Once, my sister gifted me a watch with no hands. It had a golden face. I asked her why it doesn’t have any hands. She said it’s to remind me that whatever time it is, ‘time’ itself is the most precious thing in the world. She also suggested that I keep a picture of her in the watch, incase I didn’t like the watch-face.
There are times when we take our families for granted. We get busy. We forget their birthdays. We stop talking to them. We need to remember that they are the only human beings that truly care for us and will love us unconditionally.
So I hugged her and laughed hysterically at her stupid idea. What a waste of time.
