Life surprises us all the time

I was due to participate at the Board Meeting of Scottish Church College on the 13th and move on to Guwahati for the Triennial of Xavier Board on the 14th.

However, I found myself on 1 Oth traveling homeward as the news of mother passing away reached the early hours of the day.

Having seen Dad leaving us with me the unlikely candidate to be present on occasion, being present was the reverse of the mother who always wanted me to be around when she bid farewell but the promise made in all conditional clauses was not to be.

Each of us gets surprises coming our way from quarters we do not expect: sometimes pleasant and sometimes painful.

Being with the flow and accepting what comes our way with inward resilience makes us grow and mature.

May we find ourselves ever ready to submit our life’s balance sheet. A word of thanks to all the faculty, friends, and colleagues who send messages and offered prayers.

With warm regards,

Fr George Thadathil sdb
Principal, Salesian College
