For a mother her son is always a child

A mother treats her son as a child only though he grows up by age and also holds a super post in his Company. Everytime when she advises him , he says mama I am grown up and I know these things. But still she advises him even if he shouts her.

She has no patience for somethings. For others he might be a Director, but for her he is always a kid. She knows that he has grown up and will take care of himself but still she does not leave him. Till he is married he also listens to what all his mother says and knows that his success is due to her only. But after marriage he does not know whom to listen whether to his wife or to his mother.

So mothers should not disturb them in their married life. They are lucky if they get a good daughter in law who respects her and takes her mother in law's advise in everything. The mother also feels happy and does anything for her son and daughter in law.

True care  will never be recognised easily. Those who are cared never value it at many times, but they will definitely understand it when they start missing it.

Life is like a Novel

Life is like a Novel which is filled with suspense.  We have no idea what is going to happen until we turn the pages. We have to keep turning the pages and enjoy our life. God has given one more day to perform.

I have enjoyed each stage of my life. When I turn the page and come to Childhood days think of the days I  enjoyed with good and best friends. Played all sorts of games , had many friends. Friends and family made my childhood memorable.

Next came teenage. Grew up more by height and also learnt so many things. Was no more a child but still since I had elder brothers and sister I was treated as a kid only. In my family my grandmother used to stay she is still a kid and used to fulfill all my wishes. Miss my granny now.

Oh the time came to marry. But after marriage no more a kid was the eldest daughter in law so had many responsiblities. Though I was young at heart but as aresponsbile daughter in law had to take care of everything. Got respect from all the youngsters.

Was glad that I could perform my duties as a daughter in law well and got appreciation from the elders. Had the opportunity to do kanyadanam not only for my daughters but also for my dh's niece, to perform vradham for my dh's nephew, recently as my dh's niece's would be son in law's relatives were not there we were asked to sit as his parents during the engagement.

Now as a Senior Citizens glad that I get respect from everyone and get the opportunity to guide others in functions and also take part in the functions. Hope life continues like this till the end

Tatting done by me some 15 or more years ago

Before marriage I had lot of time to spend my time in doing embroidery etc.  I had learnt to do Tatting, embroidery, crochet and knitting. I had time to do drawings also.

But after marriage I could not spend much time in these. I am posting below the tatting done by me some 15 years ago. I dont remember exactly when I had done this.

A wonderful gift by my sis in law(my brother's wife)

Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take. - Anthony Robbins

Karthigai is a festival of lights celebrated by South Indians in the month of Karthigai which is between November 15th and December 15th every year. The women decorate inside and outside the house with many diyas which are kept on the rangoli drawn by them.

This festival is celebrated for the health of their brothers by the women. The brother gives cash to their sister. My sister in law gives me a gift every year for Karthigai which can be preserved always. This year she gave me a bedsheet in which she had done wonderful patch work. Here is the lovely gift

My sketches

Friends I am starting to write separately in my blogs. I have started doing some sketches. Hope I will be able to do more.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can makeyou spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul - Swami Vivekananda
Since childhood I have been an art lover. But I did not get a chance to improve on it. But seeing everyone showing their talents I also feel like doing something. Here are two of my sketches. Please let me know how it is.
