On the road, I grumbled under my breath about the rising fuel prices and hot afternoon sun. I could be spending my time doing proper work instead of driving around like a madman! Then I recalled something my dad said when we moved back to live with them.
He said that he'll do his best to help me bring up my kids. Once we have brought the kids into this world, it is our responsibility to bring them up properly, giving them the best we can afford. I felt tremendously touched at his words. In one sentence, he spoke for himself, for me and for all the parents in this world.
When I recall those words, the memory of how hard I had fought for the custody of the kids came flooding back. At that time, I would even drive all the way to the moon and back if I had to just to have the kids by my side. What's the fuss about driving those few extra miles today? Sometimes it is too easy to take things for granted. That's why one should reflect every now and then.
Well, here is a reflection in the mirror this morning. My hair is still super flat but I'm not complaining. I really should be thankful I still have a head full of hair.
