Hi friends, I have celebrated my 25th marriage anniversary on 24th of this month and that was a small family gathering with about 25 members, most of who traveled about 300 kilometer distance to attend it. Though I was thrilled to receive my most beloved people including my bothers, sisters in laws, bother in laws to my house, there was some thing lacking in the whole atmosphere. In the course of the function I felt it was my parent’s absence due to which I was unable to enjoy the function whole heartedly. I have seen the hardships they have gone through in bringing up us and when the time came to relax and enjoy their remaining life with their grand children, it was very late and they left us for ever. Whenever I am in the middle of happy moments, a guilty feeling is covering my mind about it. I got so many occasions to serve them but not utilized them properly. I have to live with this guilty feeling through my remaining life and believe I deserve this punishment. As a tribute to my mother and an eye opener to all those who are lucky to still have their mom around them – here is a beautiful message.
