Life is like a Ferris Wheel Ride | #WordlessWednesday

Hi all!

A Wonderful WordlessWednesday to all my blogging buddies out there! Natasha, a dear friend and my amazing co-host has very kindly consented to host this week’s Blog Hop on my behalf, even though she is on a break and I cannot thank her enough for keeping our weekly linky party going, especially after our best ever record last week (we had 24 linkups, can you believe it?) Thank you all for showing so much love by sharing your smashing posts. I was on cloud nine until the devastating news of Mom’s Biopsy report threw everything into a tizzy. She was detected with the big C this Monday and I’ve gone totally numb with shock ever since, simply unable to process it. Shock, anger, disbelief, worry and pain alternating, I didn’t know how to react. After a  lot of struggle, I’ve had to remind myself that this is the time to be strong. I have to be rock-solid. As a daughter, I cannot let her down. I must pull myself up and be strong for her, for the rest of the family and for myself. It is hard, to say the least, and every moment right now, is a struggle for me, but hope keeps me going. Hope keeps us going as a family.

I’ve been deliberating on whether to post or not, this week, in the light of my current situation but decided to go ahead with it anyhow, because I need your moral support and your prayers for our mom who is about to undergo a critical surgery tomorrow. We desperately need your prayers, dear friends, and we need you to keep our Mom in your thoughts and hold her in light for the coming days. 

This week’s image of a Ferris wheel ride in Cape Town puts my week into perspective. It is so ironic, you know, that just a few days back, things were going good and I thought I was at the top, riding the crest and life was getting back to normal after the rough last two months, and now, as I type this, you know we’re not far from hitting the bottom, once again. But, that’s life. Staying hopeful is the only way forward.

All we can do right now is stay in our seats, and hang on, until hopefully, we reach the top again. Until then, please keep Mom in your prayers, dear friends.

P.S. I have been caught up with too many things so pardon my delay in responding to your comments to our previous week’s linkups. I will, I promise, stop by each one of your posts and comment as soon as I can find that little window of opportunity. Until then, please do bear with me! 

Gratefully yours,

      Thank you for your prayers, Suzy! Mom is slowly recovering from the surgery. I’m taking care of her as she is currently staying with me, which gives me a lot of solace!

  • Vinitha


    Hugs, Esha. I am so sorry to hear this. I will keep your mom in my prayers. Don’t worry everything will be all right. You take care and don’t hesitate to call me or ping me whenever you need a vent. I am right here. Please do take care of yourself. And don’t bother about responding to comments and all. <3

    • Esha MD

      Thank you so much, dear Vinitha! Your kind words and your support mean a lot to me and I know that despite being busy, you have taken the time to reach out to assure me of your support, which I shall always be indebted to from the depths of my heart. Thank you for supporting our linky party week after week by joining in and making it a success for all those of us who participate every week. Means a lot!!!

    My Dearest Esha,

    What a heart-felt post. I know it would not have been easy to put this together in these testing times. But like I said, “This too shall pass.” Hang on to all the faith that you have,

    All my love, prayers, healing vibes are with Mashima. I know she is a fighter. I can see that in her picture. She will sail through this and emerge strong.

    Thank you for hosting the last two weeks when I was away. And don’t worry my healing is mostly in place and I’m more than happy to hold fort if you need to be away for a bit.
    Mashima needs you right now, just be there for her, holding her hand and seeing her through this all. Which I know you already are. 🙂
    Please take good care of yourself too while you are managing things.

    Remember I’m just a phone call away.

    Lots of love, hugs and positive vibes. The force is with you. <3

    • Esha MD

      Thank you for your love and constant support through these tough times and even otherwise! Thank you for being there, for the prayers you garnered for us and for sharing the comforting words from everyone in your Connect Ticket family! So deeply grateful we are, for that!
      I’m so glad I have your support for keeping this linky party going when I’ve not been able to post or host, for that matter! Thanks for always being there, my dear friend! Much love, hugs and happy vibes for you too <3

  • Alana


    I am sending you thoughts of love and support, Esha, so you (and your mother) can have all the strength and support you need in the coming days, weeks and months.

    • Esha MD

      That really means a lot to me, dear Alana! Trust me, it can work wonders to a tired, sleep-deprived daughter who wants to see her mom make it through a tough test where anything can happen any minute. I’m so grateful to you holding Ma in light and keeping us in your prayers!

  • Anamika Agnihotri


    It comes as a shock to me learning about your mom. Just a week or so ago it was relieving to know your hard times had got behind you and I became hopeful of seeing you around more often. I wish you and Aunty all the strength to face this difficult situation. I shall be keeping Aunty in my thoughts

    • Esha MD

      I know, Anamika! It is a shock from which my family and I have still not recovered! I still find it so very surreal, the day brother called me and told me about the scan report. The good part is Mom has been very positive through this so far and I’m only hoping we can all that we can do, all that is in our capacity to help her heal and come out of this. So deeply grateful that you are keeping Mom and us in your prayers. Faith and hope can work miracles. We’re hoping for nothing less.

  • Nabanita Dhar


    Hugs and prayers for your Mom, Esha. I cannot even imagine what you must be going through. I hope you get the strength to face this. Sending strong and healing vibes your way.

    • Esha MD

      Thank you so much, Nabanita! I’m so grateful that you are keeping Mom in your prayers. I’m banking on every prayer to see us through this. Thanks for being there, Naba. <3
