Sanita was a good student and good daughter. She studied hard but always found time to help her parents.
Her mother and father were very proud of her. Every day they felt blessed that their daughter was so kind and thoughtful.
When Sanita graduated from medical school, her parents held a big party in her honour. There was music and flowers and delicious food. Everyone praised Sanita and she was very happy.
When she was offered a job in a big hospital, Sanita was thrilled. She worked very hard and loved helping people recover from illness. However, as the years passed, a sadness came over her. She saw happy families everywhere, happy wives and mothers, and Sanita felt lonely. Every day she thought about her sisters, having babies and taking care of their husbands. Sanita sat at home each night, alone with her medical files and case notes. She knew she should be grateful for her career and her wonderful life. But she shed lonely tears when no one was watching.
One day, in the hospital, a young man, Rhaoul, brought his two small sisters to see Sanita. His story was so sad. His parents had died and he was taking care of the little ones. They were beautiful girls but had both been ill with tummy upsets. Although Sanita could see that their brother loved them dearly, she knew that these little girls needed clean clothes and healthy meals. And lots of motherly love. She asked the young man if he would allow her to take care of the little ones. He agreed immediately.
And so it was, that every day Sanita counted her blessings as she sang to the little girls and took care of their every need. Her house was filled with happy chatter and laughter. Every day their older brother brought her flowers and worked hard at his job.
One day the young man asked Sanita to marry him. Sanita cried tears of joy.
Her dreams had come true.
