Choosing Ignorance For Love

What makes the world go round? They say that God created the world for his most loved creation a place to thrive. And God is love. Love, therefore, makes the world go round.

Wait a minute. Isn’t it the reason why the earth behaves as it is is because of its relative position to the sun… the so-called gravitational pull? At least that’s what my science teacher says. Is love, therefore, an effect of gravity?

Idiotic you say?

Love, I believe, is a force to be reckoned with. To be respected and handled with great thinking. It can bring into our lives immense happiness and content. In moments of despair, love can give us the emotional strength to hold. It is the most beautiful thing one can probably have in his lifetime.

Alas as with all great things that exist, if taken for granted, love can diminish you into shame – regretting that second you chose to be an idiot.

Ok, that maybe a bit too harsh to describe someone. If only I can think of a softer term.

When it comes to growing up in a family, a child cannot choose who to love as a mother or as a father. But when it comes to raising one, anyone is free to choose anyone to raise it with as long as it is within bounds of their religion and morality. Another significant outlook to consider is the capacity to sustain growth, more so - financially.

But when these two factors are deliberately ignored in favor of climactic pleasure, it’s a disaster in the making.

Recently, for fear of complications, we let go of an unmarried nanny who has been with us for just a month. After coming from her day-off, we asked her to defrost our ref for the first time. Midway, she unobtrusively ran out of the house. Later she found vomiting for no apparent reasons. She then positively admitted she was pregnant - by her boyfriend - her first cousin even!

What on earth? Why would c-c-cousins…? Eew... crazy!

Other than informing us that her cousin accompanied her that same day for check-up, we didn’t bother asking anything else.
