She just finished the laundry and Prachet called out from the playground. He had mastered a trick and wanted to show mommy. Just when she was in the balcony to see her kid happy and elated, her phone rang. It was the office calling.
She still had to figure out what to cook for dinner but this file was important. Reluctantly, she opened the flap of her laptop, and searched through the sticky notes.
But then her eyes fixated at the image of her childhood in the background, her wallpaper. All that was on her mind probably leaping and bouncing seconds back started to settle in. She was calm. "Life was so easy when mom would fix everything. When the only thing her brother would do was tease her and the little sister would do was be cute. Why did we have to grow up anyway?", she wondered.
Tears rolled down her eyes.
The pressure cooker roared in the kitchen and brought her out of her reverie.
The file was due in the next 20 minutes.
You have so much on your mind all at once. You have responsibilities that no one could ever fulfill like you do. You are fabulous, and we can't thank you enough. You have the patience, people can only wish for.
You have no time, and still you have all the time in the world for the people you love. There isn't anything in the world that you can't do. You are in the real sense a SUPERWOMAN. We bow in respect.
A little smile on your face will make our day.
She is so excited to tell you these things she did when you were gone. You want to hear all about it, only if those eyes would open for a while.
And in case you get time from the random havoc of your life, all you can see is the bed and the blanket.
Though the good thing is that you have mastered the art of looking ravishing without having to go to the parlor.
Hang on. It will get better someday.
Every Saturday is like, "I will do it on Sunday." And Sunday becomes next week. The cycle is never ending.
And when you get a chance to meet someone who brings back those beautiful old memories, you can't stop crying.
You prefer to have long talks, but where is the time? So, you blend in.
You are an angel in disguise.
No worries. Like I always say, this too shall pass. You are going on a world tour very soon.
You are efficient to the power infinity.
Oh! well as far as I know, no girl is ever tired of compliments. You might pretend like the compliment is yesterday, but you do blush red when no one is looking.
Come on. Make space. Watch a good movie with family.
All this multi-tasking has made you strong and a wonderful person at heart. We respect you.
