The Mirror of Erised

Albus Dumbledore: “Let me explain. The happiest man on earth would be able to use the Mirror of Erised like a normal mirror, that is, he would look into it and see himself exactly as he is. Does that help?”Harry Potter: “It shows us what we want… whatever we want…”Albus Dumbledore: “Yes and no. It shows us nothing more or less than the deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.The Mirror of Erised is a mirror, which, according to Albus Dumbledore, shows the “deepest and most desperate desire of one’s heart.” The name “Erised” is “desire” spelled backwards, as if reflected in a mirror. The Mirror shows the greatest desire of the one looking into it upon its surface, often with them having achieved some goal or ambition. However, since each person is unique, only they can see it from their point of view. According to Dumbledore, the Mirror shows neither truth nor knowledge, and some have in fact gone mad from staring at it.

           All, this am sure any potterhead would be aware of, but have you ever wondered?
what would you see?If u were actually in vicinity of the mirror of the erised, what would you see…?
well, this is something I’ve been “pondering” for  a while now…
so I ask you this?What would YOU see…? See yourself with a rad hairdo?Maybe that SHINY new smart phone you’ve always wanted?! or for those over ambitious folks, a nobel prize? discovering the cure to cancer?Maybe a date with that hot celebrity? maybe become rich?roll in all that dough?
I’ve got to admit I’ve had times when I thought each and every one of those situations..(and quite a few other more embarrassing situations,which I will not reveal here 😛 ) but I kept oscillating, NEVER one answer, just one final answer… But the mirror only shows your DEEPEST desire! All this admittedly was shallow, well aren’t we all, sometimes?
I did get my answer though, yesterday.well a certain person helped me remember it.Losing family,something that not all people go through but those who do are one of the strongest at heart… this is one of those very RARE things that scar you for life!knowing that you do not have that person(s) who u could call family!
FAMILY, something that’s been very fabric of our society.But it’s something more, family,it’s something man, EVERY man shares a special bond with, “You do for family!”, people who are your flesh and blood, who share a house with you, who share meals with you, who share their grief with you, they share their LIFE with you and they share your’s too… And knowing you’ve lost one.. that’s a scar that’ll stay forever…
so I know you’ve guessed what I’d see when  get to look at the Mirror.. I’d see Family, MY family…. and when it comes down to it, who else do u really need…?
