When my cell heralded a call and I looked at the name, I instantly picked it up as it was my son calling us. He wanted to share something with us and we were so elated that we still have that place in his life when he shares small tit-bits with us. He had to share some innermost feelings and who else he thought to be his confidante than his parents. I am overwhelmed and am grateful to God for such little joys of life. These small incidents that I have deliberately called “small joys” are what in fact are the most important assets of our life. It is emotional repayment of the love that we have invested.
Sometimes I wonder why people don’t understand such simple logic. If you have not invested money or deposited in a bank, can you go to retrieve it? Emotions are like money deposits. You have to be wise to deposit and invest emotions with your loved ones so that you can have emotional support at times when you need it.
When you called us to share your innermost feelings, we felt privileged my son! You could have shared those feelings with anyone else but since you chose us, indicates that we have invested our emotions in a judicious manner, at east when it comes to our kids!
Though I cannot say for sure that I have invested my money in a judicious manner, but was there any need for the same? No, I don’t think so.
