She was an immaculate Mother. She took us to Sunday School and church. She raised me to believe in my dreams, but to follow God's will. She took care of me when I couldn't take care of me and I did the same for her in return. Taking care of dying parent or grandparent (who is very much like a parent) is never easy. But, being a 18 year old "kid" for lack of better word is earth shattering.
But, I learned so much from her in only 18 years. And I'm still learning from her even though she is not physical here with me on this Earth.
Somethings, I've learned from her are:
- Glass breaks, but she'll forgive me because she loves me more than her china.
- Changing the toilet paper roll will not kill you, it only takes a second.
- Washing dishes is not hazardous to your health.
- The dog can't feed himself.
- You don't have to like me, just remember I love you.
- Whenever you feel the walls closing in on you, remember God is still there with you.
- Always remember to pray, because prayer changes everything.
- Going to church makes a difference in your life, even if you can't see it.
- Take care of your family, they are the only one your going to get.
- Don't leave the rabbit on the couch, he won't be there when you get back.
- Your not invincible, you can't fly...So, don't try, you will hurt yourself.
- Coffee tables are not trampolines.
Well, there you have some of the wisdom of my youth. I'm sure I'll think of some later, but that's all I have for now.
Happy Birthday Mom!
