A Reminder To All Of Us...

The sign of great parenting is not the child's behavior.
The sign of truly great parenting is the parent's behavior...

I shared this on FB the other day.  
It's beautiful.  Like I told my sisters, 
"you all have daughters."  Sometimes life 
gets so busy we "forget" what's important.

  Our mom no matter what her day has thrown 
her way never, but never is not there for us.

I will be the first to admit to being impatient at times. 
 There was always so much going on in our lives the 
last 2 years that I sometimes was short and abrupt.  

Not only to my mom but also to my sisters.
 I have made a promise to myself to be better.

I have a lot of time on my hands right now, and I realize that 
my parents are getting older and I want to enjoy every moment with
 them and to be a better person because that's how they raised us all. 

 To be kind, patient and to have compassion for others. 
 I have to work on my patience.  I can definitely do better.  

Our mom has all the patience in the world, and I am 
sure there are days she would rather have some time 
for herself, but when we need her she is there.  

That's what mothers do for their children.  As we all grow 
older let us not forget that our parents are also getting older, and
 we must all learn to be kinder, gentler and more patient with them.

You can learn so many things from your children.
Like how much patience you have.  Have a great day everyone.

It takes a mother's Patience to bring a child up right, 
and her Courage and her Cheerfulness to make a dark day right...
