Picture this. Nine months before you are born.
Since the day you were conceived, your parents took care of you. In the nine months before you were born, they loved you before they even met you. For nine months, your mother has carried you and took care of you along with having to deal with the symptoms (swollen legs, back pain, cravings, body changes, etc) that come with pregnancy. It's not easy either, and that's just the beginning! During these nine months, your parents will also get everything prepared to welcome you into the world along with making sure that everything is going well.
After going through nine months of pregnancy, you are introduced into the world which is full of pain and takes a lot out of a person. For the next eighteen years, your parents will be there, to raise you. They will be there for all of your firsts; heartbreak, word, play, sports game, date, and so on. When you are sick, they take care of you even when they are sick themselves. No matter what, they are always there for you even when you don't want them to be. They love you, and they care about you. They only want the best for you. Even when things go south, take the time to try and fix things. They are human beings too. They are far from perfect. Just like you and me.
I know what it's like to lose a parent. My parent missed my high school graduation, and will later miss me graduate college along with other major events in life like marriage, job promotion, family, and so on. Towards the end of their life, I didn't appreciate them as I should have. I didn't appreciate the time that I had with them due to the fact that there was a lot going on. This is why I'm telling you, if things aren't right, I hope that things will work out in the end. I understand that there are situations that are way more difficult than what I went through. Don't get me wrong, but I do hope that whatever your situation is with your parents, that it all can be worked out in the end.
Parents do so much for us, and we should appreciate them for what they do for us.
