Just as individuals have basic human needs to function, relationships provide people with emotional, security, physical, social and educational needs. The family is the primary source of support for people when they deal with problems in their everyday lives. Above all, our family relationships enables us to learn from each other, develop and grow and live more productive and meaningful lives.
Honey, there is something about my kid that makes my mom SMILE SO BIG – and it makes me feel good as well!!…. We just came back from doing a few errands and I went to pick my son up really fast to get back to the hospital and boy did we cut up. Although she has other grandkids – she has an amazing bond with my son……
My oldest sister is such a God send – she is such a sweetheart and her ability to ALWAYS stay calm used to drive me up the wall but NOW – I ever so appreciate it… She has qualities of my mom that I do not obtain and I have qualities of my mom that my sister does not obtain –
Therefore makes us a nice good mixture of my mom! Sitting in a room and just loving on her and making her happy brought us both joy- and my son is a light to ALL OF US!
I don’t know what in the world I would do if things were different in regards to my family status! We are small in number but we are STRONG and all very close .
It is safe to say that out of 5 kids and me being next to the baby that I am the closet with my momma – ( and my daddy..rest his soul ) ….. ( I am positive to some degree that the other siblings would also agree as well – )
So when I called and was talking to my mom …I was able to pick up that something was not right –
Whether it is knowing that my mom is irritated because she ran out of her favorite gum or candy
Whether it is knowing that my mom is not in the mood to leave the house
Whether it is knowing that my mom is lonely by the way she starts off in a conversation
Whether it is knowing that someone called her that ruffled her feathers
Whether it is knowing that something is GOING ON in her body and she does not want to speak on it
Well……….. it was like a few years back – I obtained the same feeling about my mommy while we were on the phone in the afternoon while I was leaving early for work ……. UNFORTUNATELY but gratefully – I was right ……
Glad that God DID IT AGAIN – and made sure that my mommy cakes was alright… Thank God for LIFE and praying that things will continue “to stay on course” ……. I wish that those chairs and sharing her bed with her was a bit more comfy! LOL
Hospitals are not fun – because they ONLY represent LIFE or DEATH ….grateful that all is groovy with The Coleman’s.
