My 4.5 year old daughter, Reeva, is very much fond of painting and coloring. Since she was 1.5 years old she could hold crayons and scribble. When she was 2 years old and started going for playschool, her teacher once called me personally and told me this incident, She said she was distributing a paper with various shapes outline drawn and giving crayons to everyone and while many of them could not hold crayon properly Reeva already completed coloring those shapes!! I think its her god's gift and I try my best to encourage her for the same.
I have started to collect and preserve ample of her paintings but this particular one is my favorite and very close to my heart, She did this paining few months back around August 2016, It was my usual tiring day back from office and i was super tired, as I came back home Reeva came jumping to me and wanted to play tea party set with me but i was super tired and told her mumma is tired please give me some time to freshen up and I will play with you till then you paint something for me (painting is the only thing that works for her on those times when I'm super tired and want her to play alone) I handed over her set of crayons and her drawing book, and I got busy with my routine house chores trying my best to complete all the stuff soon so I could play with her. After some time she came jumping to me and showed me this painting saying "mom look mom look" and I turned back and saw this paining.... before i could react or say anything she said "Look mom sun is smiling and sun is happy with so many colours!!" My mood was instantly lifted up looking how innocently she painted the smiling face of sun adding so many colours around... her innocent way to make me smile was clearly visible, I left everything and hugged her thight :) I'm surely going to frame this picture for her to treasure.

Past two days had been really bad..... It's just because of one stye in eye... It's totally annoying... Irritating to the core how much ever I try to get rid of it it's just getting worse.... I feel even medicine isn't working and I feel I have to wait for a day more (hopefully) and just to watch it grow until it finally burst!
I have always been paranoid about eyes it is because my dad is blind, he lost his eyes at very young age and if anything happens to anyones eyes naturally get one panic attack.
So coming back to stye... Ooouch it hurts! Day -1 it started with a small pin drop. Day - 2 it grew and started hurting, took medicine, rest , avoided working for half day Day - 3 morning was worst.. Felt like conjunctivitis.. It was so big that I could hardly open one of my eye... Rushed to doc he said it will grow a day more... Missed meeting up with my friends....Wait and watch...
Now as I'm not working today and they say idle mind is devil's workshop...lol.. Thoughts are running marathon.... In all possible directions... In the middle of all the thoughts I just paused and started thinking in different direction... I started associating the stye with real life goals.... If we had planned a goal/target for a day and it happens that a stye (obstacle) comes in such a way that no matter hard we try to get rid of it or try to avoid it by all possible means but it will hinder out our way towards our target. At that particular time we get so much pissed off, annoyed but it hardly helps. All we can do is to wait and watch and look out for the phase to pass. No point in bending the rod with bare hands, it will only hurt us.
So consider such situations as a break from routine and learn to dance in rain. I have decided until my stye gets fine will stay at home play with my daughter and spend time with her which I usually missed while I'm at work.
