Everyone can’t agree more to the fact that our parents help us, love us, and care for us, so why do few treat them horrifyingly? We may be mad at them, but deep down they will always love us and care for us. So why can’t we as well do the same!!!
Someone known to me is in the hospital and I had gone there to pay her a visit. And there I saw another old lady admitted and the medical staff bit agitated. On asking I get to know that she was the mother of a prof and after leaving his 88yr old mother in the hospital, they hardly thought the need to look at her needs. And the night earlier this family forgot to send her dinner, while breakfast could not be delivered as “They were bit busy”!!! The old lady was distressed and was going on calling God, asking him to relieve her of the misery. On way to the hospital I had taken some fruits which I decided to hand over to the medical staff and asked them to give her.
The whole thing disturbed me a lot. How can a son behave in such a manner towards his own mother!! And maybe this happens with many across the world.
Do they even realize what their mothers have done for them??? You sacrifice one small thing for them and they’ll sacrifice another million for you. That in itself is more the reason for us to treat them with more respect, appreciation and love. When we had been ill they had taken care of us, must have gone through sleepless night for us, so why not appreciate this fact and give them more than what they deserve from us!!!!
Frankly speaking, most of the time they don’t even ask or expect too much from us. Just maybe little bit of communication, love and care in this old age. You don’t have to say “Salutations, paternal and maternal units,” and even though this may make them laugh, deep down they just yearn for an “I love you” from you.
Realize this fact – Parents are NOT ignorant of how we feel or our needs, whatever is the age. Hence, Adult or Child, one needs to know how to treat them. And if you don’t want to do it for their sake, do it for yourself. I strongly believe one thing – If you don’t learn now how to treat your parents as they deserve, you’ll spend sometime of your life regretting your selfishness and ignorance. But by then it could be too late.
And yes, Hats off to this Mr. God and his ironical actions. Here’s likes of us who went on crying not to take our mother’s, but all that fell on deaf ears. And there’s the lady who is herself calling you to relieve her of this misery, both mental and physical, but again you play deaf. There are too many questions you’ll have to reply the day we meet Mr. God!!!
