I hope everyone's Easter Sunday was great, I know mines was. I woke up this morning thinking about yesterday, and how I spent all day talking to my mother and father. I almost missed this opportunity due to the fact I didn't feel like making the 2 hour drive. I haven't been home this year, and I use to go at least once a month, so I just felt like I should take the ride no matter what. My mom wanted me to come home Saturday morning, and when I told her that I didn't feel like it she said.... "maybe you can rest and come this evening". I was so tired and did not make the ride Saturday, but instead I went to bed early.
I woke up early Sunday morning, and my mind just starting running. It was Easter Sunday, my fiance was in Alabama visiting her mom, and I was laying in the bed alone. God started speaking to me, and I felt it in my heart to get up and take that ride. I am the second to the youngest of 4 boys, and I seem to be the most sensible out of the bunch, so my parents will sit and talk to me for hours. The older I get, the older my parents get, and I am getting old lol. One of my dear friends has a father fighting the last stages of cancer, and she is spending every moment that she can with him. One of my boys lost his mother years back, and it hurts him that he cannot talk to her.
I said all of this to say... spend as much time with your parents as you can! I can't imagine what my life would be like without the loooong talks with my mom, or listening to the complaints that my Dad has about my mom lol. We only get one set of biological parents, and if you don't know who yours are, spend as much time as possible with the people who raised you. Our parents fed, housed, and clothed us, the very least we could do is go spend time with them. Parents love to see there children when they are full grown and moving on up in life. They like to see the end product, and especially when you are progressing in life.
We make time for our significant others, our friends, and all types of entertainment, make time for your parents. We never know when God will take them from us, and once they are gone... They are gone. Let's strive to make just as many memories in our adulthood, that we made as children with our parents. No matter what your relationship is or was with them, spend that quality time, and tell them that you love them. Peace and Blessings!
