Writing upon this theme is always a lovely experience and so full of colors! Mother is truly a blessing and a luxury, which all of us can’t afford. There are people who are brought up without care of either of their parent. That is a horrible thing to live with, beyond our imagination.
We certainly experience the love of a mother in one form or the other. We have seen our aunts, sister-in-law, or sisters having a baby, and watching her nurture her kid is fascinating. She feeds him, shops pretty little clothes, sings a lullaby , and does everything with so much awe and admiration.
A few months back, one of my friends had a baby and that had left a beautiful impression on the canvas of my soul. I became extremely overwhelmed on hearing the news. I mean I have seen my siblings marry, that too of my same age; have had neice for a long time now and also little cousins, whom we have pampered and had spent beautiful times, but oh god!! that one moment when you realize you are no more a child! Nope, no more. The friend with whom you have spent your entire childhood. The days back then were immersed in being kiddish and sort of silly, being free, careless, and negligent; and then your entire collection of memories goes into a box and new phase starts. We are grown-ups now . *finally accepted*
It made me vibrant. I could feel that sense of responsibility she must have felt when she gave birth to a pure soul, her child. The reason it being this sudden of a realization was that we always had those discussions during sessions where we used to say we won’t get married or that we are only 9 now, 25 is way too many years in the future. And now this is it! It all gives me goosebumps to look back to the school times where we just played and do all the crazy stuff. And now , here we are, threaded together with the pasts and … I have no words to say! Indeed, time flies fast, and when you are a grown up , even faster .
