Sterling Celebration

I am facing yet another paradox in life. Today is the 25th wedding anniversary of my parents. When I woke up in the morning, I was in two minds about wishing mom. But I did wish her and could see a flash of happiness and a streak of pain in her face. Voice laden with grief about not having him with her even on this special day, she said she was doubly missing him today. Being as helpless as ever, I fumbled around for something to distract her...and told her we'll go out for dinner tonight. That seemed to cheer her up slightly. It's not in my ability to bring dad back to her; the best I can do is to try and keep her focus off the void in her life.

Mom and Dad, we wish you a very Happy Anniversary!


hey ..V.. it's really nice that you are being your Mom's strength..it takes a lot of strength to hide your own pain and be there for someone..may God give you the strength to cope with everything and emerge as strong as ever :)

Strength....what a strange paradox that presents in itself at times....but at times just knowing that you are a source of strength for some1 else who is important for you, is enough to give you the strength you need to move on....

wishing you the very best.....
