A year – before and today – I

The chaos of early 2020 when the reality of pandemic hit the world and same times in 2021.

What has changed ?

Many precious lives were lost during the course of this one year. There have been tears of pain and despair of not been able to say goodbye to the loved ones who lost their lives

Then again tears of joy and gratitude of holding loved ones who made it through.

The sheer resilience of mankind has created a new world to survive and thrive. It is combined brilliance of the minds , working overtime to find the solutions and the cure.

The result -Today we have VACCINE. There may side effects , but still it is better then having nothing. Lot of People may be apprehensive about it’s long term effects etc and not coming forward to get their jabs. What happens down the road no one knows. What happens TODAY is important.

The pandemic and the Tsunami of pain and destruction it brought taught many lessons.

For me it is :

Humans are the most vulnerable of all and need a balanced ECOSYSTEM to survive. “

What is your thought , please do share.

Inspiration-Guest post

You were there, sitting on your bed silently …

Like a bird waiting for Spring

The small hospice room where they put you

Looks like this branch of chestnut tree.

Your withered hands hook in their language

Your attachment to the world, your desire to leave a mark

To the  time that goes by, and your words reflect your will

To trust God, who knows your soul.

At 97, you spend days

Far from Italy that you left behind 

You’re going to fall asleep in this distant land

Whose language or saints, you don’t know .

Sweet soul, sweet woman, so withered and serene

God was injected into your veins

You radiated kindness and patience

I was learning in silence, a lesson in existence

13 December- Day of Abundance of love ❤

Simply beautiful

Like a gentle breeze

You touch me everyday

Why

Should I miss you?

When I have so much to Thank You for

Strong like Sun

Bright like Moon

You taught us “FEARLESSNESS

Gave us “Free WILL”

With lot of humor

And

A pinch of sarcasm

You may have left this world

But not our thoughts.

On your Birthday we remember you with gratitude and bow to your selfless existance🙏🏻💕🙏🏻

Today We don’t look the same but definitely feel the same

In this journey of life, the bond of Togetherness have grown stronger because of YOU MAA

Contemplating…..

Employment : Full time (24×7)

Work place : HOME

Job description: Just doing whatever necessary to maintain it.

Remuneration : What a silly question 😃

Women who do not earn in monetary terms, especially married ones, got to hear this often *What you do all day just sitting at home “?

Most of the time when they reply ,it leads to frustration and unpleasant emotions.

Letz see what we do sitting at home.

Home is a vehicle, isn’t it ?

Yes, driven by the person in driving seat (mostly husband😃)

Every vehicle needs to be properly aligned and maintained to go long distance and at good speed

Who do that ?

The Mechanic .

He/She works not only on engine but on every smallest parts also to keep the vehicle in running condition.

Will a driver be able to drive without the support of Mechanic ?

Definitely NO

Women who look after their family at home are like mechanics, who maintain their homes ,keeping things in order and working condition.

Imagine a world of automobiles if all Mechanics take a long holiday from their respective jobs……

SCARY isn’t it?

SO PPL RESPECT AND VALUE YOUR SPOUSES, who are just sitting at home.

“House is just a structure

We make it HOME”
