A story for Jumma, about rice and that path that I didn't take

Anything can trigger a memory from the past and for me it was the mention of rice. Twenty years ago, in my younger days, when I was free and very single, I was offered a job as a nanny with a well known rice manufactures. At the time of going to the actual interview I wasn't aware of their high status, as the agency didn't mention it, I was young and very naive, still am today. I went to the interview with two of my friends, in my small car that just about made it there. It was in a small village in London, we entered the house and made ourselves comfortable, as I'm a very natural person.The family immediately took a liking to me and offered me the job on the spot as I got on with their children. In the package they included a flat of my own and it was nice. But in those days, I wasn't this strong women that you see today and I was scared of change. I could have taken the risk, as I was alone in london and living in this one bedroom bedsit. I did have a job already too, in an hotel and I was coping financially. But I was scared to leave the friends that I had made, as I didn't really now of these people that wanted to employ me. They really desperately wanted me, as they kept phoning me and at the time I was too naive to understand why they would want me so much. I was loving in them days too as you master the art of hiding your problems and it's called having two lives. 

You see in life, our creator has given us that free will and many choices, different paths that we are able to choose from. If I had chosen to take that job, I wouldn't have met my hubby and had my lovely boys. I would have being on a completely different journey, as to what I am on today. 

"Life is a journey of many choices and each step that we take will lead us to a different path"

Jumma Mubarak and have a blessed friday.
