I woke up early and took a shower then left for work...I was feeling under so much that it distracted me from my work. It was only during the long break I realised that I didn't pack my lunch...I went to the HOD of languages office to get my phone from the charger. I was in my own bubble that I didn't realize that I was crying it was when I felt a hand on my shoulder that I realized that I wasn't alone and the tears were now streaming down my face..

Me: mam khosa sorry I didn't realize there's someone here ...I just came to get my phone...I should get going

Mam K:mam Chauke are you ok? They say a problem shared is a problem solved

Me: am okay mam really...it's just that..I

*I just broke down and cried*

Mam: let it all our dear let it out...

I cried till I had hiccups from crying then after a while I began calming down.

Me: my mother in law insults me for not being able to give my husband a child.. we've been married for 5 years but still there is no child in our marriage I feel as though am not woman enough. Why is God punishing me..what is it that am not doing right..what is that I don't have that other woman have...

Mam K: God's timing is always best..see we can never understand God's way of doing things.. sometimes what we want for ourselves isn't what God has planned for us. But trust me you are woman enough very  much of a woman.

Me: but why am I not a mother..why can't I fall pregnant..

Mam K: right now you sound so pressured to have this baby..are you doing it for your mother in law or  for yourself..sit down and ask yourself that. When you are doing it for yourself then trust me stressing about it won't make you fall pregnant quickly. And my dear this is the time to use your knees..

Mfazi you have to pray..tell Father God your problems tell him that you can't do this on your own you need him..okay..now stand up and wipe those tears of yours and smile and do what you do best..

Me: *i smiled* teaching...thank you soo much mam I needed to hear that

Mam K:"cast your burdens on the Lord and he shall sustain you..he shall never permit the righteous to be moved.. Psalm 55:22

Me: will keep that in mind. Thank you I should get going.

I left the office a bit better I guess I needed that...

When I woke up Luu had already left before I went to the office I tried calling her but her phone was off...I guess this thing was really hitting her hard than I ever imagined. I called Pamela to the office to..

Pam: sir you called me

Me: uhm yes..Pam can you please be a darling and book me a table at a nice restaurant around Hydepark 

Pam: mmmm taking the madam out I see...ok sir I will do that. What time must I book it for..ow should we send her flowers while we added

Me: 8pm will do and yes that would be lovely..can they deliver them at her workplace before 4 pm.

Pam: roses or...

Me:lilies please she loves them...

Pam: ok sir I will get right to it..and oh sir Mr Resow called and said he will be here around three but I told him will get back to him because I saw that you have a meeting in 30 with Mrs Williams about her divorce in Sandton knowing the time that woman takes will you be comfortable with the meeting with Mr Resow..

Me: I had forgotten about Mrs Williams.since am going to Sandton I might as well pass by his offices. Please let him know that I will personally go to him..thank you..

Pam: ok sir right on it but you have to leave now if you want to make it to the other meeting early.

Pam left the office and I tried my wife's phone again before I went out and it rang this time around ..

Me: ndoni yam
