“It is clear to everyone that adolescence is the beginning of the process of enjoying things. Sadly, I didn’t get that enjoyment. Because I am the only child of my mother. The lack of siblings has made my responsibility more difficult. Aside from doing all the work of the house, I’m always trying to keep my mother from being bored with that loneliness. Living in a house without waiting for a father to come back in the evenings is not easy! But in spite of all the misery, having a kind mother makes me thankful. She has raised and educated me in a way that only God can reward her for that. Whenever I’m bored and tired, I remind myself of the times when my mother didn’t say no for anything I asked. So I won’t feel tired as long as she is alive. I remember complaining about a job once, and a man asked, “Is your mother still alive?” I said yes. “So you must not complain about life,” he said. I did not understand that at the time. Now I know how hopeful his answer is”.
