After Mother’s Day and Father’s Day now Parent’s Day is here and yes I am not weary of celebrations but, only looking forward to one. Though I must admit that not so very long ago like many others, I was simply indifferent to these specially marked days of paying tribute to our parents and taking it an opportunity to thank them for their unconditional love and care. Initially I never agreed that there needs to be only one day in the entire year to make our parents happy and who try keep us happy 24*7 for all 365 days in the year.
Of course, I love my parents and as far as I can remember never looked down on them or disrespected them and being a good child mostly obeyed them as well, but, I didn’t also specifically told them that they are important to me and I love them a lot. May it is that we start taking their love and care for granted. I didn’t realised this till had to leave home and go to another country to work and live away from my parents. It is then that I started to miss all the little things that my mother did for me and all the good time my dad spent with me teaching wisdom. It was my first birthday without them, when for the first time I decided to do something special for my mother (as apparently it comes before father’s day or parents day).
Earlier I had given cards or coffee mugs to my mom just because my friends were giving to theirs and not because I found it relevant but it was this time that I was really looking forward to make my mom feel special and tell her all my feelings. So, after much thoughts and beliefs I sent her a gorgeous flower bouquet with her favourite shades of roses and a caricature telling her that she is the best mother in this world. That day when I talked to her on the phone I could clearly spot the joy she was beaming with and it was then that I fully realised what all I have been missing all those good times. So now with Parent’s Day I have another great opportunity to pamper my parents and tell them they are the best and I am thankful for everything.
