One of the Ten Commandments : Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother
My parents were remarkable and outstanding parents. I have been very blessed to have the most wonderful and perfect parents in my life. They helped shaped me into the person I am today and so much more. My parents are an inspiration to me everyday in my life to succeed and move forward in life to achieve everything humanly possible while I am on earth. My parents were compassionate and understanding and considerate to my needs. Everyday that I am alive I strive to make my parents proud of me.
When I was about eight years old my Father made a seat for his tractor for me to sit on while he planted corn,etc. My Father always wanted to keep me safe and out of harms way. My Father thought me how to deal with contractors and business men. My Father told me to get several bids on a project so I could get a good deal on a project without being taken advantage of. I followed my Father around as much as I could and I learned how to make a lot of different repairs on all different kinds of items by watching him over the years. My father was kind and compassionate and always willing to help someone in need. I am posting a picture of my Father showing me my very first cat Flossie. Flossie walked out to the field where my Father was to die. She wanted to be next to him when she passed on.
My Mother would read a book to me at night until I feel to sleep. My Mother was kind, gentle, compassionate and very caring. My Mother would pick me up from school when I was sick and take me home and I would get better quickly with her loving care. When I was very sick as a young child my parents slept on the floor next to me in my hospital room until they knew I would finally get better.
My Mother was a librarian for over thirty years. She checked out a lot books from the library for me to read. My Mother read a lot and now I love to read a lot. Knowledge is learned through books and from your parents, God and friends.
I was very blessed to have the most perfect parents possible in my life. My parents had good Christian values. Some of their values were treat people like you would want to be treated, help people in need, if you cannot say anything good then do not say anything at all and the spoken word is like a sped arrow lost in the night. My Mother wrote down the following to me in a autograph book that I had people right down sayings in. My mother wrote : As down the river of life you glide I wish you a long and beautiful ride.
My Father and I took care of my Mother at home until the last three days of her life. My Mother died in our local hospital. I went to visit my Father everyday in the Rest Home for three years and three months. My Father died in the Rest Home. God Bless my parents for enriching my life in so many wonderful and awesome ways.
