via Daily Prompt: Priceless
As a kid, mom and dad, you had laid a foundation of priceless gems in me and my siblings. Gems in the form of moral and ethical values, humility, being grateful, faith, adjustments, courage and the like.
Whenever, the wall of my being, cracked in doubt, about truth or lie, mom and dad, you filled my cracks with the right bit of advice in the form of anecdotes, stories which I could follow and made me strong.
Whenever I cracked with arrogance and anger you educated me the values of being humble and patient.
When I felt low, you taught me the virtue of being grateful.
When I buckled under pressure and fell, you were there to hold my hand and support me and get me back on my feet.
Even today, when I falter between right and wrong, I am able to reap the values and benefits of the priceless gems you imbibed in me.
No doubt, I have added a lot to my collection of gems, in the form of different experiences and have learnt a lot in and from life. I am able to add levels very easily, without worrying about a collapse and I can do this as the foundation is strong.
Thank you dear parents, for the strong foundation you laid years ago to help me deal with different load bearing structures in life.
This post is dedicated to my dear parents, with all my love 🙂
