We were at a friend’s place when their 5 year old daughter ran and sat on her mom’s lap. A Hug, a kiss, big smiles followed.  This was a few years back. But that one moment stayed on with me.

Since then the interaction between a mom and her child always grabs my attention. The trust that flows, the love that shows, the care that unknowingly comes through always tugs at my heart. Friends, I have known for years and years, friends who had not a care in the world or gave a hoot about what anyone said or did, now think about their kids first. Nose gets wiped on the fav. dress, food gets splattered on the silk sarees, high heels have traded places with flats. We have all become moms.

I love to watch the byplay of emotions. That one unguarded moment where no one else exists but those two, that one tender kiss on the brow, that spontaneous hug, that reassuring look which says ‘don’t worry, I am here’.  THAT is love. THAT is a thing to behold. All you need to do is look.
