Is input equals output?

“Grannyyyy,” shouted Peter, a 7-years-old kid, as soon as he saw his grandmother on weekly visit to old age home where his grandma was staying from last 5 years.

Her smile blossomed like feathers of bird ready to embrace her child.

She was spending other six meaningless days in a hope of these beautiful moments.

Why didn’t Peter’s father think of her caring & loving nature or finding an intermediate solution before admitting her, when his wife had difference of opinions with her??

The crazy fact is why didn’t Peter’s mother think, what if Peter does the same with her??

  1. children learn well from examples demonstrated…hopefully your elderly character will find happiness and peace in her old age. wonderful story.

  2. How sad to think of Granny waiting all week for the family visit. I really like your last line and the idea that perhaps Peter will learn from them how to treat older people.


  3. Great message in a short tale . Awesome work 🙂 The way you have described the relationship between grandma and the child …I liked that a lot . It made me miss my granny who is long gone …

  4. Awesome writing – Granny is right – Peter’s father is a selfish son and parked his mother in a home which he evidently doesn’t visit very often. However, the grand mother is a bundle of comfort for Peter and he knows to question why she is at the ‘home’. Good story! Nan 🙂

    1. Thank You for appreciating the story.. 🙂 And yes, Peter will definitely help his parents to realize their folly!! Thanks again for stopping by & dropping a comment. Keep Visiting!! 🙂 🙂
      P.S. : I really liked your blog name & tagline. It’s simple, yet different.

  5. It’s sometimes necessary to have the elderly in nursing homes, as in the case of Alzheimer’s, when proper care cannot be given at home. Family members should go and visit them even then. However, the elderly should never be sent there just to be rid of them. Sometimes they’re “warehoused” and families just forget about them. That’s the worst. Good story and well written.

    1. Yes, that’s very important point!! If we think from this point of view, it seems relevant to send them to nursing homes, so that better care can be taken. Thanks for adding a different view to the conversation.. Keep Visiting!! 🙂 🙂
