Standard

When it comes to color, it’s not only me but every one of us come across many things. Colors represent one’s emotion, feeling, spirit, mood and the list is never ending.

Colors has loads of power in them, as they could change the mood, mind set of people and make everything ease. Colors are endless and limitless with too many shades like light colors, dark colors, metallic, gold, bronze…

A Timely and A Precious Gift – Madraasi Scribbles

So, when it comes to gift, dresses you wear for functions all have some color contractions. I love black color to the core, but my mom and grand ma, shouts like anything when I pick dresses in black 😲. I use to laugh and make fun of them 😝, during my childhood. But now, I could realize how colors play an important role and how it could easily soothe one’s feeling and make them feel more comfortable.

A Timely and A Precious Gift – Madraasi Scribbles

From my experience – recently while going through a problem 😐 (my mind says, but it was just a dust), both my brain and heart started travelling in two different paths. It has been a difficult time and still being, but as I knew that days are passing by and I need to get up to speed and catch up…

When the days were brighter, my eyes found it darker
When the nights were darker, my eyes found it brighter
When there were blooming flowers, my eyes found only the shrunk ones
When there was moist in the air, my body felt only the dryness
When there were supporting words, my ears heard only the blames
When there was true love around me, my heart felt only the hatreds
When the brain felt more active, my heart felt more depressed
And came wonderful colors, made me realize who AM I…

I would say that these colors are not a gift, but it’s the positive vibes, that has flourished my mind with the sweetest, wonderful, beautiful, loveliest things around me.

Thanking the sweetest person, whom I haven’t met, haven’t chat but whom I came across social media. Feeling happy to have such a person who read, understood me through my writings and now means a lot to me.

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone

Standard

Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day

I have come across everyone wishing their mother, the mothers and to be mother. But when I remember mother, first I just remember of my grandpa – who is the most important cause for what I am today, then my hubby – who has been my everything, then my kids – who is being my energy booster and then grand ma and mom.

Wish Happy Mother’s Day to not only the mothers and to be mother, but to everyone who has showered their motherhood feeling. Mother hood is something more valuable than anything in the world and also that has power to change anything in the world. I also completely agree that everyone has a mother hood with in, spread – love, care and affection to everyone.

Happy Mothers Day

It is said that only a mother can understand her kid, but fortunately I am glad that I have few of friends who understands, trust and stand with me anytime. Happy and being blessed to be with these people who shower their endless affection and care on me.
