1st November 2011:
It was almost a year since the opening of Al Jalila Children's Speciality Hospital. The Emir's youngest and beloved daughter's birthday who he named the hospital after. his dear aunt was persisting him to take her to visit the hospital, she said today will be a great day so they had to go today. Sheikha Shamsa was an old crone but fiesty and a wise woman of 92. She was stubborn and manipulative, but not in a negative way, she believed in her gut feeling always she made her decisions mostly on them. Today she forced her nephew who is the king of Dubai the melting pot of culture to take her to the hospital without any announcement. She knew that the life of an Emir is not easy and making time for such unannounced trip was not fair on her behalf. But being a loving and respectful nephew he was, without another word he took her.
They reached the hospital and although it was a last minute announcement, everything was set and prepared to receive the royals.
They began with meeting a certain amount of chief doctors and then were taken for a tour of the hospital where they discussed future projects etc.
As they were nearing the general children's ward they could hear laughter, within instant Mohammed knew the kids were having a good time. As the group entered the laughter died down. A young woman in scrubs and the hospital coat whose back was facing him turned around....and for a while maybe just for a while time stopped for Mohammed and Shamsa. He tried hard to control himself from letting his mouth drop open from the shock he felt...
He never thought he would see her again after 54years....
