An Other Mother

The mother of a dear friend of mine is in the hospital with no apparent respite to her condition in sight. I’ve known this friend of mine for half my life (not that great an achievement considering my age I suppose) and her mum was always a big part of that relationship. She always had my best interests at heart, always asking how I was doing in school, whether I’d gotten a job or a girlfriend yet.

I had a dream that my friend was the one in critical condition and her mum was perfectly fine. I don’t pray for that of course, but I wonder what, if anything beyond my brain trying to make sense of the events of the day, it meant.

I make du’a for God to forgive her and relieve her suffering when I can.
