A motivational speaker cracked a little joke the best years he'd ever had were spent with another mans wife! The audience aghast with much disgust, He then softly said She was my Mother
How true it is how the years spent being raised are what mould us and steer us on our paths and although mostly different challenges than our parents had experienced, but it's that foundation that leads us to make proud moral decisions!
If you still have the awesome privilege of having your parents thank them sometime!
Once they leave us on this great rock we call home it will be memories to be cherished and many a moment wished you told them even more how you love them, no Matter how often said!
I, like the artist David Gates lost my Dad and can relate to his lyrics In The song "everything I own"~ "You sheltered me from harm Kept me warm, kept me warm You gave my life to me Set me free, set me free The finest years I ever knew Were all the years I had with you
And I would give anything I own Give up my life, my heart, my home I would give everything I own Just to have you back again
You taught me how to love What it's of, what it's of You never said too much But still you showed the way And I knew from watching you Nobody else could ever know The part of me that can't let go
And I would give anything I own Give up my life, my heart, my home I would give everything I own Just to have you back again"
If you have them still, take heed to our loss we can never get that time again! But you have it now! so make it count! If you are upset with your folks Remember they too are human They too make mistakes! Those are our learning blocks! Not stumbling blocks! I make mistakes for my children to learn from, so they don't have to make the same mistakes as I !
