When this 30 days of blogging idea was going around, I hesitated; ideas for 30 posts or topics to write on evaded me. But I just plunged in owing to peer pressure…he he…yes…blogging peers 😛 😀 And I’m loving every minute I spend on reading other posts and writing properly, instead of those hurried four lines for a cloud picture, done with the sole intention of keeping my blog alive.
And yesterday, when I wrote the post on prayer, the idea stuck me – the spark came back to me…appada…its a relief….ask any blogger about writing blocks ! I pray that you all don’t fall prey to it ! The idea is to write about all the goodness that I find around me. Everyday will focus on a person or a concept that’s good around me and that I appreciate in life.
What better way than to begin with my Amma ❤
When I grew up, she was the strictest mom ever and even now I feel her voice hovering over me if my kitchen is messy or if clothes are lying around. She doesn’t tell me anything now-a-days, but her voice goes on in my mind. ha ha…that’s Amma 😀
I think I can call her a care-giver to the whole family and sometimes even to unknown people, friends and anybody who calls her for help.
She is always at the hospital for people who want someone to help them around during their stay there. She helps people at their home in all the ways she can. And never has she uttered a bad opinion about others or the way they behave.
I remember that she even had a few saris marked for hospital wear ! Such was her involvement in doing things.
She doesn’t hesitate to do little things for other people; she actually does them from her heart. She doesn’t look for recognition or appreciation for helping out – she just does it – its her basic quality. What an amazing soul she is !
Even if we’ve the health to do, time to spare, the heart should say yes to do such things for others and she’s a fine example of an excellent care-giver !
I bow to thee Amma, for being you, for living by example to show us how important it is to give care to people to who need them.
