Did you smile at your parents before leaving home today? Or may be called them before going to bed?
Well, near or far, we all love our parents unconditionally. However, we forget to express it because we are too busy with our lives. What so ever may be the case, these unsaid moments are what we regret for years to come.
Chef Vikas Khanna took on Facebook to share his thoughts and remind us to live out each moment with our parents.
Read on the post by Vikas:
“On Jan 31, 2015, as a morning ritual, I called home and to speak to my Mom and Dad. Dad was super excited for 2 reasons, Serena Williams was playing Finals for Australian Open and Mercedes had signed me up for their association. He told me that it was his dream to drive his son’s Merc. I laughingly said that can’t before, he joked and said: “you had never asked.” We laughed as usual and disconnected.
At noon on the same day, he passed away. No child can ever be ready for this loss; it leaves a hole in your heart. Makes you feel empty, betrayed by Gods and unprotected to the World.
I still wonder about the line he said: “you had never asked.”
So many times since that unfortunate day, I wish I could have done more for him, made him proud, and fulfill all his wishes.
Life lesson – Don’t wait for a single more moment. Our parents might never ask for anything and just give all their lives to us.
Surprise them, spoil them, hug them, ask them about their dreams, and love them. Because one day you might be able to buy a fleet of cars, but you cant buy time.”
Has this line caught you in the parent’s lap?
