MOTHER AND FATHER
In my case, parenting was very difficult. I was raised in an orphanage and had no idea what parenting was all about or what was involved, so I did the next best thing. I just guessed at it. Now that my children are all grown up and have families of their own, I decided to take a moment to look back in the past.
I sat here wondering about what kind of a job I had done as a parent. Oh! There are a few things that I regret and a few things, which I wish I had done differently. That was a really hard question for me to answer. I turned off my computer and walked into the bedroom. I turned on the TV and the first thing I heard was someone saying:
"Look at Adam and Eve. They had the best father that ever was and look at what they did."
I smiled as I lay back on the bed. It was really good to know in my heart that no parent, mother or father, is ever 100 per cent perfect.
