A little something…
March 18, 2012
This post is dedicated to my mum. I thought since today is mothers day, it would be an appropriate gesture.
Sometimes in life you aspire to be like someone. Or try to achieve things that celebrities or well known personalities accomplish. But sometimes you need to look closer to home when aspiring to be someone.
My parents always ensured that my brother and I had what we needed and what we wanted, within reason, of course. But what I appreciate most, was what they taught me.
At the time you think you are being ‘lectured’ with the, ‘stop wasting money’ this and ‘do as I say not as I do’ that. But these ‘mundane’ sayings and prophesies that your parents spouted to your younger self on a daily basis, become the basis of your future mentality, and what you, sooner or later will spout to your children, in hope that they too, heed your word and become what they aspire to be.
If I am to become half the mother, that mine has been to me, I will be very, very happy.
To all those who have the pleasures of their mothers comfort and company, treat this as a gift. For all those that are no longer with us, cherish their memory and never forget what they taught you. To be who you are.
