We are having a break from the rains. Last three days were sunny and today it did not rain at all. When it rains everyday we wonder when it will stop and when it does not rain we keep wondering why it is not raining, human nature 😊.
On the 23rd my mother celebrated her 80th birthday. Since the beginning of this month my niece and I had contacted our close relatives from my father’s side and from my mother’s side to record their birthday wishes and their memories and send them to us. My niece combined them. She had to make three sets, everyone responded. It was very nice of them.
I made green gramdal payasa. We usually go to the temple but did not go this time. Aravind ordered a cake. I made a video of my mother cutting it and shared it in our family WhatsApp group.
My mother was receiving calls from early morning. She is the eldest of ten children. She is loved by all our relatives. She kept wondering how everyone knew of her birthday 😊. Our grandchildren wished her from Germany.
We sat and watched the videos. My mother was very happy to hear and see everyone. She misses my father. He passed away in September 2016. They were married for 57 years.
