I have slept on the sofa with a book on my head and lights turned on till the next morning. There were days when we skipped meals, forgot all about food or simply didn’t care about eating. Once, dinner didn’t strike us until 11 pm. We had to search for late night home delivery food services and finally the pizza boy knocked our door at 12. I wouldn’t proudly justify that I lived my life the way I wanted to. As a matter of fact, I lived without a way to do it then. Life before motherhood didn’t have a structure. It didn’t have a system. It had most of the essential ingredients of life. Yet, it wasn’t right somewhere.
“Sorry ma,” he said, with an apprehension of whether his sorry would get accepted. In a moment’s time, I came back to my calm-self. Waiting for this signal from me, he jumped onto my lap and hugged me tight. “I will be a good boy,” his voice echoed into my ears. What magic in this warmth!
She gave us our name. It’s time we made her a part of it!
This Mother’s Day add your mom’s name to yours on Facebook, Twitter or WhatsApp and give her what’s #RightfullyHers
I don’t know if we began somewhere or if we will ever end somewhere. Again the eternity of it doesn’t matter.
Which sounds right? Curse it and wear it as a burden? Or keep it away and regard it as sacred? I know I did the right thing!
The first time she posted a birthday wish on someone’s timeline was like this:
Hope this finds you in good health and cheer. Wishing you a happy birthday.
By Your’s Loving,
😆 A perfect example of an encounter of the ‘Letter Writing’ generation with the Facebook generation.
When I look back, the people with whom, I could always be the most of my self, are those little friends who fought with me for toys, as a child. They know not just me; but my family, my weaknesses, my dislikes and everything not-so-beautiful about my other side. And yet, we have remained the best of friends! Such kinds of friendships do travel along our lives, no matter how far we go away from each other, no matter how big a change life seems to throw upon us and no matter how seemingly successful or less successful we become of our lives.
