IWD Celebration – My Gift

What was your International Women’s Day gift?

Well, I got a wrapper😂


My 5-year-old gave me a gift to commensurate international women’s day.

‘Mummy!’ Seddie called.

‘Yes,’ I answered without looking up, still hammering away on my keyboard.

‘Happy international women’s day, mummy.’

I paused momentarily, looked up, and smiled.

‘Here is a gift for you’; he continued, extending a beautifully folded ‘wrapper’ with a smile.

A big smile engulfed my face, and my heart melted in admiration of his thoughtfulness.

How did heaven find me deserving of this royal cuteness, I thought as I hugged him tightly.

It was the highlight of my day.

When my husband came home, I boasted of my grand gift and proudly guided him to my work desk to show him my gift of love.

He must have wondered why this 5-year-old keeps showering me with love. It almost feels like they are in a competition to love on me❤️❤️❤️.

As I spread out the wrapper to my awe-struck husband, my daughter, Didi screamed!

‘Seddie! you took the wrapper I use for my sewing lessons to mummy as a gift?’

‘Soooooo? Does it matter? It is my gift!’ I responded in Seddie’s defense while watching him smile sheepishly.

Now to answer that unspoken question😉-

Yes, I knew it was an old wrapper!!! Yet I still loved the innocent and honest intent of the giver.

My husband had a good laugh; we all did.

Hope you also had a reason to laugh and celebrate?

Happy international women’s day to the great women blazing the trail in their professions while juggling their life roles.

You are always admired!!!
