#SoCS Dec. 14/19


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “loud.” Find any word that means “loud,” and use it any way you’d like in your post. Enjoy!

This prompt reminded me of our granddaughter. Our daughter and family live in Germany. They had come for a vacation in August. Kavya, our granddaughter is two years. This time she got to know us very well.
I talk with my daughter every day through WhatsApp video call. We talk with our grandchildren too. I usually make the call. When Kavya sees only me she starts asking for ‘ajja’ . Ajja means grandfather. Then she calls out ‘ maama’. Maama means uncle.  Then she says ‘pijji ‘ which means great grandmother.  She starts in a soft voice and the volume increases as she calls every one. After talking for some time we say goodbye and then she says ‘bye bye see you’ in a loud voice, not once, but many times😊. It makes our day . We think that whatever our grandchildren do is wonderful 😊

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. Due to the pandemic I could not go to the Home for the mentally challenged for two years. I had been going there since 2011. I have started going again. I was happy that some members remembered me :) All of them are an important part of my life. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made our lives richer.

    I am still at the stage of thinking that my daughter is the most wonderful daughter in the world ever, but I suspect that when grandchildren come, they will be every bit as wonderful as their mother.
    I think that all parents and grandparents think in this way!
