This last weekend we went with our families to see Ammachi. This is the first time we have received darshan, gotten a hug, from Amma since Sara and I have gotten married and started our own families. Sara and I were super nervous as to how the kids would behave, and how they would handle the certain amount of discomfort with these sort of things. The weather was hot, it’s chaotic, there was quite a bit of walking, the food wasn’t kid friendly and overall there isn’t much for toddlers to do. Also, while these sort of events were normal for us, our husbands had never been to anything like this. Lets just say that we were anticipating some culture shock from our families. However, there was a sort of grace to this visit. We received our darshan tokens right away, our kids were pretty good acting and they handled all of these elements well.
