I’ve posted a lot of pictures and blogs about my grandchildren and myself. It’s all so fun and loving. There are never accidents or problems, arguments or fights. It was recently brought to my attention that I surely can’t be that perfect! And I’m not! Believe me…I’m not perfect and I don’t pretend to be.
This picture is of our nine grandchildren who were here all at one time this summer. We have 15 altogether and we really missed the ones who weren’t here.
I’ll come clean in this blog. I love fun, sports, stories, jokes, laughter, giggling, parties, sleep-overs, tea parties, games, etc. There is one thing I dislike and that is disrespect. There is one thing I demand: RESPECT.
Respect for God, parents, country, flag, US president, school, church, laws…you get the picture.
I demand respect for me, my rules, my possessions, my age, my house, my beliefs…
I do get upset when respect is disregarded. Today’s society does disregard respect. I don’t understand it. And when it comes home to me, I get upset. This summer was no exception.
There were times when I got upset. I regret my reactions but I can’t let disrespect go by.
I’ll not go into detail here but I did lose it on one occasion in particular. I cannot tolerate disrespect and disobedience. The kids knew better and they know I mean business.
Is respect too much to ask for? I don’t think so.
I’m concerned about the next generation. Children growing up don’t see respect in adults so how are they to learn respect?
