You are my son shine..

SO,the Big day has finally come.The first day of my son’s College.

Lots of mixed emotions.I am feeling both happy and anxious at the same time.And when emotions become speechless,tears express the feelings distinctly.

As I dropped off my son to his college,joy dripped from my teary lashes in the form of happiness.I returned to an empty house,and while sipping tea from a cup my son gifted me on “Mothers day”, a thought crossed my mind.TIME REALLY FLIES.

It seems just like yesterday when a maid from the Kindergarden School had snatched my bawling Son from my arms and took him forcefully into his class.

The memory of him sobbing away as he waited for me and then running to hug me as he spotted me amongst many more emotionally charged parents is still crisp fresh in my heart.

I sat thinking that there are so many things we postpone coz of our financially motivated priorities. So many movie,or dinner plans cancelled, so many picnics postponed coz of other important chores πŸ˜”.Today I regret every plan I cancelled or every minute I wasted being apart from him that I could have spent making memories with him.While we are postponing our plans,life speeds by…

Procrastination is really a thief of time.

Time is really precious.Spend as much time as possible with your kids coz they really grow up fast.Time is wealth and unlike money, once it is gone we cannot replace it.

A mothers job is to make her children independent of her support or help and the difficult part of it is accepting success with the knowledge that they may not need you as much as u would really like.

Tomorrow your child’s life will be filled with fresh experiences.He will get busy with his career building.So spend time with your children TODAY.As the time is flying become the pilot and maneuver the flight towards making cheerful memories that you will cherish all your life.

Spend time with your children coz very soon you will either be saying ,“WISH I DID IT” or “GLAD I DID IT”

  2. No matter how old they get, they will always need their mother. They will learn to do most things for themselves, but they will always need your wisdom and love!

  3. May God bless you and your family. It is a great time for you. Yes, a mother (and yes fathers like me too) have to make many adjustments in our lives, and do at times leave our desires to do more for our kids.
    And yes, many a times kids do not need gifts or money. They need our time and love.
    Nice post!

  6. Meena, you are so correct about how time flies as our children grow up. I witnessed it with my three daughters and now the same as grandchildren grow up much too quickly. A parent prepares a child to leave the nest someday, but the actual leaving brings all kinds of feelings and thoughts . . . and memories.

    1. Absolutely.And my eldest son is often teased as mummas boy…so when he will get distant it will be a huge change for me to live with.

  7. I absolutely know how you feel, as we dropped off our baby girls to college. The sad part is I don’t think they miss us at all

    1. When the initial euphoria will die down they will surely start missing us.Right now they are flying in the air..everything is new..happened to us also right..but just like us when we realised all this glitter isn’t gold and unconditional and selfless love of parents is a blessing m sure they will miss us.Atleast we can hope for that😊
