My mother is a housewife. Very soft natured and caring, she takes great care of us without caring for her comfort for us. Throughout all the years in my life, I have been greatly influenced by my parents in many different ways, from the way of thinking to the little everyday habits. No doubt, we inherit the genes of our parents and get basic knowledge, norms from them. What we learn from our parents in the early years will be encrypted in our mind and be reflected in almost every aspect of our behavior.
Two of my brothers are elder to me and the third one is younger. My elder brothers are bank managers. My youngest brother Abdul Aziz which is my best closest brother , he is fourth grade, he is a kid who never knows what happens between our family members he always like to draw stuff and play with me every weekend, actually we play video games some action games , we play wrestling games and so on. Most of the time we go outside ,including my sister in law whom married to my biggest brother she always give us ride to the park , beach , museum , she always try to be nice and lovely to us like she is our sister .
Our family has been recognized for discipline and values. My family puts a great emphasis on values and morals in one's life. Since the beginning of our childhood, we are taught to respect the elders and love the children. We learnt the lesson of promptness and trustworthiness from our grandfather.
There lies a crucial duty from our side too: giving those rights and responsibilities to our parents. Things don't go well always. Recently my mother got sick. She was sacrificing for us, she was awake all night only for us when we used to be kids, but since then when she became sick and alone, no one was worried about her although she kept going and she had long suffering with her sickness. This makes me feel really sad, I cried and I am doing my best to take good care of her.
I remember a few days back when I reached my house; I saw many cars of my brothers' right next to my house. I walked in and giving my greetings to my brothers. There were three brothers and my father. As soon as I entered in my room I heard my father talking to them, giving a small lecture to my three brothers about parents' matters, suddenly my father became mad and started shouting at them for losing their connection with my mother while she is suffering.
Father: "Why are you guys out of your mind? Why is that guys!! Where is your dignity? Is it because you got married, you forget about me and your mother? Can't you at least call once and ask how is everything going with us?
Eldest brother Abdul Majeed: We have been very busy with work! Our bosses are very strict and don't let us skip work hours at all. What can we do?
Elder brother Majid: We have to go for training in the next two days; it is really important and required for a steady growth in our career. It is two week training and we cannot skip it.
Father: Remember kids, you have your own sons and daughters and you will feel that pain the moment they grow up".
My brothers were silent they had no words to say, since then I felt my parents heart. I was hurt and angry at my elder brothers for ignoring the sufferings and pain my mother was facing and I planned to be the best among all of my brothers. I learned from my brother's mistakes, to not fall in trap as they did. I made a promise to myself that day that no matter what; I will never ignore my parents and will support them in every aspect of life till I can. With GOD's grace she is getting better now and I am trying to take as much care of her as I can. I am spending almost all my time with her in the hospital along with my father and monitoring her progress regularly. I make sure that she is given medicines on time. I just love the smile on her face when she sees me putting so much effort for her. My father has been my guiding pillar for me and has been standing by me at all times. We together have been doing the best we can and I just hope everything gets fine soon.
I can proudly say: I have the best family and I love them very much.
