Hey there ! I am a quality assurance engineer , currently a Stay at home mom for two daughters. Comforting words from an article, by a total stranger can give so much strength and hope. I started this blog to share my views and mainly to learn from others’ experiences.
My hobbies are writing, reading, gardening, crafting, listening to music.
I wanted to post something here today. Something to say I’m still here, I’m alive 😅. Linda’s prompt made me smile.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “to your left.” When you sit down to write your post, look to your left. What is the thing closest to you? Write about the memories that thing induces. Enjoy!
Well I’m not able to enjoy writing for this prompt. But I’m going ahead anyway. My city is having a huge spike of covid cases and we at home, we hear atleast one death in our known circle per day! It’s so much far from normalcy! It’s another thing that we have a big circle but still …. it’s so not normal! A few of us are volunteering to help people find hospital beds or search for medicines and arrange for it’s delivery. There’s shortage of all resources, be it oxygen or the steroids that doctors are prescribing. Many calls are needed to land with a correct contact. This is taking away most of my time these days and hence was away from WP. So kind of a few of you here to check on me, means a lot ❤️big thank you❤️
On normal days, when I have free time, when life is going on as usual, seeing my desk like this (the attached pic) in the living room used to be so irritating. I would give a nice long lecture to my kids as to how important it is to keep the house clean. Why did they waste paper? Why did they cut so many pieces and if it’s for their play, why not clean it up? It would be so difficult to sweep these away for our helper too. Now due to lockdown situation no helper either!!
But none of these bothered me today! I’m glad my kids are finding ways to keep themselves occupied, without being able to meet their friends or go out anywhere for more than a year now! These are supposedly “veggies” for my 5 year old’s kitchen play. 😂These bits were all over the house!!! Yet it dint seem a problem today!
I just had answered a call from someone who wasn’t able to find a bed for his wife who is feeling breathless!!
I just had called someone with a positive news that “I found that medicine in a remote corner medical shop in Bangalore” while he said “the patient is no more”!!
I was trying to arrange medicines for someone’s parents’ here, both tested positive for covid and were super tired to even call the medical stores for home delivery!!
I had made phone calls to provide food for the needy who are finding difficult to meet basic requirements in this pandemic!!
No … the bits of paper that were all around my house did not bother me even one bit today!!! I’m grateful we are all safe, we are all healthy, we have food and shelter!!! Every small problem that bothered me before felt nothing compared to what I’m attending to all day!!!
❤️❤️❤️Dear Earth, please heal soon!!! ❤️❤️❤️
P. S : If you are eligible, please get vaccinated
If you are COVID recovered and meet the requirements, please donate plasma.
Do your little bit, whatever you can, today! The world needs you!
Well to my own take, I am concluding that he might have kept the ash tray ready for her, if she smoked! 😀. With most of my closest friends and soul mate, my first impression was wrong!! Totally wrong! What’s your view on first impression? Do you go by it?
Thanks for reading and I’m on the way in catching up with comments and posts in WP ❤️See you around soon. 😊
In response to Sadje’s What do you see prompt. Thanks for hosting this dear, Sadje
As I gaze at the setting sun,
Waves of memories ebb
The wind carried an unpleasant sound
Shells of dreams, broken and scattered around
Foot prints of failures were seen
All over on the sands of time
Amidst an ocean of darkness, no one in sight
I see a jar of hope filled with flickering light.
A/N – A quick write up in response to Sadje’s prompt. My hands are full… No… I guess it’s my mind… my mind is full and pre occupied with no space to think anything for my blog here. All of us in the family are down with seasonal flu, thankfully not covid. But till the covid results came up we had to follow the norms of isolating the ones with symptoms and that’s hell lot of work!!! See you all around soon. I’m lagging behind with my responses to all your comments and reading all your blogs too. Will catch up soon.
I volunteer to create audio books for visually challenged children. Being sensitive to their needs, is a never ending learning curve! ❤️ it’s easy for me to read out “code red – fire” “code yellow – internal emergency “, but I wonder, how difficult it is for them to memorise all this without knowing what red n yellow look like!
But thankfully, they are blessed with amazing memory!
