How They KEEP...

Video via YouTube 

My husband is an invisible user of the social media sites. He's there but you'd hardly see him commenting or sharing content. Nobody remembers when and what was his last status update. But when he shared this video a couple of days back, my instant reaction was to watch it, to see what was so special that had got my man into action.

To say that this 3.5 minutes long video was heart-touching would be the least. I cried like a baby after watching it. I did not ask myself why. I just sat there with tears rolling down my cheeks.

Parents are the real guardian angels. 

The warmth, the care and the affection a parent's heart carries is unparalleled. My mind fails to comprehend- how they KEEP their desires and their dreams at bay for the love of their children; how they work hard to KEEP their children aloof from all the misery and sorrow; how they KEEP the smile on their face through all thick and thin; how they endeavor to KEEP their children's smile intact through it all; how they KEEP their kids before themselves, always.

A salute to all the hard-working, affectionate and caring Parents!
