Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt – Cent/Scent/Sent

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio on

I excitedly entered my childhood home after two long years of absence.

As I hugged my nonagenarian mum, I deeply inhaled her, an all too familiar scent…. the Scent of all that she represents…. empathy, selfless love, generosity, patience, and spirituality.

I quickly Sent a prayer of gratitude for my safe arrival in India after an arduous journey from the US.

Next, I typed a thank you text to my thoughtful daughter for surprise gifting me the plane ticket. For, I know she must have paid in hundreds of dollars and quite a few Cents to make my secret longing to be with my mum possible.
