I had a weird day today… My son and I were running a fever, the man is out of town and I was too sick to take my little one to school… My silver lining was in the Shatabdi train to Bangalore and all the three of us were waiting for ” Amme” to get here.
It really doesn’t matter how old you grow, the moment you’re ill, the only person you need is your mother. I managed till amma got home, coz the moment I saw her, I just crashed..
My pregnant friend A was sweet enough to come with me and my son to the doc tonight. She drove while Dhruv and I sat in the back seat. After getting the med prescription from the doc, A got the car and I put my son in the back seat and headed to collect the meds from the pharmacy only to turn around to find the car missing… I got a panicky call two minutes later from A who was wondering where I was… She apparently thought I’d gotten in and driven off.. and realisation that she’d left me behind dawned when she wondered why she was having a one sided conversation 😀 Its wonderful to have friend like A around. Even on super weird days, she makes you laugh!
Now the kids are in bed and I get this from my sis in law. Made me burst out laughing.
So today- I’m grateful-
For Amma who’s always been there when I’ve needed her
For a three year old daughter who gave me loads to pretend ” Dawai” , hugs and kisses and kept her naughty side in check till Ammagot home
For friends like A who’ll make you laugh and will drive you to a doc and J who called through the day to check if I needed any help or drops off meds at your house even though she lives a good 10-12 kms in the opposite direction.
For my father and my husband who kept calling to check on me…
and for my sis in law who always manages to put a smile on my face!
Yup, sure I was sick, and I felt even worse seeing my boy sick…
But as I sign off right now- exhausted and feverish-
I have a little glow in my heart.
