Main reason for the delay in posting is that my son has not been well. He has an illness that is taking him weeks to recover. I am juggling work with caring for him and I have to admit that I will appreciate the health of my children and I, even more from now on. You do not really understand how important health is until there is something wrong with it. So look after yourself, eat healthy (as much as possible) and exercise regularly. It is amazing how your health underpins every part of your life and those around you.
Last week I wrote on my Facebook page about a couple I knew who were not being treated very well by their adult children. If you already read this my apologies, but I feel I need to rewrite it in this blog on my website.
Be mindful of how you treat your parents.
Last week I caught up with some friends I had not seen in a while. They are kind and generous people. The hubby grew up in country Victoria Australia. He said they were poor but he enjoyed his childhood. There was plenty of love.
Now they are in their sixties and they are comfortable.
However they are heart broken by the way two of their children treat them. The children are not thoughtful of their parents and are rude and cruel. Yes cruel. The kids are financially successful but morally they lack empathy and manners.
I guess I was upset by the way these friends were being treated. They deserved kindness in their twilight years after the great way they raised their children.
Give a little thought to the people who raised you. Of course if your parents were abusive or toxic you would reduce or cut ties. However if they showed you love and support, treat them well, they deserve it.
Remember we all get old and karma is funny ...how do you want to be treated when you get older...
Take care of yourself everyone and be grateful for the blessings in your life.
