Was wondering about the years that I have spent on this planet. Amidst these misty roads and freezing cold breeze, when I was walking through the blinding fog,my mind was wandering through the yesteryears… I went places from my previous job to my childhood days to my parent’s home to my courtship days with H and to lot of friends and the time spent with them all these years..all this travelling in my thoughts !
I realized that there are so many people in my life who have done good to me,directly or indirectly. This also reminded me of one of the chapters from Mitch Albom’s book- The 5 people you meet in heaven. It says that many people’s lives are entwined with ours. We might not know it right then but somewhere in our life’s journey we will come to know how we all are related. Birth and Death are prominent reasons of our entire being. And we will come to know why we were born when we were and why did we die when we will !
Out of these thoughts that crossed my mind this morning, I thought of my maternal grandmother [I have mentioned about her in my old posts as well] She is really a pure soul I have come across in my entire life. She is incomparable to anyone that I know. So,first thing that came into my mind was she has done so much for me..26 years that I know of and remember and rest 3 years that I might not remember clearly..she has contributed so much to my whole being…I have been always close to her than anyone..yeah a bit less to my mother too..sometimes people wonder,really,that I’m not so close to my mom as I’m to my grand mom…I think that doesn’t mean that I don’t love my mom or vice versa or I don’t share things with her and all..In fact me and mom are friends..and I love that relationship as well…but with grand ma..it’s out of this world..
I think I need to do something for her..to give her some more love and understanding..to tell her that I realize what all she has done for me and how much love she keeps showering on me…I want to be grateful to her…and when I say ‘do something for her’ that doesn’t mean monetarily or something big to show off my love and care..But something like spending some time with her and talking and reading her some books that now strain her old eyes etc. I think tiny things in life make people smile and feel happy and wanted. Now at this particular age…grand parents really look forward to their grand-children’s success,happiness and to meet them. Little things make them happy..and that’s what I’m going to do once I’m back. Fortunately my g-mom lives in the same city that I live in and hence I think I have luck on my side to do things I’m planning to 🙂
Wise thinking hai na ?…may be Dehradoon weather helped 😉 hehehehe…
