Roots we are...

Yesterday while watching Chutku playing around (Oh! He has begun to sit and crawl now) we found our that for a few moments that we are not there - he screams/cries to draw our attention to him. And when we respond - look at him,smile - he smiles back and goes back to playing. We realised that he just needs us to be around him, once he is done playing - he crawls back to us - to be carried,lifted,hugged - to be reassured that we are there...

And that hit us - Isnt that what we expect out of our parents too - to be reassured that they are there when we want them? Moving out and starting a life of our own in our new home, with Chutku - not very difficult only because we knew that parents were there. Someday when we cant handle the day we can just give them a call and they are there - 2 sets of parents, 4 pairs of hands - to take care -of us,our home, our baby.

We can find our wings, fly the nest - fly far knowing that our roots are strong,that we can come home anytime - no questions asked, no answers needed, all support given -Reassured that we can fly again, we can take off...

Parents - the roots - and they let us find our wings,support us while we learn to fly - find our own paths, yet always waiting to support when we most need them...

  2. Completely agree.. No questions asked, no grudges held.. They can just give u all that they ever had without asking for anything back and we so often take it for granted..

    Good words!
