I find that as we grow older illnesses takes on so much importance and gravity. I remember feeling as a child that all adults had a veneer of strength and invincibility. Alas, time has a nasty way of catching up with all of us and we find that adults, whom we thought nothing could harm, are only human.
I want to remember my mausi today. Smiling, laughing wonderful memories. A full life over too soon. Surrounded by her family and friends. I remember all the time I spent with her on my trip to India last year and will cherish that time forever.
Our angels watch over us.
