In that respect, I feel grateful that Gy gets to spend time and learn from her great-grandmother.
Living in the same city, we try and visit her every two weeks or so. Once the vacation comes around, we try and spend a few weeks at a stretch. In this time, Gy revels in helping with the things that her Thaathi does: washing her own clothes, putting them to dry, walking in the garden, feeding the stray cats that come home every evening, praying, playing card games and folding clothes and putting them away.
She gets a simple satisfaction when she manages to do all of this and the quality of the time spent truly warms my heart. While the rest of us may not realise the inherent value of these little mundane tasks, Gy is soaking and imbibing the goodness that is her great-grandmother.
We have more to be thankful for than we can imagine.
