I Saw, I Learnt

I Saw, I Learnt!!

My mom is my strongest pillar, (of course just after my dad) i hang on to. I think, i am what i am because of her. She walked ahead of me to set examples, she walked beside me to hold whenever i fall and she walked behind me to bring out the person she wanted me to be.

Thanks is, of course, an understatement!

Of all things she taught me, one which I am immensely thankful is for value of - SHARING!

When i open my box of old goodies, well it is all empty. My favorite doll, my favorite red frock, my favorite pink pony with ultra straight haired tail and my other favorites are all gone. They exist only in my memory.

I remember that my mom used to ask me to give away my favorite toys to the maid's kids. She would not hesitate in giving away my favorite clothes to them either. Or, even worse, my brand new clothes for some special occasions to my cousins. A small chips packet or a huge cake, all needs t be shared by all present.

Of course, I used to just JUST hate all this sharing and caring. But eventually as i grew up, i became less possessive about my things and more empathetic towards people around me. And i realized all this only when its time for me to mother my baby and pass these values.

My baby is just one and a half year but i ask her to share. With her little hands she feeds everyone in the family. Well, barely anything reaches our mouth, but the training has indeed started.

I saw my mom and i learnt and now its time to set an example!
