Moments are valued only when they become memoriesIn life, everyone gets to experience many things, some pleasant and some not. Some of these experiences are forever etched in our life as memories and we can recall them even after many years. Who knows, the present moment that we are living in, might one day become a memory and we will cherish them years after. I am always reminded of the moment, when as a 5-6 years old big boy, on my insistence once, my mother carried me in her lap while we were on our way to some place. Of the umpteen times she might have carried me, this one particular moment with my mother has been etched permanently in my memory. Also etched are those moments with my father, every time I used to ride with him in his cycle, me sitting in the front and he used to amuse me by pedaling the cycle very fast. For me, he was the fastest cyclist then. Often boasted this to my son. With both my parents no more in this world, that is all I can do, cherish these and the other such golden moments with them. Wish we could value every moment as we live and not wait until they become memories.
