I Just...

I just remembered some of the days when I couldn't get sleep...i would ask my mum to run her hands thru my hair and i would soon fall asleep...but if she stopped and i didn't sleep yet I would ask her i still need more :) I am grateful that I have had those simple yet loving childhood memories.
Today as I am tired so much from travelling from my country to US, and my head paining and eyes burning a bit...I still can't get sleep :( I just wish there was someone who would do that lovingly for me to get some rest..

You must've been one lucky little girl with such sweet memories!

Can you try to imagine your mom there with you?

I have a vivid imagination and comfort myself with nice thoughts to fall asleep.


thank you...i remember all the memories of my childhood and adulthood...i don't forget incidents!

Awww...I wish we could be there and rub you hair..... I hope you got some sleep... :)

you are so nice :)

The small comforts of childhood -- the feeling that there was someone who could "just make things right". I guess that's gone forever as soon as we leave the structured world of education, and enter the reality, with its harshness as well as its adventures.

maybe I am lucky to have had good days atleast thats all I treasure J.. :)

A lot of people don't have many happy memories of childhood papri, so yes, I guess you had a comforting start.

I agree J....I have had many harsh memories but i prefer to choose the good ones to remember :)

That's useful, but I think adulthood and its challenges will always catch up with us, and have to be prepared for and dealt with.
