Mother is the best gift that has given to us by god. Having them is such a thankful and splendid treasure in our life.
Much love and compassion is sent to each and every person who may read this and learn how to love and be loved.
It was 5.30 pm. I was on the terrace enjoying the sunset. It was a pleasant evening.As usual I was enjoying the wind on my face. My mobile rang. I checked the number, it was my father.
With smile on my face and with anxiety I attended the call, He asked me to start to my home place immediately.
When I reached my home I was informed that my mother was suffering with health problem and she was admitted in hospital.
I was confused because I was never before exposed to such situations.
I regained my senses and my speech after a while.
We know that our time on earth is finite. Still, it is one of the most painful experiences in life.
Doctor predicted “she took all her way and finally she is well.”
I took my confidence and I tried to care her taking all my chance to serve her. But every time I tried to care for her by feeding her or cleaning her, she pushed me away softly.
I realized she did not want me to take care of her.
Because like many other grandparents and mothers do, she gave all her love for granted so she didn’t want me to take care of her.
The way I sat beside her she realized I can take care of her.Somewhere e in her confused mind there is a moment of understanding then she gave me the opportunity to serve her.
“The days I spent with my parents were the best days in my childhood. I demanded love and attention from them and I always got it.”
When I moved ahead busy with my goals, career and life….., she used to call me at least once a week. She used to note my wellness and health. But, I hadn’t called her even once.
I realized how much of their love we had taken for granted.
My mother spent 50 years of her life. “She” a wife and a mother of three children defended the world for her children.
When everything was lost there she fought and she lived with a hope that her children would defend her.
It is said that behind every successful person there is a woman. That may not necessarily be true; however it is true that behind every confident child there is an encouraging mother. Day after day in our impressionable years our mothers either build us up, or tear us down. A child who has a mother who is set on encouraging her/him is a child that starts off with an advantage. Our mothers may not be rich enough to leave us a financial legacy when they go, but a mother who sows encouragement into her child’s heart gives the greatest legacy of all.
Her smile-her rejection, her laugh-her anger, her presence and I looking after her are deeply overwhelming.
That moment I realized the unspoken words.
It is incredible how much comfort can be found in little things.
We live each moment just heartbeats away from our beloved people so please ensure that on any given day we say the things that we would most want the important people in our lives to know.”
A small piece of advice my dear friends, fall back to your parents for anything and everything. I am sure that will make our lives better. Our parents may not understand all our feelings, emotions and thoughts immediately. They may not be so educated, talented & advanced; however I am sure they will make an honest attempt to understand us at any case. And, that attempt would always make the result fruitful. It is because they deny something or go against some of our decisions it does not mean they will do it always. They always understand and all ears to us with an unlimited unconditional eternal love. Please understand your parents & respect the love, hope, dreams & the faith that they kept on you…I sincerely request each and everyone, please never miss your parents. They are the visible gods on earth.
There is no greater gift that you could leave behind than to have left “no words unspoken.”
