I spoke to my mom today

She said she watched it last night and cried. ๐Ÿฅบ
Now, I want to highlight here that my mom is not a fluent English speaker. She understands bits and parts of it, things she taught herself as she single-handedly raised three children; with my father usually away on some Naval expedition. 
So, my mom watched my video and cried. Not because she understood everything I said, but because she comprehended every flicker of my eyelids, every sigh and all the silence inside me. โค 
I wanted to talk about this, because something I read today also emphasized this feeling in me.

And this just resonated so much with me today.   ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™Œโค
Even though I am a cat momma, I have not experienced the journey of motherhood, of nurturing a life inside me and then birthing it. Of being so inexplicably attached to a being long after the umbilical cord has been cut. 
This is why, I am so grateful that I can understand what it feels like because of books like these. And, of course, because of how much I love my mom. โค 
Thank you for this, Harshali. More power to your words. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š
