# Family # Love

Love Byte # 5 - Love is what makes the ride worthwhile ..

If yesterday's post was about a mother's love , today's is from a mother I love ..
My mother , she's not a blogger but that wasn't going to stop her from contributing ;-) or maybe it was her daughter's insistence or maybe her enthusiasm to always be a part of my life :-D ..
whatever the reason I'm glad she wrote this and Mom , thank you :) ..

Last year in February , she took up the challenge of writing a love byte each day of the month and she did it! This year she’s come up with this wonderful idea of involving others to contribute and share their thoughts on love. I’m proud of my eldest daughter and as a proud mom I’ve been following her blog since she began writing over a year and a half back and am happy to see shades of her maturity and sensitivity reflected in what she writes. Infact I’ve often been moved to tears or had a lump in my throat while reading her posts particularly the ones about family.

LOVE to me is ..well it’s difficult to express it in words coz for me.. Love is more about how it makes you feel yet I make this attempt and I dedicate it to all the people in my life who mean the world to me ..

Love to me is companionship , its an unspoken understanding , its a comfort zone ..

Love to me is always WANTING to spend as much time as possible with my loved ones, talking about anything and everything that’s happened in the hours not spent together , sharing the eventful and the not so eventful moments of the day ..

Love to me is always WANTING to happily share the responsibilities that are such an intrinsic part of every relationship , about balancing each other out , harmonizing and syncing energies ..

The fulfillment of this WANTING energizes my days…
The presence of love makes me happy and contented.. it’s absence sends me down in the dumps.

Henry Drummond said ,

"As you look back upon your life, you will find , that the moments when you really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love."

and that sums up love for me, Love is what makes life's journey..thrilling.. exhilarating…breathtaking …Love is what makes the ride worthwhile ..


  1. I love that last line, "Love is what makes the ride worthwhile!" Indeed it is! If it weren't for love to carry us through life's journey, to sustain us through the perils and difficulties of the uphills and downhills, how would we ever make it to the finish line? Lovely food for thought!

  2. awww, that's awesome that your mom contributed to such a great [new] tradition you've started!

  3. How sweet of your mom to do this Priya! "love its an unspoken understanding" ah!! I like that line...so true...let the love bytes keep coming!

  4. This is an exceptionally lovely post! Thank you so very much for sharing it with us!

  5. I think your mom is so right about everything. How great is your mom. You lucky girl.

  6. I so love the fact Priya that Auntie wrote for your blog. Big *hug* to her.. She is truly one of a kind person, and Im so happy to know her :)
    PS: its so therapeutic to read what every one has to say!
