Appreciating Child Hood and Beyond

I say "and Beyond" simply because to this day I do still appreciate a lot of things that are done for me by my parents. So let me tell you the reason for tonight's blog.
Over the past few ( kind of over whelming) days I have really noticed all the things my Mom and Dad (mainly talking about Mom) did for me while growing up. Like making sure my clothes were clean or cooking/fixing my food. (not to mention all the other things that it takes to run a family) While it may be a simple or easy thing to do it is not always the most fun thing to do, It is a lot of work and takes time. I could go over the things that I have done this past week but it would just tire you reading it, plus most of you I am sure have done the same things and more.

But I will tell you the first thing that really made me appreciate Mom was when I fixed Breakfast Sunday Morning. It was not hard fixing it. It was not hard cleaning up but it wasn't fun either. The kicker was afterwards.... The Smell of cooked eggs and crescent rolls... UGH.. Right Away I thought of how much I appreciate when she cooks!
I have to admit I am still pretty spoiled by my parents, They always have enough food so if we want to come over and eat. Not to mention when Mom cooks it is Amazing! And if I need help with something Mom always lends a helping hand.

So when I am at home cleaning and taking care of my kids I always think of how this was once (and sometimes still is) done for me!!

So Thank You MOM and DAD!!!

  1. Im with you!! Ive learned after haveing my kids how much my mom did for me. A mother's job is never done. It defintly takes alot of time and energy to do it all. Its the hardest job but defintly the most rewarding. We are blessed to have such great parents.


  2. All true. Some of the simplest things are the least fun to do. I've often heard "there's nothin' to it," said about my every day tasks. But, oh, the reward! I count my blessings daily! I think of the consistency in our daily routine as children and I am thankful that I always knew what to expect from Mama. The meals were decent and on time. So were bath time, bed time, etc. Thanks for the reminder.
