Reunited with Kids after 9 years.
And today we complete 1 month of staying together,
And this is forever till we leave our body,
Or till the kids get married or go for further education.
Facing all the ups and downs,
My kids and i have evolved a better version,
And the journey goes on with God's grace,
Which we are now strong to face.
Everything in life is cyclic,
That what goes down, comes up.
The night becomes day.
As said in Bhagwad Geeta shloka, chapter 2, shloka 14:
मात्रास्पर्शास्तु कौन्तेय शीतोष्णसुखदुःखदाः।
Meaning: Sad times and happy times are like summer season and winter season.
They go and they come and everything is impermanent.
So just have patience.
Nine years ago, I took my kids and separated from husband after he hit me on the road and after the 16 years of long testing, lying and hopeless relationship. Then the kids were taken away from my place when I was on the job and I was left alone. For seven years, it was difficult life but the most useful time to teach us our lessons of life and making us who we are. Years of staying alone, years of bearing my kids negative behaviour who were turned against me, male chauvinist society, the female is labelled and blamed, etc etc. But God is there. Since last 2 years kids knew the truth and we got connected back. We used to hide and meet because otherwise kids would be harassed if it was known that we met.
The last one month we have been staying together and it has been with loads of untoward situations. We visited several dozens of times to the police stations, to CP, to advocates, to court etc. However, the main place which supported and saved us, is the temple within. We had loads of emotional blackmails, threats with words of extremities, facing goons etc, but with our God's grace and our love and bonding with each other, we got the strength and courage to face everything and everyone with love in heart.
There is justice in God's court.
The man made court and system doesn't matter.
God tested our patience and increased our faith and patience too.
So thankful to God for all the lessons He taught,
For all lovely, real, true, divine people, situations and things He bought our way,
And so thankful for the lovely and adorable kids.
