The Power Of Three by GMG Sisters Life is just fine... Sometimes it's full of bliss... Other times it can be filled with darkness... But whatever life may bring.... We will always have one another through thick and thin!
Do you realize how much sacrifices your parents have done for you? We are greatly pampered by the unconditional love of our parents, but oftentimes we take them for granted. We’ve caused them problems and heartaches but their love for us is never broken nor shaken.
When we were younger, our parents worry about the bills and we let them do most of the errands around the house while we are busy playing and having fun, not so enthusiastic about helping them out. They toil without complaining to continuously bring food to the table and to make sure that the family is intact. Eventually, the table will turn. When we start our own family and have our own house and bills to pay, maturity kicks in! We learn to care less about ourselves and more about our loved ones. We try our best to always make them happy and we work really hard to provide the best care we can give them. The important things come first and priorities are set in stone. We become more like our parents! I remember what our Mom tells us every time we make mistakes that upset or annoy her. She’ll say, “when you have your own family someday, you’ll understand what I’m saying!” And yes, she was not mistaken! Now that I am married, it’s like a déjà vu. What my parents have experienced in the past are happening again… but they’re happening to me! It’s indeed a vicious pattern and cycle of life! I love my parents a lot, and I have come to appreciate them even more… now that I am married and now that I have a family to take care of!What about you, how much do you value your parents? -Mabel-
I remember all the things my mother did for me also. I did return the favor by making her last days here as comfortable as i possible could. I am very thankful for all she did and taught me i will never forget it.
Hi Mabel, I value my parents a lot. I know that they worked hard and sacrificed a lot to give my siblings and I a comfortable life and a good education. Now that they are in their senior years, it's my time to pay them back. I always wish that they live closer but I live in the East coast and they cannot stand the cold weather.
Personally, I was abandoned by my mom once, but it was all my fault though..I got pregnant and i have to leave for awhile. I didn't feel the love (from mom) since then. But after 6years, she have forgiven me..So happy na ulit ako.
Parents come within the top list of people most unappreciated in our lives. This is especially true with the later generations. But only God knows where we would be if not for the love of the parents which saw us through.
Very true, I only learned the real difficulties of parenting after I got married. Only then I knew how much my mom has sacrificed for me and I also learned that I will never be able to pay her back for what she'd done for me.
I wish my kids will realize this one day lol. but as for my own parents? My dad is my problem! Always been and still is... he stopped working when i as in 3rd grade coz he said he got tired taking care of us!So mom worked until she died after that? I started working at the age of 14 just to take care of him,, even until now and I am almost 30!you are lucky u got good parents!
Amen to that! We're a closely-knitted family and you wouldn't imagine how hard it was when I had to leave my family to live thousand miles away with my husband. I greatly treasure the values that my parents instill in me and my siblings and I wish I could do the same with my own son. It is true that you will appreciate your parents even more when you become a parent yourself. Nice post.
Now I have a son and I do all the things (or try to) what my lola did to me while growing up. I realize it's hard and I value her more because of this. If only I helped her more often when I was a little kid... sigh.
