A Blessing in Disguise.


I had too many things on my mind that day.

But that’s an excuse. What I did could’ve had serious repercussions.

It was plain bad luck that I had moved a few meters ahead and he saw me.

But then he was right.

I am usually so responsible.

But I was guilty, after all in life you can’t undo a mistake.

It was just that I hadn’t strapped little Sia into a car seat.

But I will never forget the lesson I learnt when the judge made me write a mock obituary for the child. Truly a blessing in disguise.
