Are we ever really prepared to see the pillars that held us up all these years, slowly start to become ever so fragile? I definitely wasn’t ready. Maybe I took things for granted : but that’s life right. Adulting happens, and the focus changes. Things move fast and then it hits you: Time. It moves too quickly. Last few years I’ve gotten to know my mom more that I ever took trouble to. And with each conversation i understand her better and who I am and where my endless resilience comes from. I see how she effortlessly managed so much behind the scenes . As most of our mothers did and still do . Did I appreciate her enough then ? I see it now in me as a mom and how much it takes to be it all that and more . I’m scared of losing her and my dad . I’m saying it out loud because it helps me cope . But I’m ever so grateful to have them right here right now . I am grateful for my sisters who rally around them making sure they stay healthy. I am in grace . Taking this post to put it out there for anyone who feels this . This is your moment . Your chance . To share as much love as you can with those who gave you boundless love and got you to where you are today. love you Mama Papa.”

In another post, Sameera Reddy shared how she wanted to use her childhood experiences to parent her children to be compassionate individuals. She said, “Because I had it hard as a teenager who stammered and was on the heavier side, I will teach my kids to be kind and more tolerant and accepting of all differences. Not everyone is the same. It was very hard to go beyond the hurtful comments I would receive and I wish I could tell this young girl that she was more than perfect. But looking back, haven’t we created a world of perfection and high standards to live up to? Are we sending our kids into that same space? I’d like to believe we are more mindful, conscious beings who are compassionate.”
