TANYA'S RECOVERY IS ON THE WAY: SHORT STORY BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


It was a dreary afternoon when Tanya passed by the office to ask for directions.
"Good afternoon, I just arrived from Marseilles and I wish to enrol my child in Prep, is it here?"
The receptionist warmly replied, "O' no, the school is opposite that road, please see Mr. Wally,
the Principal."  "Thanks, I appreciate it."  Diana, the volunteer asked Tanya, "May I get your
name so that we could invite you for a Parish dinner."  Tanya replied, "Certainly, I live just a block from here and I live with my husband and five children."  Diana said, "Welcome aboard!"

Tanya was full of joy!  She did not yet have friends in the community, so she thought this is
a good start.  Well, Tanya is looking forward for the Parish dinner!  One day of November,
with a raincoat and a huge umbrella, she arrived at the foyer of the House.  All of the people
were all smiles and the the one In-Charge warmly sat on her feet!  Tanya beamed and
the night sweeped like a trail of surprises and beacons a great hope for her and her eldest son, Darren.

After three years of a paradise regained in this place, she is about to experience an unforgettable
situation.  Remember Diana, a blonde lady with this streak of irrationality:  her true color emerged!
Just like an innocent lamb, she now started to be envious of Tanya because of her affable nature
that led her to be dubbed as "The Rose of the Innocent Garden."  Tanya is a vivacious lady that
is always the life of the party.  But, Diana is not happy!  She is jealous!!!

So, the ordeal begun!  Diana ranted once, "Haven't you called Gina, the old lady to be picked
up?"  Tanya replied, "She is not home when I rung!"  Diana replied, "So, you should have went to her place!"  But Tanya retorted, "You know, it is not good to go to one's house without informing them,
you know that!"  Diana shouted, "You should have known better!  Pathetic!!!"

For a period of three years, Diana was negative of Tanya.  After this period of time, Tanya
developed a phobia of her.  Whenever she is about to meet the nasty lady, she had this
unexplainable goose bumps and fear.  She avoided as much as possible to encounter her,
but Tanya is not always successful.  To make matters worst, Diana discredit her all over
the place that she lost even her most faithful confidante.

Sometimes, Tanya will burst into tears with no reason at all.  Later, she was diagnosed with anxiety
disorder.  Her husband noticed her loss of stamina and zeal!  Darrel blurted once, "What is
happening to you; you seemed to have lost your memory!"  Tanya responded in a shabby way,
"Nothing, I am just getting older."

After another year, Tanya is already like a volcano erupting.  Now she knows, the limit has
been reached.  For the first time, she lost her temper on Diana.  She got angry, but that is
only the tip of the iceberg.  She lost herself, an identity crisis! 

Finally, she decided to leave the place.  She said to herself, "I got sick here and never will I
recover from years of bullying if I still remain here." She left Diamond Creek and moved to
the Bowman's Valley.

Bowman's Valley is at the western end of the state.  It has a lush vegetation and flowering
trees.  Tanya just loved the place.  It took her another two and a half years to recover.
She became more confident!  Darrel came once with a box of chocolates, "How's my lovely
princess, all smiles and full of life?"  Tanya smiled, " I am alright, thanks to the Lord for
leading me to Bowman's Valley!"  Come, I have prepared a banquet for you!" 

Darrel chuckled, "You really like to make me fat, so no women will look at me."  Tanya
retorted, "That's a part of the plan, how did you know?"  And they burst into laughter...

Morale:  Bullying is an insidous attitude!  It destroys people, but recovery is still possible.
The best thing to do is to confront oneself, be aware of the plight, move away from the
situation, then ask for help!  The healing process takes time, but it will happen through
God's grace and through one's willingness to be healed.
 


