Link Restored

Mother wrote to me,

“Everyone turns to their root at one point in their life.”

“Ha!” I replied, “I have adjusted in this foreign land with its culture, philosophy and almost everything, moreover I’m comfortable with work facilities here.”

Mother replied,

“People are like migratory birds, no matter how much you fly away, you come back home at last.”

“No way!” I concluded.

Now watching my parents standing hand in hand even after so many fights, arguments, difference of opinion at their fiftieth wedding anniversary, I suddenly felt insecure, can’t explain why?

I wrote to mother,

“Mother we are coming back.”

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  3. Dear Indira,

    Between your lovely story and the photo, you leave me smiling. My husband and I only have 7 years to go.

    Shalom,

  6. I think there are always ties to our origins.. sometimes just sentimental.. but I think you have found a natural connection of returning for many.

  7. In this age of throw away, I am wondering how long such things as marriages will last?
    My parents have passed their 50th years ago. It is very reassuring to see them together, even now.

    • I too wonder and fear. Its really reassuring when some pass the test of time and stick together. A lot of patience, compromises, understanding and will for compatibility goes in that. Thanks for reading.

  8. Indira, A lovely piece and photo that accompanied it. My husband and I just passed our 39th anniversary as we married rather later than many. Two couples on his side have celebrated their 50th anniversaries. Years ago my parents celebrated their 50th. I hope there will be many more such anniversaries in future. Well written.🙂 —Susan
