No Place Like Home…

Posted on the 10 November 2012 by Drowqueen @theburnedhand

A month ago, my dad reminded me of some things.  I hope you have someone in your life who believes in you like my dad believes in me.

I love you because you are strong.  My old friend often tells me how he admires your strength.
I love you because you are a good mother.  I see two happy children growing up in a happy home.
I love you because you have compassion for others.  You are always willing to help.
I love you because you have many good traits learned from us and others. You want to make life better. You make sure the girls do their homework. You have a strong bond with your husband.
I love you because you care for animals and never neglect them. You really do have a way with your pets that shows you care.
I love you because sometimes I see the little girl in you that I raised. She’s still headstrong but I see her still running around the house.
I love you because you have a good work ethic learned from your mom and me.
I love you because you are my daughter whether we agree or disagree you are my daughter.  No matter how mad you get with me I’m always there for you.
The things that make us mad usually don’t matter. Most of those things are like the wind. They are quickly blown away.  There are answers for most of our problems and praying doesn’t hurt.
And finally I love you because you have remained close to us by visiting, calling, having us over and most importantly letting me spend time with my grandchildren. My grandchildren have been the biggest blessing to me in my old age.

Sometimes you need gentle reminders of who you are and where you are going in life.  So, for my next “No”, there’s no place like home.
