I was confident that the car would stop. And it did.
The question loomed large in my mind: Did I trust the unseen universe as much?
Honest answer? Sometimes yes, but most times, no.
Hasn’t this kind universe taken care of us all?
Yet, why didn’t I feel this same kind of confidence as a parent… like I felt while crossing the street in San Francisco?
Recently, my helper’s visa was refused by the US Consulate. It came as a blow as she had been to the US with us, twice before. Her presence would make Mohit’s trip more comfortable. I struggled with the decision and tried my best to make it work – my way.
Despite all my efforts and prayers, things didn’t work out as I envisaged. Mohit wasn’t able to travel with us.
But, a couple of incidents that occurred during the trip made me realize how difficult this trip would have been for Mohit.
Traveling without Mohit certainly wasn’t what I wanted. But in the circumstances it was the best solution.
