LOVING CHILDREN is a nature of all human beings or creatures that have been blessed with a gift of a child by God. A person without the feeling of love is like a body without soul. The life of husband and wife completes only when the child enters into their life. When the baby learns to speak, the first word comes out of the mouth is MAA and than Papa. You can realize the feeling through which you were going at that time. So every proud parent can self assess why they love their children.
The reason that parents love their children is not because parents want some reward for doing so, but because they want their children to be on a higher spiritual level in every way, because they want their child to set greater standard and goals in life and they also hope that their children will be someone who is needed by the people, the nation, the world and a greater being. Parents do not love their children for their own sake but for the sake of something greater. Thats the parents’ love towards their children. Irrespective of their (parents) affordability, they have catered to all our needs. Did we even bother to ever think about the sacrifices they made to accommodate many of our wishes? Did we ever say thanks for all that they have done for us?
It is really very shameful to say no, because we don’t ever realize the value of our parents. We have forgotten that they are the creator of our lives. They are the one who make us learn about the do’s and dont's in our lives. Because of their worships and prayers we are facing the challenges of this hard-hearted world with ease.
Simultaneously, when it comes to our children, we always think that we should put them in a good school. Regardless of the amount of donation, we ensures that we will give our child the best education and best things of the world. But we tend to forget that our parents have sacrificed a lot for our sake to see us happy, so it is our responsibility to ensure that their dreams are also realized, which they failed to fulfil when they were young, it is our responsibility to ensure that they experience all those dreams and their life is complete. Because no feeling is as good and as great as making our parents happy by showing our gesture and respect which they truly deserve from us. Let us realise that old age is a second childhood and just as we take care of our children, the same attention and same care need to be given to our parents and elders.
Rather than my parents saying thank you to me, I would say sorry for making them wait so long to cherish their small dreams. I do realise how much they have sacrificed for me and I will do my best to give the best possible attention to all their wishes. Moral principles teach people to love their parents because under their blessing the heavens and all the gods lays. We are not even able to repay their debt of nurturing our lives in making us good human beings. As we all are immortal and we have to reach God once. But that is in the future which is not seen by anyone in this life. At present, God has sent us their angels in the form of parents and teach us every time that we should respect them, love them and give them every happiness we can. Because the blessings of our parents will open the doors of heaven for us. So we should love them and seek their blessings.
We might achieve many things in life and career. We might be the legend in our field. We might be very happy in life. But I can never give respect to the person unless they respect their parents. Without loving our parents, whatever we achieve in life is simply meaningless. Remember, only if we love our parents, our children will love us. Whatever we do may come back to us at the end of our life.
