Sundays with Daddy-1

I will always remember those Sunday mornings when dad and I used to go for long walks , talking about everything from his teenage to mine , from talks about our family business to my studies , from the kinda songs he used to listen , to the kinds i do , in fact contrasting his life to mine , And every Sunday we set out , I used to learn more about my dad , and more about life too , it's meanness to the unexpected surprises . It was like a preparation to face this evil world , to be able to handle problems and stand up when i land square on my face , and to celebrate and be content with everything that God has showered me with .




One such Sunday he told me about this 2+2=4 rule .
It is quite simple , when we were young and tender in primary / junior classes , teachers used to teach us 2+2=4 and if we went wrong , she would first try to make us understand , if we still could not learn then she would give it another try , if we still didn't ,she would cane us real hard , if we still did not learn she would even punish us with 25 sit-ups or talk to our parents or whatever but she would stop only when we learnt that 2+2=4.
Just like that in our lives each time we face a problem , not only do we have to overcome the problem but learn from those mistakes , if we don't , life will come up with a little more harsh way of teaching us the same rule / quality / whatever that we lack ... but just like the teacher it would never give up on us until and unless we learn from our mistake !

Simple right ? So next time you have some valleys in your life make sure to be strong enough to overcome it and yeah , learn from it too ! :) !

  2. Its really a nice thing when we get to compare with what we have and what our parents had in their times! We are so blessed to be born in the century where everything reaches at our doorsteps within a second or two! Cute blog :)

  7. Just found your post thanks to Best Posts of the Week and I think you're a gifted writer. Thank you for sharing this tender moment with your dad. I lost mine recently and your post brought back fun memories. I hope you'll visit me sometime at Chubby Chatterbox where I focus on art, humor and nostalgia. I think we might have much in common. If you do come for a visit, I hope you'll take a moment to press the Join button, and I'll return the compliment. Really, your blog is just too good to have so few followers. Take care, and I hope to hear from you sometime.
