A parent’s love is unconditional. No matter how busy we are, or the fact that we never make time for them, their love never changes. So busy we are in making a life for ourselves that we forget to spend time with our parents – the only thing they want to.
Celebrated chef Vikas Khanna shared today an emotional message about his father, and it will surely make you tear up.
‘On Jan 31, 2015, as a morning ritual I called home and to speak to my Mom and Dad. Dad was super excited for 2 reasons, Serena Williams was playing Finals for Australian Open and Mercedes had signed me up for their association. He told me that it was his dream to drive his son’s Merc. I laughingly said that why didn’t you tell me before, he joked and said “you had never asked.” We laughed as usual and disconnected.
At noon on the same day, he passed away. No child can ever be ready for this loss; it leaves a hole in your heart. Makes you feel empty, betrayed by Gods and unprotected to the World.
I still wonder about the line he said “you had never asked.”
So many times since that unfortunate day, I wish I could have done more for him, made him proud, and fulfill all his wishes.
Life lesson - Don’t wait for a single more moment. Our parents might never ask for anything and just give all their lives for us. Surprise them, spoil them, hug them, ask them about their dreams, and loveeee them. Because one day you might be able to buy a fleet of cars, but you cant buy time.’
Parents never ask for anything – the only thing they want is our time. We always priorities everything else over them – career, love, money, social life. Had they done the same when we were growing up, we would have not been where we are today. Take out time for them, take them out, tell them how much you love them, treat them to a special dinner, show them the kid they raised turned out to be worth their love.
