Ka lost both of her parents, and the holidays are a particularly difficult time for her. She longs to feel their presence and to celebrate with them, but that is no longer possible. So when she saw an elderly couple at a mosque in Sendayan, Seremban, she decided to approach them for a few pictures.
At first glance, it seemed like a typical photo opportunity, but there was more to it than that. You see, Ka wanted to feel her parents' presence on the morning of Raya, and the couple reminded her of them.
She didn't know whose parents they were, but she was grateful for the chance to capture a moment with them.
"I don't know whose parents they are, but thank you for the opportunity," Ka said. "I randomly approached them to ask for permission to take some pictures, and it was a chance to feel my parents. I wanted to be able to look back at these pictures and remember that moment."
Although it's never easy to cope with the loss of a loved one, we're so glad that Ka was able to fulfill her wish thanks to the kindness of the elderly couple. They may not have known it at the time, but they brought comfort to a grieving heart.
This heartwarming story reminds us to cherish the time we have with our parents and to express our love while we still can. We never know how much time we have with our loved ones, so it's important to make the most of every moment.
So, as you celebrate with your family this holiday season, take a moment to appreciate their presence and let them know how much they mean to you.
And who knows, maybe you'll make someone else's day by spreading a little joy and love.
