I love you Dad

dad My dad is my Hero. I love my Dad. All of us do and it wont make any difference if I say that “I love my dad most”. I bet here I would have serious competition. I love my dad not because he is the richest man on earth, not because he has good connections, not because he has provided for us, I love him because I know what ever happens he would be there for me. I cant even think of a day without my dad. He gave up all his wants and aspirations just to take care of me and my brother and sister along the way.

He has always been on my side but also taught me and at times very sternly what is wrong. Today I have the confidence to do what ever it want to do with my life and my Dad trusts me so much that I would never do something wrong which would even bring a doubt to his confidence. As kids we were close to our Mom more than our Dad and there were several times when we needed any thing we just went to her and she would get every thing done for us.

We never realized that we didn’t talk much to our dad. But before it was too late some small things made me realize that I need to be close to Dad to too. There are still some things that I have not told Dad but I know he knows but he never would ask me directly because he knows I would be telling him at the right time. I would do anything for my Dad but I know he wont let me. I now am closer to my Dad than before.

There was a time when I was the only child, my mom used to work morning to noon and dad noon to night just because they never wanted me to stay alone or with some one else. This just proves how much they love me. They have given me everything some things that I asked for and most that they thought would be appropriate for me. I might not be the best child but I know they are proud of me and there have been times when it shows in their eyes and that makes me so happy.

The credit to my life goes to my Dad who underwent a lot, gave up a lot and compromised a lot for me and my siblings. I hope I would do the same if not better for my kids.


Parents… Touching story…

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son. Suddenly a crow perched on their window.

The Father asked his Son, “What is this?”

The Son replied “It is a crow”.

After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd time, “What is this?”


The Son said “Father, I have just now told you “It’s a crow”.

After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time,

What is this?”

At this time some ex-pression of irritation was felt in the Son’s tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff. “It’s a crow, a crow”.

A little after, the Father again asked his Son t he 4th time, “What is this?”

This time the Son shouted at his Father, “Why do you keep asking me the same question again and again, although I have told you so many times ‘IT IS A CROW’. Are you not able to understand this?”

A little later the Father went to his room and came back with an old tattered diary, which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read that page. When the son read it, the following words were written in the diary :-

“Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time h e asked me the same question again and again for 23 times. I did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child”.

While the little child asked him 23 times “What is this”, the Father had felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times and when today the Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.


If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak to them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble and kind to them. Be considerate to your parents.From today say this aloud, “I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child. They have always showered their selfless love on me.

They crossed all mountains and valleys without any problem to make me a person presentable in the society today”.

Say a prayer to God, “I will serve my old parents in the BEST way. I will say all good and kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave”.
