A mother of 3 whom we engaged to do some cleaning at our premises was pulling out the leaves from some branches we were going o dispose off.   Curious, I asked her what she was doing and she explained that they were Henna leaves she could use to beautify her nails for Deepavali.  “Henna? Isn’t that something for grey hair?” I asked and she said “Yes but you will have red hair if you use this.”  We both laughed and I thought nothing more of the exchange.  The next day when I met her again, she passed me a small packet of henna shampoo which she had been keeping for some time. She told me that a friend gave it to her after returning from India and she wanted me to have it.  Despite not having very much,  this mother could still find a way to give in a helpful way. I could live with my grey hair but yet  it nice to have darker hair even though it is only for a while J.  It was a small gesture that warmed my heart and put a smile on my face. More importantly, it reminded me that a little thoughtfulness can indeed enhance the quality of life.
