On being a Mom – 3

Oh! the joys of being a Mom! Yesterday, Nan and I were playing at home on a day off from school, due to severe snow. She looked at me (quoting her word-to-word) and said “Aai, you look like Belle”. (That is Beauty from ‘Beauty and the Beast’.) Heh! I was so thrilled. It must be true then. Children think their mother is the most beautiful person in the world!

I remember, we had a lesson in school about a Russian girl, who got lost in the fields. When people ask her to describe her mother, she said “My mother is the most beautiful woman in the world”. So they set off on a hunt to find the girl’s mother. They returned back with no success. After a while, a stout woman with a muddy dress and two front teeth missing arrived at the scene. field. She rushed to the little girl and picked her up. The little girl hugged her with equal affection, proudly pointed to her and said “Mom”. Quite a lesson for all of us – Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

I am reading ….

Not a new year resolution, but a resolution all the same. I would like to keep a listing of the books that I read, and note a line or two about the book. I hope I can keep it up this year.

1. Only time will tell – Jeffery Archer

Rating: 7/10
Loved the book! Gifted it to Dad. Written in typical Jeffery Archer style with unexpected twists and turns. If you are a Jeffery Archer fan, you will not be able to keep this one down.

2. Immortals of Meluha

Rating: 8/10
Did not know what to expect out of this adaptation of Shiva’s life. And again, turned out to be a page turner. It makes me want to google about Lord Shiva’s life and read some of his stories. I cannot wait to read the next book in the trilogy. Glad we purchased the two books that have been published, thus far.

I am currently reading:
– The girl with the dragon tattoo
– Death Benefit

More later!
