We get so busy and lost in growing up, we forget that our parents are growing old too. Just like they have been there for us all their lives, it’s time for us to be there for them.
Just hug them and tell them, you are always there for them. Give them your love, care and respect, the 3 thing any person of any age wants in his life.
Here’s the heart touching story about mother & son.
After his father’s death, the Son decided to leave his mother at an old age home and visited her on and off.
Once he received a call from the old age home… “Your mom is very serious please come and visit her.” So the son went and saw that his mom was very critical and on her dying bed.
He asked: Mom what can I do for you.
Mom replied : “Please install fans in the old age home, as there are none. Also put a fridge for betterment of food because many times I slept without food”.
The son was surprised and asked : Mom, while you were here you never complained, but now you have few hours left and you are telling me all this, why?
Mom replied : “It’s OK dear, I’ve managed with the heat, hunger pain, but when your children will send you here, I am afraid you will not be able to manage.!”
“Love your parents and treat them with loving care for you will only know their value when you see their empty chair…”
