One day my Dad commented that Mom complained, “That little Miss Gloria takes over everything!” When my father shared this with me I realized that both my Mom and Dad can still take charge of their own lives. While I know I have major decision-making responsibility for my parents, my mom’s statement caused me to think about presenting these decisions in a respectful manner.
Speak to your parents with honor and respect as you keep them in their adult roles. They are still the pillars of your family. In fact, continue to tell them that they are strong living oak trees that provide love and shade to the generations.
