Love,from the strangest corners.

Everybody has their own story to tell.
This woman who looks so distraught and angry actually smiled when I handed her a chocolate.
To me, she had looked like someone who looked incapable of feeling joy and emotions close to it.I was wrong.
She blessed me and told me that to her, I felt like the daughter she had never been able to receive love from.
I was moved but could not put myself to stay on and ask more questions.To talk to her.Help her.
For some reason, it disturbed me that I felt true motherly love from a stranger.
I shall go back someday and find her and thank her and give her what she deserves.
I can almost see her waiting at the corner of that deserted lane for her new found daughter to come back.

Dude I really like what you felt. Sometimes it makes me think as well. Like its a crazy way we go about tryin live a perfect life, tryin to find the perfect friends, hopin for the perfect family. But it sure strikes me, "What if I judged too soon?". What if it all would have been different? Would we still be what we are today? What if we were like her, lived as her? would we still be the same? Maybe, maybe not. But I guess at some point, we are all similar. Its just that some people like us have been extremely lucky. While some people are left with an eternal wait, by the corner of the deserted lane.
Strange thing Society, right?

Apart from that brilliant post. And i loved the pic...

I love the picture and love the way you think. It was an amazingly kind thing to do.

Everyone's life is spent waiting for something. Love, people, friendship, money.....

Sometimes a connection with a perfect stranger can be richer and deeper than with any friend.
