This picture hides 1,000 words. And tears. Looking at it doesn’t do it an ounce of justice. After a great dinner for Jaan’s 11 month birthday (one he cried and slept through, kind of like what I do more and more with each passing year), the grandparents, my sis, and Priya and I gathered at home for chai before getting to bed. At some point the Mom’s got to talking about each other and there was not a dry eye in the room. So much love, appreciation and respect for each other. So much gratitude for how much love the other has for their acquired children. How natural our family ties are. So let’s do this. Of all the area I find myself to be blessed, it’s fair to say the way our parents get along…actually our families…is amazing.
And #iamthankful and #iamgrateful for the air cover I was born with and the air cover I’ve newly acquired. Ain’t no kinda aashirvaad like that powered by your Momma. We got it 2x. But even better, is how much they’ve got it for each other.
