Life is often about ordinary things...and special people

My mother in law is a wise and an extremely loving lady, who inspires me to derive joy from simple things in life.

I have seen her getting so much joy in doing plain routine things - plucking apples from the trees, sharing some old stories, looking over old pictures, and reminiscing over old friends and times spent with them or cooking for us - her children. An extraordinarily caring person also having an incredible power to fight for a just cause and to protect her children. I guess that instinct somehow automatically comes with being a mother...

She tells me that it's often the joy from ordinary things that give a new meaning to life. 

A pretty silver bowl which she gave me when I was leaving India.... reminding me of everything that she stands for. She is indeed a special person in my life...
