Little Miracle



Maybe it’s because I’ve been away for work for a bit and I’m overly emotional.

Maybe it’s because I worry about literally every situation my kids could possibly get into to. Past, present and future.

I worry they’ll grow up wrong.

I worry they’ll remember their childhoods painfully. Or without joy. Or not at all.

I worry they’ll never want to see us when they are no longer mandated by law to live with us.

I worry.

So when I came home to find this homework assignment that my daughter did it almost killed me with joy.

The assignment was to write about an ” Ordinary Miracle” in your life, and my daughter decided to write about her brother.

Waaaaa!! I can’t even think about it because it just makes me melt.

I am not allowed by the laws of teenagehood to show you the actual assignment, but let me tell you, it’s amazing.

I am really close to my sister, and my husband is super close to his sisters too – so the fact that she wrote about her brother as her ordinary miracle will bring a smile to my face for a long time. Forever maybe.

It was an extraordinary miracle to me.

    That is awesome! Way to go Kera! Neha, you have great kids — in large part because they have great parents. You should be very, very proud.

    I can so relate to all of the worrying–right down to my kids remembering the childhood trials and not the childhood joy. 🙂
    What a joy for you that your daughter wrote about her brother. 🙂 You should be proud!
    Looking forward to reading more!

    Nature-nurture? In this case your children have both. It’s no accident that a smart, funny and nice woman has raised nice children. Pat yourself on the back:)

    So great! I would be melting too if I were in your shoes. Maybe when my daughter & son grow up (and they stop calling each other butthead), they will do something awesome like this. One can hope, right?!
