Today I woke up with a strange sense of well-being. It evaporated rather quickly on seeing my help sweep the floor that suggested she had some affection for dust and didn't want to see it go. But on the whole, it was a good feeling when I woke up.

Later in the day, I'll be going to Pune to be with mom. And I was just thinking about it Some months ago, there was so much grief that I didn't know what to do and how to handle it. At that time, my mother helped me immensely. Today she is unwell and I have broken up. There is sadness now too but it feels different. Like this too will pass.

It's like you first learn a coping method. Then you have to apply it in a seemingly more difficult situation. Then after you have been tested and you make the cut, hopefully, that situation never happens again.

You wrote Pune instead of Mumbai. Have never seen such mistake from you. Very stressed ? Take care
