Precious moments

The other day my friend asked me about our next book club meeting. Some of us book lovers formed our book club in 2009. We meet once a month and talk about books. It is fun. But, this time we have not met for more than two months. We were all busy with other matters.

And I was busy in a very, very nice way. Our daughter and grandson had been with us for twenty days and those twenty days we lived in a different world, a world revolving around our grandson. Everything else took a backseat. We gave ourselves up to enjoying our little bundle of joy. Every day, in fact every moment was a different experience. Everything he did was lovable and every smile he gave us was more precious than anything else in the world. Time just flew and those precious moments have become precious memories.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
