In the last four months, being busy with family affairs- niece's wedding, my surgery, family holidays, cooking for a large family and their friends, Atreya's college move, trip to Europe, ill health upon return- my work had taken a backseat. I had reduced my consulting assignments to a minimum and stopped my teaching in schools and Anganwadis.
And as expected, the feeling that I was not doing enough crept in. And as is the nature of our relationship, I wrote to Atreya about it. His response was so beautiful and comforting. I love him for it. This from a man who has always known his mom as a busy working woman. Am I lucky to be his mom or what?
