Saying 'Thank You'!

Me and Anirudh went for a walk after having our dinner. Since it had rained and drizzled most of the day, the weather was quite nice. Plus since we had been home all day, a walk seemed like a nice idea.

So as we stopped out, nice cool breeze hit us and it felt so good. After a long long time we had such a nice weather here in Delhi.

So we started to walk and Anirudh saw the moon and jumped with joy! As we were walking on, he asked me "Hum Mandir ja rahe hain?" because the road we were walking on leads to the Mandir close to our society. So I asked him if he wants to go and he nodded and said "Haan!" So off we went to the Mandir, and he bowed in front of the idols and made me put some 'bindi' on his forehead. :)

As we were walking back he suddenly said "Kitna achha lag raha hai!" :D He said so because the wind had gotten a bit stronger and was blowing right into us. It actually felt really really nice.

He almost ran instead of walking on the way back! I had to make him stop and wait for me because I was in no mood to run just after the stomach full of chhole puri's that I had made. And he would say "Jaldi aayo na yahan!" pointing to where he was standing. :)

And when we came back home and I switched on the laptop, he came to me and said "Mumma, bahut mazaa aaya! Thank you!" That brought such a big smile to my face and I thought how such little things make him happy and how he expresses it to us too. We adults don't thank each other enough for such little gestures. This is one thing that I have learnt from him time and again and I promise to be more thankful for the little blessings/gestures of love shown to me.