MOTHER'S DAY MESSAGE: BY REV. FR. MATHEW ZACHARIAH

( We are blessed to have a loving and powerful mother's day message from our patron Rev. Fr.Mathew Zachariah, Colorado. Our publication is lucky to have writers and patrons who shower their support and blessings to make this publication a very valuable one for our respected readers. What a meaningful and blessed message we have in this Mother's day from our Achen))New World
In America, the second Sunday in May is set aside to honor mothers.Most of the phone calls made in a year, are on Mother's Day. The reason for this is because anyone who has experienced the love, care and sacrifice of a mother can never forget it. According to the Bible, Adam and Eve are the only ones who did not have a mother.It is very beautiful for America to set apart a day to honor its beloved mothers. Most mothers get very little credit or appreciation from their families. Let us reflect on the life of an average mother. A good percentage of today's mothers work outside the home. In spite of this, when this tired mom comes home from work, she has to go directly into the kitchen. In most cases, if the father is at home, he will be relaxing watching television, on the computer, or reading some paper. Very seldom does this hard working mother get a helping hand, a compliment or a thank you note from her family. More often than not, she does not complain, for her satisfaction comes from taking care of her family.It is an amazing thing to see the influence of a godly mother in her children's lives. Her unconditional love and dedication give them confidence, acceptance, security, and understanding to love and care for others. She is there when her children need a word of comfort, a loving touch, a warm hug and most importantly apatient and listening ear. A good Christian mother never takes a back seat in instructing her children to love and trust God and Hisbeloved Son Jesus Christ. Abraham Lincoln said, "No man is poorwho has a godly mother."I remember a story I read a while back. William McKinley, lawyer,congressman, governor of Ohio, and president of the United States,had a close relationship with his dear mother. He either visited her or sent a message to her every day. When she became seriously ill, he arranged to have a special train standing by, ready to take him to her bedside. Mrs. McKinley died December 12, 1897, in the arms of her 54-year old son. Her gentleness and Christian virtues helped to mold the president's character. About 4 years later, when he was gunned down in Buffalo, New York, he showed no bitterness toward his assassin. With Christian courage he said, "God's will be done." Before he died, he asked to hear once again the hymn "Nearer, My God, to Thee" which his mother had taught him.About 700 B.C., King Lemuel, while reflecting on what his mother had taught him, wrote the following, "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm all the days of her life... She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy... Her children arise and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praises her; many women do noble things, but you surpass them all... a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." (Proverbs 31)Once I heard a man says these words about why he does not join with his children in honoring his wife on Mother's Day, "My mother is dead." Then pointing his finger to his wife, he said, "she is my wife, not my mother." When hearing this, I responded, "True, but she is the mother of your children." The Psalmist describes the blessed man who fears the Lord, "Blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house, your sons will be like olive shoots around your table." (Psalm 128:2-3)My own dear mother has gone from this world to be with her Lord.Although it has been many years now, I still have sweet memories of her. On Mother's Day while I remember my mother, I honor my wife for all the sacrifices she makes for my family. Perhaps you too have been blessed with a godly mother. May you have time to reflect on those precious memories of her, who for all those years prayed for your bright future and godly life. Let all our mothers know this Mother's Day that we love and appreciate them for what they have done for us. Beloved Mothers, WE SALUTE YOU! Dear God, bless all our mothers who are living today, and comfort all who are in your presence.
 Amen.
Fr. M. M. ZachariahColorado

POEM: BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL BERNARDO

( New World is proud to have very talented and gifted writers. Cynthia is known to all of us. Her poems has adored our New World many times.Here is another jewel for our New World family's treasure chest of literature. Thanks Cynthia)


This poem is dedicated to my maiden's family.


Do you remember the days?
Droplets of rain that daze
Shivering yet full of mirth
Clinkering footsteps with dirt.

Laughter roar the road,
Leah, my ears almost deaf!
Voice on tenor adrift...
Seems music on aboard.

Charmine, your fingers tickle,
Ere!, that's my weakness
Annoying yet with duress,
Melodious voice mesmerizes.

At doorstep,
Mother asked,
Why so late, my brood
We played by the rain blast,

Are you upset with mood?
Dad arrived so swiftly,
Why so wet, my lily?
Oh! the rain was heavy,

Chuckles and giggles so naughty!
Maruja laid the table,
All ready, my manor
Edwin said grace,

With a tinge of lace.
A family I remember
A home by the letter
Where the Lord is the centre

Humor abide with ember.

Leah, a queen by beauty,
Charmine, the princess lady,
But their hearts were gold,
Gold of Ophir by my word!

I consulted a bright new doctor in town. My arm is always painful. I said, "Doctor, please examine my arm. He looked at my arm, he brought out a medical book and studied it for ten minutes.
He said to me. "Have you ever had this pain before?"
I said, "Yes."
He said, "Well, you got it again."

The moon shines at night

The sun shines in the day

The sun shines in light

The moon shines in dark

The cloud comes before rain

The rainbow comes in day.
