The mirror

As she looked at the reflection in the mirror, she was
astounded. There she was her little daughter all dressed up as a bride. And her
mind went back to the time when she was a bride. Her daughter looked almost the
same- all the more pretty though! But the reflection that she saw in the mirror
was hard to believe. It seemed just yesterday when her daughter would stand in
front of the mirror when she was getting dressed. She remembered her little
girlโ€™s failed but cute attempts to wrap around her saree. The times sheโ€™d
scolded her as a teenager for standing in front of the mirror forever getting
dressed seemed just few days ago. Time had indeed flown! Her daughter had grown
up in front of that mirror. Tears streamed down her face. The thought of her
daughter going away made her sad. She would miss her! But she wiped her tears
away as she walked towards her daughter whose smile only made her look more
beautiful. Her daughter was happy and that is all that mattered to her.

    This certainly reflects the thoughts of so many mothers when their daughters prepare to be married. Well done.
