How they revealed the surprise??

One of our VERY close friends, who are our neighbors also (until we move to our new house), had a secret/good news to reveal. Girls birthday was a month ago still she called all the friends & said she wants to give a party for her birthday. Everyone, kind of had an idea that this is not the party for her birthday. When we all reached their home first thing they said was – its cake cutting time!!!Β  As soon as the cake box was opened, this is what the cake said:


(sorry for blurred picture, was able to at least click it in the crowd lol)

Isn’t it a superb idea to reveal that they are pregnant? πŸ™‚ Of course, being close friends, PK & I already knew this secret but for everyone else present there, they were first confused for few minutes & staring at the cake & then they started congratulating the couple.

This girl lost her job & was made redundant about four months back. She was my train companion. We used to wait for each other at train station & then chat for whole 45 minutes in train till we reach for work. One morning she was not at the station, I asked her where she was?? She replied that she won’t be my train companion anymore, she has lost her job. I was very sad 😦

PK & I went to their place on the same evening, she was totally shattered.

1) They were about to buy land for their house but without her job no bank will approve their home loan. 2) She earned lot more than her husband, I am not putting this in negative way, it doesn’t matter who earns how much when we are talking about couple but to them it was big issue as how will they manage the expenses?? 3) They were just thinking of planning family just when this redundancy happened!!

Out of all this she was ready to let go the land.

She was ready to survive on whatever income her husband gets.

But she was not ready to give break in their family planning. Should she find another job & then plan family?? How many more months she has to wait till she finds job?? Her words were – β€œit’s very hard to give a break my motherly feelings.. I am so ready for baby, I cannot postpone it now”

She was looking for job desperately, her husband trying to get loan for land on his own income. They felt everything was falling apart but you know what happened next???

After few weeks, she found out she was pregnant. In fact she was pregnant at the time when she was made redundant from her job but she did not had idea at that time. And you won’t believe but they have got their loan as well & are soon to start construction.

She is at home now relaxing & enjoying every moment of her pregnancy. No stressful train travels while she is pregnant. No work load. She is on phone most of the time with her family members back in India. Their house is about to take shape. Her husband is doing extra hours work at his job. He comes home from work & cooks for her as she cannot cook due to strong smell of masalas & all. he says that looking at his wife all relaxed & happy takes out all his tiredness & he becomes happy. In short, everything fell in its place at the end πŸ™‚

Once they were thinking God has snatched away all their happiness, all their planning was unsuccessful but God had planned something more beautiful for them.

Believe in God πŸ™‚
