Today you have life and tomorrow not! I always crib I have so much to do, its an endless list of chores, starting my day with serving breakfast to the girls, having a Chai(the best time of the day), throwing the washing in the machine, running to the gym, catching a 5 minute sauna break (much needed) and doing groceries while coming home and then fixing a quick but yummy lunch for whoever is at home, serving and clearing up, then attending a client for eyebrow and running off to do the preparation for the course. I always feel that tomorrow should be good and relaxed and better but hey what is better, as long as we have life there is struggle and to be honest I love it like this! OK I get a bit overwhelmed at times, but I feel I have so much energy that it needs to be utilized. and then some things happen in the family and make you think and retrospect, what it is all about.
This Sunday I finally picked up the phone and called my cousin in Delhi, this was the most difficult call I had to make, which I was postponing for a long time. I remember her wedding in Jaipur, I must be in the 8th grade and I was "Allowed" to put nail paint on her finger nails, what an honour it was for me to be able to put nail paint for a bride. Let me tell you it wasn't that easy, I was asked and the moment I started, a few pairs of eyes were watching me and then they all said, its fine and I breathed a sigh of relief. So I remember my cousin`s wedding very much and her husband too. Last week I got to know that he expired, my Mom, my brother and many other people from the family went to visit them in Delhi. He was not doing that well but not so bad to be gone, she must be in her late forties and have two young kids. How do you call and what do you say in such a situation? But anyways I called her and she spoke and we cried on the phone and she told me how it all happened. These things makes you really think about life and what are we doing here? Today we are here and tomorrow gone, just like that. How do the families and the close ones prepare for that.
