I love Fridays. I have been loving them even more since I started this weekly post. It actually brings a smile to my face. Instead of sitting in negativity I am actually looking for things to be grateful for. It really has made me more positive. I can be really angry at something but then I will get myself together and say to myself “What can I be grateful for?” . Thinking this way has really made me be more positive.
Today I am grateful for my parents. Those two people are such a blessing. They are always there for me when I need them. As you know Wednesday was Valentine’s Day and I called to speak to my mom. I was surprised to find my dad at home. They just make me smile. My mom was so happy to have my dad at home. They are an example of where I want to be in my marriage. My mom always reminds me that it takes work to get where they are. Even now they are working on their relationship. My dad does the same. I appreciate being able to call them up whenever and being able to talk to them. They will just sit there and listen to me. Sometimes I send them the silliest videos and they will watch it. I love bringing a smile to their faces. I know so many friends and family who will give anything to be able to have that one last conversation with their mom and dad. So I am enjoying my parents while they are here.
Parenting doesn’t end when your babies leave the nest. It just changes a bit. My parents have so taught me this. I hope I can be as great a mom to my kids after my kids leave. My parents are truly amazing. I love how they are still there for me and my siblings. What are you grateful for this Friday?
