Post my mother’s heart attack last month, our family has been shaken up. It has disturbed me deeply and such a close encounter with life makes you re-evaluate life and it’s relationships, the true meaning of happiness and what really matters. I had put down my thoughts in a previous post: A wake-up call!
A thought that has stayed with me since then, is that if I still need my mother with me at every step, how dependent are my kids, who are just 4 and 2 years old, on me.
They have a whole life ahead of them and a mother is one of the most important companions in the journey of life. She is not simply known as “a cook, nurse, nanny, teacher, caregiver, best friend in one”. She truly lives up to all those roles, and more.
