The past three months have been very hard on me both physically and emotionally. From spending eight weeks in physical therapy with no real improvement to beginning to see a wonderful chiropractor, in the hopes that this would improve my condition, I know whole-heartedly that I could not have done it without the support from my parents.
The timing of my pelvic and back pain couldn’t be worse, with my husband working long hours at the Capitol and me having to try to physically take care of my daughter.
During this time my parents have gone over and beyond in helping me care of my daughter. From taking her in the evenings, to overnights at their house and keeping me company after work, I would literally be lost without their help.
You can have all the friends in the world who care for you, but there is nothing that compares to the love and compassion a mother and father shows to their child during their time of need.
I can recall growing up during my teenage years and being so frustrated with them, irritated that they were asking me too many questions and trying to get into the middle of my social life. Now, I look back and all they were doing was trying to help, just the way they are doing now for me.
My mother says it best, “There is no greater love than the love between a mother and daughter.” She is certainly right about that and once I feel 100% better, I am going to show to my parents just how important they are in my life and how much I truly value and appreciate everything they have done for me.
To the readers – have any of your parents helped you out during a very difficult time in your life? How did it make you feel and how has your relationship grown from that experience?
