'When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching -- they are your family. - Jim Butcher
Now I don't know who this guy Jim butcher is but no one ever said a truer word.
So i'm going to write down some of the things that make me explode with love for my family.
*While out on a drive with the parents*
Mom: Kuch aur to nahi lena?
Me: Nahi ma.
Mom: Kuch nai chaiye?
Me: Nai nai.
Mom: Kuch le lo.
Me: Hahha nai maaa.
Mom: Please kuch le lo.
Mom: Kuch to le lo.
Mom: Le ke phenk do.
-I love how s2 kept me company on skype through all my profs, listening to me cry and laugh in tears all day and all night, while s1 kept reminding me that the world wasn't actually going to end if i did badly on my exam.
-I love how dad actually listened to me whine about level 97 on Candy crush and even tried to help fix the problem.
-I love how everytime i feel crushed by the world, I call s2 and s1 and they make me feel like I'm not alone.
-I love how my cousin H fed me soup after i had my surgery and my sisters broke the french fries into tiny little pieces so that i'd be able to swallow them.
-I love how it was 23rd March and s2 came into my room early in the morning just to remind me that they were going to do the cannon things outside so i shouldn't be scared like OMG WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING OUTSIDE?!
-I love how i call s1 in times of weakness and she says:
'You have to keep reminding yourself of who you are. People will always try to bring you down. But wohi baat hoti hai na, nothing can shoot me down waali. Bas socho ke mujhe koi nai hila sakta. Jo marzi kar lain'.
-I love how I wanted a new phone so bad and my dad got me my s3 and then they all suprised me by hiding it in a shoe box.
*s1 casually*: Mom got you these shoes. I don't know if you will like them but try karlo.
*I open the box, there are actual shoes in there. I take one out and try it*
s1: Doosra bhi try karo na idiot.
*I take the other one out and: OMG.SHIT.OMG.AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa*
Where the shoes went i don't even know.
-I love how every time i get off the bus and meet dad, he kisses me on the cheek or the head.
-I love how Nd kept knocking on the door for ages while i was hiding inside refusing to go out with everybody because i was in a bad mood. He said i could take as much time as i wanted but they wouldn't leave without me.
-I love how when i was around 13, my sisters found my secret diary and read my secret emo stuff. And then wrote a long three page reply explaining how nothing was as dark as i thought it was. I also love laughing my head off when we read it together now.
-Me whining to mom: Maa main ganji ho jaungiii. Bohut hairfall ho raha hai.
Mom: Its seasonal. Theek ho jayega.
Me: Nahi. Main ganji ho jaungi. Pakka.
Dad *thinking im seriously worried* : Nai nai pagal. Nai hoti ganji. Kabhi dehka hai koi larki aisay hi ganji ho jaye? Kuch nahi hoga. Theek ho jayega.
Me: Hahahahah awww.
I love Mom's random calls while i'm at the hostel: Ghar aa jao. Chor do college aur tests aur sab kuch. Bas ghar aa jao kal hi. Mainay keh dia hai.
I love how my parents still make fun of each other and laugh at the little things in life and teach us the same.
I love how being the youngest, I will always be pampered and protected by these few people no matter how harsh the world gets. As s1 says: Baby ho, babie ban ke raho.
Nothing makes me heart happier and warmer than being with the people I love. Just sitting at the dinner table, watching shitty shows on the tv and laughing at each other, drinking chaaye with mom's favorite plain cake. It's where all my strength lies, after God.
