Parents have more or less sacrificed their youthful days for the happiness of their ChildrenThe more I think of their endless sacrifices that they have made for us I am unsure if we can ever give back to them what they have done for us.
No matter how old we become, in front of our parent's eyes, we will always remain a child. We cannot give back their dreams which they have sacrificed for us at the various phase of their life. But as they get older they might think of the dreams that they had which they had to postpone it for our happiness. It could be a very small dream or a big dream but their priorities changed as soon as they became a parent. May be we might not be able to imagine the magnitude of how much they had to sacrifice their dreams for us.
Let's not forget anything that they did for us which even includes the smallest sacrifice that they had to do for us. We may not be able to fulfill all their dreams but if we can at least fulfill few of their desires as per our ability I am sure that we can treasure their happiness forever in our hearts. Parents say that children are the greatest heritage but I would like to say that parents are our greatest blessings. They are the ones who love us unconditionally.
Sending them to old age home is never a solution because they took care of us from the day we saw the first ray of light so should we not take care them when they need us the most?
Our society says that a son should take care of his parents. Why only sons and not daughters? Parents take care of sons and daughters equally so even daughter can equally take care of her parents.
