Have seen a bowl of milk getting warmed on a gas stove.
This is a typical scene in almost every Indian household, where your mom tells you to watch over the bowl so the milk doesn’t get spilled over.
And there you are looking at that bowl, unblinking.
But the moment you look away even for a teeny- tiny second, the event you feared has already taken place.
If this has happened to you then I can assume that you have also seen how hot that bowl gets or the milk inside it. How much it heats up so that when it cools down, there’s this thick layer of cream on top of it.
You enjoy that cream without thinking how much that milk had to heat up and get boiled for you to have that cream.
Similarly, you never know how much your parents had to boil in the scorching heat of life for you to have everything you want. How much they suffered and sacrificed even the littlest of things for you to have everything.
We may respect them for this, and love them eternally and show our gratitude all our lives but it is never enough.
You know how sometimes we unintentionally take things for granted. Like we know we shouldn’t but we do. And then we lose it. For good!!!
So what I want to say is…. don’t just eat the cream.
Be grateful that the milk boiled up so much for you.
Be grateful for all things no matter the size.
Be grateful for people in your life. They really are what makes your life beautiful and liveable.
And be happy !!! Because that’s important too you know… like really important 😅😂
P.s- This blog was the result of a conversation I had with my husband. And thanks to him, I’m back to writing.
