Papa Mummy 25 years Together.....

together in love since 22nd Feb 1987..

God gave me a blessing,
– He gave me the Best parents….!!!

Papa, There were times when you held my hand,
and that  gave me strength to stand up in life…

Mummy, when I was sick…. I would cry and be up all night,
and then you would cuddle me and spend sleepless nights…

In my life….I have been wrong …. I have been lost,
But you stood by me and showed me the right path…

So I thank you Mummy, and I thank you Papa,
For giving me this beautiful life.
I love you both so much,
And I hope for so many years for you two together.;

Oceans so deep or mountains so high, cannot express my love for you….
Mom, Dad What a blessing the both of you have been to me !!!!

your loving Son,

Jino.

I have so much to be thankful for, but I would not have any of those blessings if it were not for the blessing of my Mom and Dad loving each other for 25 years.

I miss the warmth of your gentle hug and the love I felt when my arms were wrapped around you. I miss seeing your beautiful smile and the sound of your voice saying my name. I miss our family, without you in it. There is emptiness there, where you once were. I miss you  in moments of sucess, I miss you saying…”this is my grandson” to everyone around and the look of pride you held with each word spoken everytime I did something good..

I miss our evening prayers, but I know you are with our Lord praying for all. Your prayers and sacrifice gave us everything that we have. To pray, To help, To sympathize, To love, To Forgive, To care ….. you taught us all!

And now when I close my eyes and feel the warmth of your gentle hug once more and envision wrapping my arms around you. I see your smile as you say my name. I realize that if I could just go back into my precious memories of you I would find your treasured words and love in a special place deep in my heart.

I miss you but I have to go on with my life till my day comes. What a wonderful day it will be when we finally are reunited at heavens door. Until then my memories of you I will keep near to my heart and I will pass them on to those who are so dear.

Feast of St. George, Mannar , Year 2006

At times in Life you realize what you missed only when you actually get it back. After a few months gap again I’m realizing what I have been missing these days. Life always seemed to be pleasant and happy for me by God’s Grace. But there are some things in life which I was very much involved with and to which my heart yells to return to.

Nothing ever brought me joy as much as the moments I spend with my parents at home. Apart from being at home, I just love being at my place, with my people.

The friends from my school, the friends at Sunday school, Guys who worked with me together for many a things in our parish…. Meeting all of them and once again spending ‘quality’ time with them is so nostalgic.

We are celebrating Mother Mary’s Feast at our Parish Church now. This takes me back to my School Days. It was at such occasions and around such people that we guys grew to take up small but responsibilities. Taking in charge of the pavement decoration, putting up a refreshment stall, helping out in the big procession etc. was too BIG for our age then. After going to Bangalore I have been missing all this petit – stuff, though bigger things came my way there.

Yesterday was the first day of festival. Attending the Rosary procession with candles, hundreds of men came seeking the blessings of Mother Mary. Me too relishing the old times with KCYM Pals raised on shoulders the ‘statue of Mother Mary’ …. Enchanting pyrotechnics followed the procession… Like always stood with the friends with lots of chit-chats, unlimited SODA from KCYM stalls and enjoyed a lot. Talks and discussions till wee hours is the only thing I missed yesterday. I had to return home early, definitely because I knew my parents would have been waiting! I could not help helping Dad for setting up the electric decorations at my house too. Because the fact is that I always loved and still love to work with him. (Excuse my laziness at times)

Even at Johns we all work for many a things… wee hours…. Ideas… discussions… execution… everything happens…! But there is always a difference….! Probably I belong to this place more than anywhere else! I just, just love being at HOME!!!

We never know
Or fully realize
How sweet and kind our parents are,
How gentle and how wise

We simply take for granted,
From day to passing day,
Each sacrifice they make for us
In their own loving way.

But then we grow and finally learn,
The way that children do,
How much their love has really meant,
How thoughtful they’ve been, too –

And so this comes with all the thanks
You both deserve and more.
For there aren’t two dearer parents
Than the one this blog is for,

Happy 24th Anniversary Mom and Dad!

22nd February 2010….

with lots of love,

Jino.

Happy B’day Papa!

Dad, you were never too busy

to make that extra trip to practice, to school..

to do whatever it took to give me everything

I would need to grow up

and get a good start in life…..

When I was younger,

I didn’t know how hard it must have been

for you to devote all that time to me,

but now that I’m older, I do…

And I appreciate it all the more.

Love You Dad!

Kayyalackal, Mannar: I reached here today morning. The bus was little late. But managed to reach before 9:30 AM, so could meet Papa and Mummy. This is the First time I’m coming home after our Ammachi (my Grandmother) left us all, to rest in the peace of our Good Lord.

Whenever I think of my house Ammachi’s face used to come to my mind. There were weeks/days when my parents (transfers, trainings etc) were not here… but except a few weeks of hospitalization Ammachi was allways here.
For the past 18 years she was ‘the presence’ which made our home complete.
It has been one month since she left us….
And now…The room is empty… The voice we loved is still… I miss something here… It might sound weird for some of you… But at my home .. I feel quite strange today !!
No, No one can fill that gap that she has left in our hearts… Her prayers were our strength. I can still feel the warmth of her love for us…. I miss you a lot dear Ammachi !!
