A family is the only one which stands with you in all ups and downs of your life.
Be it shitting in nappy in childhood, be it breaking glasses while playing cricket, be it you getting hurt while running, be it getting admission in a good school, be it studying the most difficult subject in academics, be it your bad friend circle, be it your career and be it your marriage, a family never leaves you alone. Everyone leaves; childhood friends leave when you change school, school crush leaves when you go to college, professors leave when they get retired, husband leaves when they don’t find you good enough, your children leave when they go to further studies; but who never leaves? Family!
A father never says ‘No’ to anything, even if his pocket is empty, he carries you in his hands and shows the entire market to you. Yes he scolds you sometimes, but for your good. He works for his family the whole day, for his entire life, without a single ouch. He pays for you, with the money he earns by working in scorching summer and biting winter. He becomes a machine for his beloved family, and sacrifices all the fun and enjoyment. His sweat, his tired eyes at night, his paining body after work, and a fake smile on his face, respect them!
A mother is the one who devotes first one-third of her life to her parents and studies, and the rest of it to her married life, to make it a happily-married one. She cleans you everyday in childhood, does all the chores and stays with you in your emotional times. She always tries to diminish the gap between a mother and a child, and tries to be friends with you. She does not do job after marriage, just to take care of you! She sometimes listens to taunts of her in-laws, just to be with her family. She leaves her family and goes to a new one, just to make the life better of an unknown male. She has a very soft heart. She stealthily cries alone in a room when you go away from her, she searches for topics so that she can call you and talk to you, she gets bored in home when you go to college, she looks at the clock again and again to analyze when will you come back from college, she gets tensed when you get late, she calls you and at times,calls your friends to know where her darling child is, she is ready with hot and fresh food when you come home tired. She takes care of you like a maid, and that too, for free. She spends one-fourth of her day in kitchen, just to give justice to your taste buds. You spill the milk, she clears it. You get bruises, she gets hurt. You cry, she cries. You feel cold in winter, she puts quilt on you. You do mistakes in school, she listens to tramps of your teachers. You beat someone, she apologises. Someone hurts you, she fights for you! When you are in anger and say something bad to her, she pretends she has taken it lightly, but later she cries and blames herself for not giving you good upbringing. She is the most emotional person in your life, and you are her most precious and prized treasure.
For me, a new full-form of FAMILY is-
F – Father
A – And
M – Mother
I – I
L – Love
Y – You
