A Parent’s Wish vs. A Child’s Escape

They say that a mother and their child share a special bond like no other. Its a difficult feeling to explain or understand but it does exist. A mother nurtures her child from a young age and further strengthens that bond. There is a certain dependency that the child has on its mother which makes that bond that much more powerful. Children often share a bond of comfort and knowing that everything will be ok with their father – another indescribable yet special feeling. As we children grow we take that relationship for granted. A parent’s wish is always to have their children in their life and share special moments together. We don’t really understand what we have until we see it slip away. Children especially during their teenage years look for ways to avoid their parents or minimize time spent with them. While that is the norm among many children, we have to recognize everything our parent’s sacrificed for us. I know my parents often gave up her dreams of driving a nice car, wearing nice clothes or fancy dining. They decided to live a basic life so they could save money for us. As a child this isn’t something you appreciate or even consider. However, after I got married and left my house, I realized my relationship with her was slipping. I didn’t spend as much time with them and with distance my heart certainly grew fonder. I look back at everything they have done for me and appreciate them for everything. My parents have come to terms with me not being there anymore, and while I’d like to go back I realize I need to move on with my life. They want to enjoy their retirement together and I want to spend as much time with them as I know their time is limited. What was a Parents’s wish has now become my wish and what was my escape has now become theirs. I will always look over them and love them for everything they’ve done for me.
