As the floor invites fallen crumbling biscuits.
Mouth is going to scold
Hands are going to whack
Just invite it into our minds
Let our minds accept it.
Let the fire cools down
Let our hearts be patient.
This will not happen forever.
It is just a while.
One day, it will be just a memory.
A memory that will bring a smile.
Remember, we are once like them before.
How do our parents react?
They are patient.

Upon observing ants took the fallen crumbling biscuits on the floor, suddenly the words, “Inviting ants” came to my mind. As I wrote it down, the above first paragraph came to my mind. Knowing that it is not completed, I kept on returned to it until 11 November the above piece is finally completed.
Why do I use the word “invite”? When we give birth, it is where we invite our babies from our womb to this world. As babies are still learning, we need to be patient with them. Whenever they eat by themselves, some food or biscuits may fell onto the ground. We ever went through that process, but had forgotten it. My mother is someone whom I admire and respects the most because she teaches and guides me with patience since young until adulthood. I thank the Lord for such a mother and I’m thankful and grateful for her time and effort.
The apostle Paul mentioned in his epistle for his gratefulness to those who labour for the sake of the gospel, which can be found in the book of Romans chapter 16.
