Hello friends, I wish all the daughters a very happy daughter’s day. The International Daughter’s Day is celebrated globally on the fourth Sunday every year, which falls today on 26th September. Daughters are a cherished treasure for their parents and I am no exception. I consider myself greatly blessed to have a daughter, who instantly knows whether I’m happy, sad or rather contemplating about my blog, just seeing my face. She has the knack of reading my face like an open book!
I got her via a C – section. While still in anesthesia induced haze, when my eyes opened and found two tiny legs thrusting from my mother’s lap. She was sitting on another bed, her back towards me, trying her best to manage her newborn granddaughter, who was crying at the top of her voice. I just can’t describe, how melodious her lusty scream sounded to me. My relief and elation knew no bounds when I saw her beautiful heart shaped face, my heart literally turning over.
As a kid, it was almost impossible to keep her still at a place. I had to keep innovating the ways to engage her attention. In fact, she barely studied her books and used to listen my rendition of it, whatever I wanted her to learn. My exasperation tested it’s limit when once I found her nowhere and I was going on like a tape recorder as her exams were near. Then I discovered she was under the study table, playing with something. The best part was, she always passed the examinations with flying colors.
One thing I must mention that this year, she has been qualified as a doctor. You can call it a coincidence that my husband had got fever on the final day of her practical examination and subsequently tested positive for the dreaded virus( in the first week of April). The next day I was infected too. I can readily vouch that we both became children instantly and she our mother.
She got both of us admitted in a reputed hospital. Holding her forte resolutely at home along with her younger brother, fighting the demons of her anxiety, without revealing it to us. In the telephonic conversations, she became the pillar of strength for both of us always encouraging to give a good fight. She even paid visits to her father, twice, when he had to be put into ICU. It eventually proved a turning point, a great moral booster for him and he started to gradually recover.
After our release from the hospital, she took both of us under her strict observation and slowly but surely weaned us back to our normal self. The struggle was not only physical but psychological too and she calmly handled both the aspects, calmly and determinedly. I can only thank God for giving such a precious gift of a daughter to us.
Now, she has become more than busy with her internship. Even today she is on 24 hrs rota, running and taking care of patients under her. I pray to God that all her wishes are fulfilled and always remains happy.
I also wish all the daughters to achieve whatever they are aspiring for and make the parents proud. They are in fact the precious nuggets adorning the hearts of their parents. I wish they always shine bright and reach the heights they wish for.
Hope you all had a nice weekend. Wishing you health and happiness.
Adieu for now.
