Story: I love you | Vismaya Gireesan Nair, Australia

On the night that baby girl was born, her parents had great hope in her as she was their first child who made them a father and a mother. The parents were filled with great joy since their parenthood started that night and they wanted to do everything that they could to make their child happy and safe. The father worked to earn income to sustain his family and the mother stayed at home to take care of the family. The parents trained and taught their child to respect and love others, regardless of their caste and creed. The parents wanted the best for their ‘only’ child.

Years passed and the child grew into a teenager.

One sunny afternoon, while the mother was cleaning the house, she spotted a diary in her daughter’s bed. An urge to open and read the diary compelled her to do like that and very shortly, the mother opened it and all went well except till the point where her eyes spotted a particular sentence on the page. It said, “Calling me cute is nice but calling me yours, is all I want.” Next to that sentence, a name was written – James. The mother became distressed as she knew that there is no one within their family who possesses the name James. She soon called the daughter and asked her, “Dear, Who is James?” The daughter, not realising that her mother was trying to do her responsibility by asking her what is happening, became furious and snatched the diary from her mother and asked her, “Why did you take my diary without asking and why are you getting in to my personal life?”
The daughter without knowing the motives behind her mother’s question, walked towards her bedroom, and upon reaching there, slammed the door. The mother, with tears in her eyes, kept silent and walked away.
Later in the day, the daughter came out of her room crying and ran towards the kitchen. The mother, upon seeing her daughter felt perturbed, asked her, “What happened dear?” The daughter, regretting for what she had done before, ran towards her mother and hugged her. While sobbing, she said, “Mother, I’m really sorry and forgive me for hurting you. I realise now that there are many people in this world who may love us, but the only person that can truly love me is my mother. No matter how old I get, I will always love and respect you, mother. I love you mother.” The mother, not knowing what had happened, said to the daughter, “Dear, I don’t know what made you to regret for your actions. All I care is that you understood your mistakes and came back to me. Even if you hurt me, I won’t hurt you. Even if you hate me, I will love you. You are precious to me, dear daughter. Even if everyone forsakes you, I won’t leave you. I love you daughter.”

The Bible says, “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.” The daughter portrayed in this story, represents the children who hurt their parents. Jesus while living in this world obeyed and never hurt His parents. Likewise, as children of God, we (children) should make sure that we obey, respect and love our parents. The mother portrayed in this story, represents all the mothers. Jesus, leaving His comfortable life in heaven, came down to this world to save human beings. In Hebrews, it is written that, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and if He has said like that, then it is sure that He won’t leave you and forsake you. The moral of this story is that Jesus will always be with you. Also children must obey and respect their parents.
