Something really complicated.

I am going to write about something really complicated today. But, it’s alright because dad can help me out when I stumble. Dads are good at helping their young children out when they stumble and fall. Err... mom s too. Children, on the other hand may not help their dads out when their dads get older and stumble and fall. Oops!

Dad said that there are many places parents can go to when they get older. They are the homes away from homes. They are homes. Not your own homes, but homes... he he. There, they will have people who will help the older moms and dads out should they stumble and fall.

Their children; who they once helped (when they were tiny and often stumbled and fell), will visit once a month. They can only visit once a month because they are very busy.

I forgot what was that I wanted to write that is really complicated!

Oh! Never mind, it will come back to me.... he he. LoL

hmmm... I once remembered a fren of my parents told me. A couple can raise 10 kids, by providing them homes, food & studies BUT the 10 kids can't even provide their parents' needs when they are old oredi. sad isnt it... sigh! o.O

mott said...

It depends, I guess....

Let them go and they'll come back to you. Hold them tight, and they want to run far far away.

;-)

As a parent, I already foresee my life, alone. It's part of life...old people can't be part of young people's lives... we are just too "mah fun".

well, all i can say is that a home will always be a home together with yr love ones..and ... a home will never be a home when you are home alone.... (sorry if it sounds more complicate than yours...)

i'm making sure when we buy our next house i will have a place for my parents if they need to move in when they are to old.

whiteyin said...

Very comlicated ^^;

But just like irish daisies said, I'll make sure to visit my parents often, despite of being busy with works.

Or maybe we can live together?

Thanks for ding-dong-ing me! ^^

Regardless of how old and ailing they are, even though it is not convenient,i will try and take care of them always remembering without them i will never be who i am.I have started that already and i pray God for the grace, enablement and financial ability to see them through until God called them home.

Sweet Jasmine said...

Glad that everything's ok now :)

mmm. i guess parents should have the choice of wanting to be where they are. if they want to stay with u and have a maid hired by all means they deserve it. so yea, a child's job is to try give back what they gave way back in time :)

those homes aren't necessarily happy places. they can be pretty miserable.

Rei said...

Good thinking, sadly true. Morale : remember how your parents loved you. All they asked for is your companionship, understanding and patience when they grow old.

nimzoindy said...

Yeah, i'm agree with what rei said. It will come our time when we grow older and we want our children to support and help us. Of course we also want our generation continue doing the same as well.

eNNy said...

when our parents are old, we must take care of our parents. It's our responsibility. Don't be too complicated.
