Thank Your Mom...

When you were 15,
your mom came home from work,looking for a hug.
You thanked her by having your bedroom door locked.

When you were 16,
she taught you how to drive her car.
You thanked her by taking it every chance you could.

When you were 17,
she was expecting an important call.
You thanked her by being on the phone all night.

When you were 18,
she cried at your high school graduation.
You thanked her by staying out partying until dawn.

When you were 19,
she paid for your college tuition,
drove you to campus, and carried your bags.
You thanked her by saying good-bye outside the dorm so you wouldn't be embarrassed infront of your friends.

When you were 25,
she helped to pay for your wedding,
and she cried and told you how deeply she loved you.
You thanked her by moving halfway across the country.

When you were 50,
she fell ill and needed you to take care of her.
You thanked her by reading about the burden parents to their children.

And then, one day, she quietly died.
And everything you never did came crashing down like thunder on YOUR heart.

I can't stand my mom, but she loves me to death. When I pray at night, I ask God to watch over her and to change my heart so that I can love her the way a daughter should. My mom is mean spirited and judgemental, but I think she means well.

Good to make your acquaintance, 'Nefty.
