A story of love and caring for our parents who are lucky to live long enough for us to enjoy them..

My mom died when I was only nine.. I went through life missing her.. wishing for one more day.. one more time.. just to have her with me..

My dad.. he died a few years later at the age of fifty-three.. Just as we were becoming adults and was able to give back and enjoy him as adults…

Some are so fortunate to have their parents living at a really old age.. becoming less independent..

… and being treated indifferent.. with no compassion and no patience..,

They become burdens.. and being treated with no respect and as kids.. forgetting that they are still mom and dad..

it’s so sad 😞 to witness the treatment given sometimes..

and here am I.. didn’t get the chance to fully enjoy my parents.. wishing everyday that life had been kinder and allow them to live a little longer..

So if you are one of the fortunate ones.. to still have your parents around..

Be kind.. be gentle.. be patient.. be compassionate..

and treat them just like you would want to be treated by your children if you are lucky enough to live that long ..

Enjoy this little video.. and think about sowing what you want to reap..

That old man has no much to teach..

just like that little four year old boy…

we can learn so much from his life experience… if we only stop to talk to them.. and include them in our daily lives..

  1. I lost my dad when I was 18. I was still immersed in teen rebellion when it happened, so I never really had a chance to speak to him as a man. I suppose that we all live with regret, but it doesn’t make it any easier.

    1. True..

      It just hurts to see people mistreating parents.. when we who have lost ours wish we had them around that long…

      I guess it’s a case of.. have it.. don’t know what they have and how lucky they are…

      And.. want it… can’t have it..

      “Havy havy… nuh want it..

      Wanty wanty.. can’t have it..”

  2. This made me cry…
    Thank you for the reminder…I lost my Dad this year at 88, and my 89 year old Mom lives with me. Sometimes my patience is lacking, I can not lie. But your words remind me how lucky I am and that I have a responsibility to be kind no matter what is going on!
    Blessings to you!

    1. Am so glad that I was able to remind to be kind and patient..

      We are all humans and we do get annoyed and impatient when things changes.. from the normal..

      We just have to keep in mind…

      We one day.. if fortunate enough…
      will be in that same position..
      and would we want to be treated like that….????

      Thanks for reading 📖 and for visiting…
      Nuff blessings to you too
