My one wish that came true and gave me immense joy...

And then them coming true :)
Feels like heaven, doesn't it?

So here's my one wish (out of many many) which came true and the joy it gave me then was uncomparable. The joy I get now just thinking it happened is enough to make me smile while I write this.. So here's raising the red curtains :)
I have always been real close to my parents.My sibling and I are left free to voice our opinions, we are encouraged to share anything and everything we want to, we are allowed to cry in front of them when we are weak... It's a beautiful relationship.. It was Dad's 49th birthday. Dad had been forcing me to come home a day before. I was too tired, but then I relented. My sibling couldnt make it amd promised to be home on the birthday. So, when we started our usual celebrations at 12:00 night, digging-into-the-mushy-gooey-cake-and-then-opening-the-gift-and-reading-the-card-ceremony, I took a moment, dashed towards Dad and hugged him. I told Dad I love him. (This was my wish people!!)

Now this may not seem an out of world thing, but I had never before told him that I loved him. I put it down in the cards, had it in my mind but never did I muster my strength to actually tell Dad that I loved him. So, ever since I must have grown up this was my first hug and first "I love you" to the most important man in my life :) :) If you are reading this Dad, you must have already sensed my apprehension and my wait for mum to go to the kitchen so that I could hug you...

But that was one wish I wished for and when it came true it gave me immense joy :)

I lost my Dad 12 days after this birthday and its terrible..

But thinking back, I am so happy I hugged him and told him that I loved him...

So all you people, if you love some one, no matter who they are, tell them you love them, dont just wish and never try to make it true... coz life is short and you don't really know what lies ahead..

  1. Good that your wish came true. Most of my wishes never come true. Of course, you might have got a glimpse of the kind of wishes I have :P
