I am standing in my terrace, looking at the lady with a pallid face and sad eyes.
I am wondering ‘what is she thinking?’
Probably wondering about her kids who must be living in far away land, may be waiting for her husband to come back..
I couldn’t help myself from wondering ‘Is a job of a woman to wait for her husband or children?’
When was the last time, she smiled to herself?
Is there any felicity in her sad eyes?
Is she happy with the choices and sacrifices that she has made throughout her life?
And the most important Q – ‘when was the last time someone appreciated her?’
Now, I ask myself–
When was the last time when I appreciated my mother for keeping my bed clean, for serving food even before I ask, for showering love and kindness?’
A simple observation can open channels.
I read it somewhere ‘open your mind before you open your mouth’ but we should open our mouth to thank our mom/spouses.
Remember: everyone appreciates a compliment.
Be kind and compassionate..
