A lazy evening, kids excited because their grandpa had come a-visiting, me in the kitchen rustling up dinner, when THUD! There was a loud sound which could have meant only one thing.
Three people converged from various corners to see lil S sprawled on the floor. When he got up, my heart lurched. His whole face was covered with blood and for a second we had no idea where he was hurt – internally or externally. Luckily he had missed teh glass door nearby. There was so much blood that it was scary, not to mention the big brother howling away! A quick glance showed a deep gash near the eye and we, pretending to be brave, rushed to the emergency care, very worried that there was some damage to his eye. Hours of anxious waiting followed, where the doctors patiently reassured us that he was fine and just needed stitches. We held his hands, we talked to him but he was not fooled, he kept fighting his sedation because he did not want to lose sight of us. The poor boy finally slept on the drive home, with us feeling guilty for not having prevented it. Ten years of parenting should have hardened us, kids fall, that's part of growing up but try telling that to my heart
Two days later, the lil one back to his antics, I sit down to finish my pending work. I open my comment box to read a message which led me to Madhu’s blog. And I see this.
Another whimsical post to you, madhu for this blessing. You have no idea how much it meant to me.
This tag is a blessing in disguise and i'm glad that i can keep up this chain. I have been asked to select three people and direct some positive vibes their way. And this picture below
is to represent that the tag is indeed traveling virtually across the world. For the sake of the chain, i can tag only a few, but i do wish the very best for everyone reading this.
Prats – a wonderful person in all ways that matter. I pray that you continue bringing warmth and sunshine everywhere you go.
Ziah – You definitely need this. May the 18 hr workdays decrease and your posts increase... :) Hopefully this accelerates the muffet writing process ;)
UL – for her delightful and creative posts. She’s a special blog friend and I wish the very best for her.
