Tiny Shoes

Sandhya opened the old wooden box and stared into it. Her mind wandered to the two previous times she had opened it. Life has its strange ways, she thought.

When her son Rohan had called that morning, she had no inkling that he would convey news that her daughter-in-law Vaishali had delivered a baby boy! It was a little too early. She had been extremely happy on hearing it.

She took the red tiny shoes and ran her hands through it. It was the same one she had put on Rohan and she would now gift it to her third grand-child. Two miscarriages had cast a shadow on two lovely shoes many years ago. Rohan had been God’s blessing and today she was ever so grateful she could use all the shoes she had bought in anticipation of her own motherhood.

I'm an avid reader and writer. Reading gets me a feeling of understanding the world through different perspectives and writing helps me outline my thoughts from the cobwebs that the mind has trapped it in!
