Good Morning. Let me first say I woke up to the smell of fresh cooked eggs. Oh, I how miss the days of waking up to my Daddy's cooking. I would give almost anything to go back in time (taking Michael of course) and enjoy every minute with my Mommy and Daddy instead of running the roads as an avid teenager. I am 22, and I abruptly realized that last night while sitting at the dinner table. My Dad's wife, Mrs. Sarah is the proud parent of a 16 year old daughter, Miss Maise Danielle Martin, who is beginning to show the deleterious ways of a teen. Last night when I arrived to my dad's miss maise was in a fit because she wanted to go out, of course it was a Friday night, the night air had rise while the sunny sun lowed leaving nothing but, driving in the dark, behind the wheel of the car on maise's mind. Who would of though I was ever that way, not that there is anything wrong with it, I guess every teenager must go through that stage of thinking that the parents are the worst thing that ever happened, but it was a rude awakening to the fact that I am 22 years old. You know that ole saying,, you'll see one day, when you have a kid of your own. What was I thinking, lol, I am terrified of that day, I already see. So many times I feel ashamed for the choices I made, the mistakes I indulged in, the sins I have committed, but I have to remind myself that, all of the wrongs is what made me right today. Needless to say, i dread the day that my 16 year old child looks at me with the disgust in the eyes, that I looked at my parents with. Mom and Dad, I am truly sorry for every heartache I have ever caused you, I hope you know that if i could go back and change the world, I would spend every minute of my time with you. I love yall both with every part of me. Last night was a great night, and some much needed time spent with my Daddy. Now, what most of you don't know, is I see my daddy every single day for 8 hours straight, we work together, and I should appreciate that more than I do. You get caught up in your job and focused on what you should be doing, what I am getting paid to do, and I sometimes don't show the affection to my father that I should. This is another challenge I am introducing to myself. It is going to be my goal to every day of the week, stop in all of the hustle and bustle, take a glance at that sweet man, and let him know just how much I love him. You might say it's easy, no big deal, but when you work with your parent it make's your relationship harder, because you begin to look at them as another employee, and not as the parent they really are. So from this day forward, I promise to myself, to respect, honor, and love the father that God has blessed me with. Not every girl or boy is as lucky as me, many children are left in this world without the love of a parent, and I have 2, 2 parents I tell you, that love and adore me,, So it's time to show them the respect they both deserve. It's long overdue that I let my parents know THEY ARE LOVED. With that said, I am going to get off here, and go spend some more time with my daddy, while I have that opportunity.
I'm out, have a great weekend guys!!
Caring and Compassionate,
Reminder of the day,, APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE, BECAUSE BELIEVE IT OR NOT, YOU WILL MISS IT WHEN IT'S GONE,, Right Jen ;)
Oldies, but they are always the best right?
I miss those days!!
