DP Daily Prompt: Blogger With A Cause Post by Ranu

I think I have taken care of my responsibilities. The kids are now adults. They are capable of looking after themselves,I hope they are. From the time they were infants,up to now I did everything for them. I fed them,clothed them,taught them anything they wanted I gave them.I have come to a point where I sense they are not as generous with their time as I was. This probably is my fate.

I think I’d want to do something for someone other than my family. I carried a lot of burden to raise them.When I look back I feel I’ve done more than the two younger ones deserve. It’s my time to turn to something else which would make me feel better.

I am so disappointed I don’t feel like volunteering for anything. I fear I may face another set of ungrateful people,I’d have difficulty coping if this happens.

Anyway I am seriously thinking of setting up a scholarship for kids in my area.How it will turn out I have no idea,I presume better than the two I’ve raised.This is all I think for now.It may change when I think some more.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you very much for this.

    It is very true that we enounter ungratefulness in life, sometimes from family, sometimes from acquaintances, sometimes from co-workers.

    I sense that you are one who serves others, not in a servile sense, but in the sense that you’re fulfilling a great purpose of caring for other humans. If you set up the scholarship program, I’m sure it will be a success, just as was your upbringing of your children (even if they happen to not acknowledge your service).

    All good wishes,
