The Joy Of Life
The Joy Of Life
It was a beautiful sunny day, Krishna woke up early that day. Suddenly a voice from the door front screaming," Wake up Krishna, Wake up, look who has come to see you" was heard loud. Krishna understood it is his mother who is screaming and replied: " Amma, please give me 5 minutes, I shall come." Swiftly he got from the bed, gazed at the window. For a moment he enjoyed the morning sunrise beauty and thanked the nature for gifting another beautiful day and walked straight towards the door of his room. Oh! my dear grandfather and grandmother, how are you? shouted Krishna and ran towards them and hugged his grandparents. For the 10-year-old Krishna, his grandparents were his best companions at home. They recently had been out of town and visited their daughter, Krishna's aunt for some time and they were back now. As usual, they got few gifts for Krishna, he was overwhelmed with joy and did check with his grandparents about his aunt & her family. He started to play with his grandparents and started to converse about what happened when they had been out of town.
Krishna shared a unique bond with his grandfather and grandmother. He did tell them how he missed them when they were out of town and asked them never to leave and go. The grandmother shed tears out of joy when Krishna spoke about missing them. She looked up at the horizon and closed her eyes and wished that she and her husband should live long to spend time with their lovely Krishna. She now opened her eyes and whispered to Krishna's grandfather that they are blessed to have a grandchild like Krishna and they both shared a mutual smile reciprocating the joy of life. That is when Krishna's grandfather said the family is a great strength for all of us. Living together under the same roof and sharing and caring for each member of the family strengthens the bond and encourages everyone to be successful. Krishna nodded as if the little mind understood the underlying meaning of his grandfather's words. He looked up at the sky and uttered wow! its a beautiful pleasant sunset and smiled at his grandparents and held their hands and headed up to the home.
Message: Children grow strong when they bond with their grandparents. Let us all feel and live the Joy of Life.
