At the small postal station near where my mother lives this happened day before yesterday .
The gentleman behind the desk , a tall man from India wearing a turban by the name of Harsha , is always polite and conversational with my mother asking her 'how do you like retirement ?'. I know my mother always enjoys the conversations as she is very personable . Lately my mother has been going through every heart test they can come up with because she fainted a few months back. She brought this up in casual conversation with Harsha. He jokingly said 'but your a nurse cant you get another one ?'. They both laughed. This man who never had even shook my moms hand before, came around the counter and wrapped his arms around her giving her a gentle hug saying ..
"You can have my heart . There now you have my heart you will be fine " .
Such a wonderfully sweet gesture touched my mothers heart bringing tears to her eyes. Thank you Harsha for your gentle kindness to my mother, I know she is scared by this heart stuff, but wont admit it, and your gesture made her day .
