remember the blind woman. She might be blind but in her heart is the spirit of contentment, happiness and generosity.
Always Thank God for His numerous blessings on you because it is indeed a gift of life.
Life is an art. It is very beautiful and lovely. Although, behind those lovely designs are mistakes and errors. Life is not always the way we want it to be but it is our duty to make ourselves happy.
Remember that life is very short to be unhappy. So forgive quickly, love truly and never forget anything that made you smile!!!

A/N: I cannot keep calm!!! Okay, I would. I had decided to take a long break but here I am, posting on the 'Life is An Art' segment. What can I say, it's great to be here again.
Love by Fate novel series may have ended but it's not over. Apart from having another part (which will be out pretty soon), Love and Fate is launching a Question and Answer segment where it answers the burning questions of its fans. I hope you look forward to learning more about the 'Love By Fate' stars.
Ramadhan Kareem to Muslims all over the world. I wish you all the best( myself inclusive) in the blessed month.

Have a lovely Saturday. The Nitty Wall loves you more than you can ever imagine!
