Quote Challenge- Day 1 of 3

My elder one, all of 11, is away for a Karate tournament in Chennai. This is the first time he is on his own, with just his team for company. The karate master has completely banned talking on the phone, except for once before bedtime. He called me up last night and the first thing he says is,

"Mamma, I am missing you, and I just wanted to hear your voice." 

It just melted my heart to hear that! Almost brought a lump to my throat. A mother's voice continues to be the most reassuring sound for a child, no matter how old he is, isn't it? And that is exactly what inspired the quote for today...

             A child may grow out of a mother's lap, but never out of her heart!"

Here's a collage of pictures of my first born, smug on my lap, clinging to me like he'd never let go and then all grown up and ready to fly! 

Thank you Parul for nominating me for this wonderful challenge. I have turned to quotes too many times to keep count of it now! And there is always that one perfect quote which totally sums up what I have in mind! 

On day one I nominate these three awesome bloggers, Chicky, Roshni and Devika to share their quotes with us...


This is what the 3-Day Quote Challenge is all about.

1. Post one of your favorite quotes (different quote on each day) on three consecutive days. The quote can be from your favorite book, author, or your own.
