I know one of my friend who looks after her old mother who has Alzheimer’s. It is very hard for her, but she tries her best. Some people tell to put mother in a nursing home…but for her if she cannot do her best, she won’t feel good about herself. My friend may do it if she cannot handle in any way. But now, she has the resources to do it. She is telling, it is time to pay back for what her mother did. When she had to get up at night, she remembers how her mother had to do that for her!
When I look back in my life, I feel like kids always take it granted that parents do lot of stuff for them. When I became a mother I realized how much I have to thank my mother. When I had my baby with me, it was like I will do anything in this world to protect her. I remembered the incidents my mother was on my side to support, protect and encourage. Then I realized how fortunate I am to have her…I understood the value of having her.
Sometimes we don’t realize how fortunate we are to have mothers. Like everything, we don’t realize the value of something when we have it. I know a woman who said- she is grateful that sometimes her son visits. Sons and daughters, think about your kids…when they grow up, how you want them to be? Be like that to your parents! If you get a chance to pay back, don’t hesitate-go with your heart!
