Grow Old With Me: #WordlessWednesday
“Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith “A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!”
– Robert Browning

My parents, enjoying a quiet evening in our balcony. This is soon after Ma was detected with the Big C. She had returned from the hospital a week or two back, and was apparently on the mend.
For some odd reason this picture is not as sharp as it appeared on my laptop. But, a precious moment as this had to be shared on #WW.

Such a special picture! Love and hugs, dear!
Thanks Aditi. It is. Miss Ma so much. Love and hugs back at you. <3
The photo has an air of calmness and peace about it. It would have been hard to tell by the look on your mother’s face if you hadn’t mentioned about her ailment been then recently detected.
Yes, it was one of those surreal, peaceful evenings. The storm had partially blown away. And it’s quite uncanny ,though I did not plan it that way, this post coincided with my parents fifty-sixth anniversary. This time without Ma.
Thank you for your kind comment, Anamika.
Your parents look so happy here
I know. Serene and joyful. Thank you for visiting, Suhasini.
A picture speaks a thousand words. I have found this true so many times in my life. Here, your parents look so calm and content in the lap of nature.

This is so true. The love of your life also becomes your best friend.

Sometimes pictures can be such a pick me up. I love looking through old memories and pictures. Spent a lot of time doing that at my in-laws recently during Diwali.
I can imagine how nostalgic you must feel looking at this photo . Your parents look quite composed and content though in this picture.
Yes, this picture overflows with nostalgia. And the fact that time and tide, wait for none.
Yes, Ma and Babi were so content despite the challenges at hand, at that point of time.
