This man and woman raised two kids in the rough streets of north philly. they ran /run businesses on the west coast while also putting their two girls through college. never let their kids see them argue ,no domestic violence, loyalty , grandparents that support everything the grands do, hard working man for my mother since the age of 15 ... they are now 65.... they are #myparents and i love and appreciate everything you have done and continue to do for all of us 🥰

Happy birthday to my 1st greatest role! today is the big 5-0!!! you have never looked better. mom, you have shown me independence, to fight and never give up, and to give back to others you love whenever possible. you are in the best point of your life because you fought for a better life. then, you met your g****o 😂 and have been together ever since. i love you both. tbt to my wedding because i have no photos on this phone lol. we sent you flowers and you aren’t even there to receive them. anyways, hope you get to relax for your birthday and do something special later. can’t wait to meet you guys in vegas to celebrate the right way! #myfavoritepeople#latinos #g****o #wedding#big50#pastudent#familyiseverything#myparents#novemberbaby#lovemymom#bestexample#superwoman
Priceless moments... .
when i ask aai if she remembers where this picture was taken.
she smiles and narrates the story i have heard many many times...
the photograph is fading each day and i ask her because i want to hear the story of their love and companionship and their celebration of life, coming alive in this picture again and again...
so one day, when the photo crumbles away, the memory will be etched forever.... i see glimpses of you both, in me, when i smile or laugh or walk.
i see glimpses of you two in abhimanyu.
you remember this patola saree you are wearing, it is now a part of the handmade quilt that you made for me.
i know you are taking those long strides dada and aai has to keep up with you.
is it good or bad that now i can bear to see pictures of you without a pang in my heart and tear in my eye.
maybe i am clinging on to these things, but trust me... it is so hard to let go.
memories... memories... memories... #revdandabeach#konkan#myfather#myhandsomedad#mybeautifulmother#aai#mother#revdandabeach#memories#oldpictures#myparents#love #family#eastmancolor
