My Mother's Day blessing

This morning, while I was taking exercise, I heard Ranjana on the phone talking, talking, talking. She had called her mother for Mother's Day. For so long, I was hearing her voice. I said to myself, "O God, luckily my mother is not on earth so I don't have to spend so much time on the phone."

I was doing wrist curls on my machine. Then, what did I see? O my God, I saw two ethereal hands twisting my wrists. Then I saw that it was my mother who was twisting them. Here I was saying that I didn't have to talk to my mother because she is in the other world! So this is how we observed Mother's Day.
