Remember my cuz who spat the dummy on me few weeks ago on the phone? I wrote about it in the blogpost The Sound Of Silence. Eversince that day we never talked again until yesterday when I had to ring her due to an emergency. Her house was broken into...some of her valuables have been stolen, including her flash plasma TV, brandnew notebook, some jewellery etc etc. I heard the news from my mum and I just had to ring her. I felt so sorry for my cuz and I could only imagine the horror she went through when she came back from work to find out her front door broken and things taken. She was pretty upset on the phone, not because she lost things, but cos of the fear of knowing some stranger had been in her house and the fear of him returning. What do you do in a situation like this? Well, she's contacted the Police, immediatley installed a new alarm system and changed locks etc. But what do you do about the fear? Besides, she's pregnant with her first baby and I do feel really bad for her.
But one good thing happened from this break-in. I got a chance to call her and we immediately got back together as we were before...inseparable cousins that is :). It's amazing how we both didn't say anything about the last time we spoke on the phone. We just continued as if nothing bad happened bewteen us...not that we had to force ourselves to forget that either. It just happened. Some people are so easy to forgive and she's one such dear cuz of mine. And you know, my heart is made of glass...it breaks so very easily. And when I heard my cuz's house was broken into, my heart broke into pieces and even without my knowledge, I was dialling her cell number to find out if she was ok. And I'm glad that nobody was hurt...things can be replaced, but people can't be. When something like this happens, it makes you want to shake yourself into reality...the reason I didn't speak to her all this time was cos she yelled at me that last time we were on the phone and I doubted if it would be such a great idea to call her until I felt better. But if something had happened to her yesterday during that break-in, imagine how much I'd have suffered due to to my stubborness and arrogance. Life has a way of reminding you not to stay angry for too long...not to put off telling people you love and care about them. I'm so glad my cuz is ok! As for my BREAKING heart, I'm glad I have one such heart too...or else I'd be feeling awkward to ring her even yesterday. Yep, so a house gets BROKEN into, it becomes BREAKING news in the family and a distant heart suddenly starts BREAKING too :). You've just got to love someone...that's why!
Have a good one guys! And hey each time your heart breaks, be glad it's breakable, cos that means you truly FEEL.
