Introducing my parents
June 18, 2017 9:57pm CST
I have lost both my parents but they are vivid in my memory Both loved us all and managed to give us the best education despite having financial difficulties. Today we are all doing well. My father was good with his hands. He decorated my first holy communion candle with beautiful white roses. He was creative and designed his house. He was no architect. He only had middle school formal education but he could solve maths problems of a graduate level. My parents thought they would lose me when I was just 2 and that got me attached to them, specially my father. My mother adored her husband. They were like two love birds. She never addressed him by his name but just said 'Can you hear me' Mother was strict with us unlike father who would ask my mother to handle us if we were beyond handling. My mother had the gift of the gab to manage the household despite there being hardly any money to go by My mother was extremely kind to animals. We had all sorts of them in the house. I lost my father when he was just 57 but mother lived to a ripe old age of 92 - well loved by family, neighbours and friends.

@allknowing okay. The creativity comes from him. I am sure if he had the opportunity at this time he would have been able to showcase his talents. My cousin is also very talented in arts and wanted to pursue his further studies in this field. His mom forced him to become a lawyer and he couldn't say no since his mother is sick.

It was her responsibility to see us all independent and happy I suppose that God kept her that long. Let me tell you one thing. She was thoroughly spoilt with so many of her kids, sons and daughters in law, and grand children mollycoddling here. One happy woman I say
