Imagine yourself captivated in a fairy tale where no evil lurked, and where only goodness existed, a place where reassurance and love bounded you. That was me, in paradise, a bit over 2 years ago. It was a decision when my family and I had planned we go to India for a change.
I could hardly wait, yet at the same time I was apprehensive. It had been years since I had visited my grandparents. Besides, I was meeting them after a long time.
Would they be surprised by my change? Would they still remember those young, cherished years of my childhood, growing up in India? Pondering in loads of thoughts, I decided to give it a try. My experience in India however, went far better than I had expected. I had seen astounding sights such as the Taj Mahal, catched a glimpse of the Himalayas, and walked along the beaches where I was mesmerized by the countless waves.
Despite the beautiful encounters with such countless sights, I felt something was missing, though I could not determine what. That’s when my parents took me to my grandparents’ house. At first when we think of the term of grandparents, we often associate them with expressions such as old, and boastful.
Yet the fact lies within, grandparents have loads of affection that many of us young adults fail to recognize. My grandparents had filled the missing gap with their endless love, and proved that they adored me just as they did back then. No matter how far away you live from the ones you love, the bond of love can never deteriorate.
Apart from the destinations I had traveled to, being with my family, in particular my grandparents has made me feel reassured and thankful. Unlike previous vacations I have had in my lifetime, this has been the most memorable because I have been aware by the term, family. The best place on earth to be with is your family, a place where consolation, love, and peace unite.
