They say life is all about the company one keeps. While some bonds are enforced, others naturally evolve over time. With some you share all your joys and sorrows whilst others barely know you. It’s this extreme contrast that defines the longevity of any relationship.
But above all them, exists a bond so pure and full of unconditional love. A true companion for life – Parent and child.
Until you become a parent you don’t realize the huge responsibility that falls on your shoulders to raise another human being. And until a child grows up, doesn’t realize that no matter how old you get you can always count on your parents. A child blossoms under the parents’ guidance and parents pride in their child’s success. Life comes a full circle in the end.
And as much as I love my family and shine in their company, I also love being in the company of the ocean waves and the setting sun. Something so serene about it that it calms me down instantly. If this isn’t companionable then what is?
** For the Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable.
Love is the theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge and here’s my interpretation:
There’s nothing more pure, soothing, unconditional, delightful, beautiful, magical, and surreal than a mother’s love. And you realize it more only when you become one. It’s a bond for lifetime and not a day, week, month or year.
“A mother’s love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking.” – Helen Rice
Delicate is the theme for this week’s Photo Challenge and this is my interpretation.
I consider the parent child relationship to be the most delicate. As a parent, you can nurture them with love and affection and advise them to choose the right path or misguide them into oblivion. You can create the strongest bond or live like strangers under the same roof.
The choice is solely ours!
“Romance fails us and so do friendships, but the relationship of parent and child, less noisy than all the others, remains indelible and indestructible, the strongest relationship on earth.” – Theodore Reik
