Joe returns to his family in Christmas only to find no one exists. He is an Army Man and his wife Jene is a bright young lady, full of enthusiasm, romantic and would love full interaction.. His 6 year old kid Bob is mischievous and loves to keep singing songs.
Joe is wonder struck. Where could they be.. No intimation..
He uses the spare key to enter the house..
Joe looks at the left over dishes and realizes the family just left..
Joe tries reaching Jene and finds the phone switched off. He reaches out to all his friends and still is clue less.
Joe is patiently waiting and decides to go to Church for the prayers.. There too he is not able to trace out his family…
Joe gets nervous. It is 2 am.. He gets fully worried…
Joe realizes that in all those 10 years, he hardly spent time with his wife. Army life leads to spending time in unknown terrain.. Full of threats.. He realizes that even to send an email, he had to go through various processes. He wonders how a wife can spend time without a man for so many days… Is she got a new boy friend? Is Bob left somewhere? All kind of negative thoughts keep ringing his mind..
It is 4 am.. He is now fully tensed.. and decides to call his relatives to check if Jene is available..
Again not available
What could she be doing with kid at such late hours..
He is annoyed, tensed, worried, angry with life..
He reads the verses ‘Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.’
He reads the verses ‘let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband’
Going crazy with all type of thoughts, he feels defeated in personal life..
It is 7 am… and he is almost lost.. He goes to Church again and looks upward..
‘Why you did this to me? Why.. As a true person, i always remained committed to her.. but..’
Till then from behind Jene reaches out to him..
Jene ‘Hey dear hubby.. why you look lost’
Joe turns around and finds Jene.. beautiful, happy and he looks at her with resent..
Joe ‘Where were you yesterday?’
Jene ‘Hey started a small venture of managing parties for households.. and it has grown.. Had to organize around 8 parties yesterday.. .I made around US$10000 yesterday’
Joe looks surprised..
Joe ‘Why didn’t you tell me.. Any reasons’
Jene ‘You would have doubted me if I ever informed you that i organize night parties.. and typically people mistake them to be different. I typically organized parties for celebrities and high net worth individuals. Most likely it will get funded too’
Joe ‘Where is Rob?’
Jene ‘Rob just woke up.. I gifted him loads of gift by having you as Santa… ‘
Joe ‘I want to meet Rob’
Jene takes him to a beautiful house where Rob is sleeping
Joe ‘Whose is this house?’
Jene ‘Dear Joe.. Ours.. Have taken this new house and hope you are happy’
Joe hugs Jane,,
Joe ‘So many negative thoughts flashed my mind.. I almost thought I had lost my family.. and then reached out to Church to confess that my profession made me neglect my wife but what could I do.. Defense is a profession where families remain always separated because of serving bigger cause.. National cause..
but just 1 day.. in 1 night.. God taught me Faith..
Faith is belief and if our belief is positive, things will get positive always and faith is what I remained faithful to. I looked upward and said ‘Jene is only mine.. No one can snatch her from me ever’
Jene kisses Joe and whispers ‘Let us do something for families of defense too’
Jene ‘Plan to raise funds and start a venture fund for army women to promote entrepreneurship’
Joe ‘Who is your mentor?’
Jene ‘Peter a 60 year old gentle man and his wife Louisa.. Both guide me ever since I set a party for them.. My first assignment’
Joe ‘I am surprised, happy, delighted, annoyed, crazy and still coping up with a night of loneliness and day of togetherness’
