I miss my Mom today…..On the Subject of Mothers day….I know of people, family and so called friends who run and hide their heads in the sand because they fear getting old. They ignore their parents and relatives so they don’t have to take care of them. They give the obligatory Mother’s day plant because it puts a band-aid on the guilt and they don’t feel so bad themselves. I don’t know what it is? They have this emptiness, this void. They live in an imaginary world. Was it the way they were brought up that they lack compassion and kindness or is it the world we live in? The world of imaginary perfection. Its such a shame they are the way they are because it may feel ok to stay away now, its later that they will pay the price. Nothing is for nothing. There is always a consequence to questionable behavior. If you are just selfish or even angry and seek revenge, that little feeling of guilt might feel small and pass at the moment but it gets bigger as you get older and someday in the not to distant future when you look in the mirror the past and that little feeling of guilt catches up to you and turns into a huge pang of fear. You might think that you have buried your conscience but it will surface when you least expect it. Even if you think you don’t have one. When you go to visit your parents or grand parents in the convalescent home or assisted living center visit the seniors that are there. Do it because you want to not because you have to. Help them to smile. Keep in mind the sayings “Time fly’s” and remember, “What goes around comes around“.
