Of mind and body
I am writing this on a serious note. Mom was’nt doing well this week with her pancreasitis. But the aftermath left her thinking if she could manage further the eating joint she runs. It took me most of the evening to convince her finally that she could.
Its interesting to see hands on, how physical ailments can affect someone’s mental health . She wasnt thinking right, not feeling right. And I think most of all, missing Dad, who is on assignment in West Africa.
Enough said. She is fine now….in fact getting on with life fast. I think I realised that when people start feeling depressed, all they need is someone to convince them that even if they have no faith in themselves, their close ones believe in them. Thats enough to make ’em buck up.
A moment of appreciation to the spirit of taking on life’s challenges and fighting back…
