This started me thinking….I know Honeybear has a mother with a good job, and salary. He gets everything he needs, and then some.
My work is important to me. I love what I do and I take pride in doing a good job.
Will he one day say that I should have had a better job because he did not get everything (because I do not give him everything).
Will he say that he had a mother who loved her job more than she loved him, and spent too much time working?
Will he say that he had a mother who loved her work and he wants to be like that one day?
I wonder what our children will think about us.
I now realise exactly how hard my parents worked, and exactly how privileged I have been and still am.
This lady on the radio had a desire to go to university and obtain a degree, so that she could have a good job, and have a better life. She was inspired by hardship, to be better. And she is. Does she think it was her Mom who inspired her, or was her Mom not good enough?
