Nurturing Thursday: Treasure little moments of life

Lose not yourself in a far off time, seize the moment that is thine ~Friedrich Schiller



An incidence from a Med school-

In a lecture, one day epidemiology Professor discussed some published articles on cardiovascular diseases (diseases involved heart or blood vessels). There had been good discussion and the lecture was over. After the lecture student gathered near a young boy and asked him, ” by any chance is the first author related to you”? The boy who thought no one would have noticed, got a smile on his face. For a society where ones background is not usually discussed apart from being in a very close group this was an awe moment. So with a shy smile on his face he answered, “well … she is my mom”. The others smiled with wow on their faces. The day then continued as ususal.

Next day the boy told about the whole episode to his mom with the same lovely smile. It was not a big award but this small incidence put smiles on so many faces and it helped in mother-son bonding. It was one of the best moments for the mom as well, getting appreciated from your offspring is a rare event.

These little moments are real treasures :).  Enjoy small treasures in your life while you are busy solving “big” problems in life. This is my contribution to Becca’s 250th Nurturing Thursday.

P.S. The second part of incidence happened in my kitchen 🙂

    Indeed a proud and special moment for both, but especially for the mother I think. All too often children don’t manage to see their mothers as anything other than a mother. Once a friend of mine told us that someone she met professionally referred to me as khadoos. My son found it very amusing but was terribly impressed as well. I felt two feet taller 😀
