I have twin daughters.
I always wished during my pregnancy that at least one of the babies be female.
To my surprise both were girls! I was so ecstatic! Girls are angels sent by God for their Parents.
After my delivery, many of my relatives, friends and family came in to visit us at the hospital to check on me and the babies.
Many were happy, while some had little comments to make. They said it would be nice if at least one was a boy, as both are girls you’ve to send them to their in-laws’ house after marriage.
I was going through postpartum blues and these words kind of got to me. That night I was quite sad. Imagining my world without my babies near me. Imagining the day that I would’ve to send them to their husband’s house.
But, then I realized that there’s no use thinking about the future and being sad about it. Rather, create beautiful memories with my babies till the day they’re with us. Give them all the love, care, and warmth I can. Only that, is in my control!
I realized that there is no point in worrying about the things that I have no control over.
I am a woman and a daughter to my parents. I am a daughter-in-law too. So, I have a duty towards my parents as well as the people who blessed me with such an amazing husband, ie., my in-laws. Both are my family and I am responsible for both of these families. It’s all about striking a balance.
I and my husband decided to give up the fast and monotonous city lifestyle and chose to stay with his parents. Conveniently, my parent’s house too was just 45–50 mins by car. So it was a win-win situation for both of us.
Although it took a lot of hard work and sacrifice to secure a job( we live in a small town, where there are no IT companies so my husband had to work hard to secure this job) that allowed permanent remote work, in the end, it was all worth it!
So, now I go visit my parents whenever I feel like it or they come to visit us whenever they want to. We call each other every day. I’ve made sure to stay close to them so that they don’t ever feel like they’re alone.
All you should know is that may it be a boy or girl, both the gender at some point in time, may leave their parent’s house for one or the other reason may it be in search of a job or post marriage. But, if you’ve raised your kids right, and nurtured them, they always find their way back to you.
A Woman has multiple roles to manage. She is a devoted wife, a caring daughter, an affectionate mother, a caring daughter-in-law, and a loving sister. Along with all these, she also plays a huge role in the development of society and its sustainable growth. She holds all these positions so gracefully and does justice to them.
Woman is Shakti. She is the true essence of nature. Be proud of your feminine energy and nuture her. She is much stronger than you think. She can endure much more than a man could ever even imagine.
Today, I can proudly say that i am a mother of two daughters. I can see them growing into beautiful, caring souls bringing so much joy to everyone around them. They may outgrow my lap, but never my heart.
I just want to congratulate all the women on a very happy ‘Women’s day’! And to all the women who have daughters, you are extremely lucky! Raise them well, educate them and you’ll see how they make everyone’s life better.
