Low Carb Cottage Cheese Coconut Gravy Recipe is a tasty and healthy recipe for those who are on Low Carb Diet.
“It’s a special bond that spans the years. Through laughter, worry, smiles and tears, A sense of trust that can’t be broken, A depth of love sometimes unspoken, A lifelong friendship built on sharing, Hugs and kisses, warmth and caring, Mother and daughter, their hearts as one – A link that can never be undone. ”
I was very tired yesterday, after a long day of cleaning at my new house (we are still settling down and it seems it will go on and on). Still, I was thinking of what to prepare for the lunch box for my daughter, for the next day.
After seeing my languid face my daughter asked “Mom what happened? What are you thinking so deeply?”.
I said, “I am planning for tomorrow’s routine, baby. I am also thinking of what to prepare for your lunch box tomorrow”.
I then asked, “You tell me baby, what do you want me to prepare for tomorrow’s lunch box?”
Her reply was quick, “Make whatever is easy for you Mom”.
She thought for a minute and then said, “Puri is something you will have to make. So give me aloo paratha”.
I smiled at her innocent answer and said, “Beta, be it kachori or, paratha.. I will have to make both. So shall I make Halwa for you dear, since that will be very easy for me”.
A look at her face and I could understand that she was not much interested in taking halwa for lunch since she had it just about two days back as well.
She then replied and her response was the most loving thing I could have expected from a little daughter, “Mom you can make halwa for me since it will be less work for you”.
Her words showed how much she cared for me and understood me. I felt so good seeing she observed me and my daily routine. She notices and recognizes the kind of effort I put in. Which at times I think even elders fail to do.
I was a satisfied mom at the way she responded to the situation and I hope that this good habit of caring remains the same as she grows up.
