What hapeens when anything is squared? Obviously it is doubled! Isn’t it great to have a double – a double scoop of your favorite ice cream comes to the mind straight away, doesn’t it? And what if god blesses you with two children together – yes, I’m talking about twins. It’s a miracle, a bonus, a bounty – just joy squared!
I have always been fascinated by twins. I can understand all the trouble a mother endures carrying them, nuturing them and all of that but just visualize the joy, the warmth, the love they bring – all doubled. Each child when he or she comes into this world brings a uniqueness along with him that is only his or hers – imagine the pleasure of having that uniqueness split into two. Apart from similar looks, you get similar personalities, likes, dislikes and tastes too! It’s a miracle in the truest sense.
Last evening once again I witnessed joy squared – a pair of an year old twins in the pram with their mother. It’s always been a treat to watch the two of them since the past few months. The mother is very regular in taking them for walks in a double seater pram. During winters it was late mornings and early evenings and now during summers it is vice versa – early mornings and late evenings. Whenever I see them my joy is squared, for sure. Both are boys and are very communicative. There is hardly anyone on the road who moves without giving them a second look and a smile. Usually all kids get such an attention but as I say it’s in a double doze here as well. The proud mother gladly receives all the compliments with open arms (she’s used to it by now!).
So, next time when you receive something a little more than normal, just relax and be assured that it is nothing but joy squared and relish it with all your heart.
