The Beginning of the Happy Ending.

In my younger years i always wondered about the future .Being married to a husband with a white collar job who had lost his father in his childhood there was not much of backup or call it inheritance .Life was tough with two kids money was always just enough .I picked up teaching jobs many times but due to my husband’s transfers i could not have a permanent job

Anyhow the services gave us an exposure and a dreamy lifestyle .We would attend parties and also dance events hoisted in the services club .There would be Xmas celebrations for the kids with Santa distributing presents etc. The kids also learnt social etiquettes in true Naval tradition

However it was a challenging life with frequent inter-state transfers ,changing of schools ,houses and infact the whole setup as well as neighbourhood.

During holidays we would visit our native place and were surprised to see all other family members living life of luxury .No idea where and how they managed but we realized that inspite of our class one status we were infact not at all wealthy .

Years passed by ,we kept going ,guiding ,disciplining our children and teaching them the value of money .

Now after retirement it seems God has blessed us a wealth that is rare .Both my children now busy with their jobs but attached to family value system .

Some endings are happier than the beginnings and sometimes prosperity comes to the less wealthy.

  1. A happy family is the greatest wealth. Isn’t it? The kids also grow up in an environment where they see how parents work hard to get them the luxury which I feel is really needed. Kids always learn from their parents. ❤️

  2. “I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
