so, I keep thinking about this topic lately. I can't imagine my children grow up and become exactly like me. so Imma teach them what I know about life.
1. God Is Everything
whatever you do, remember 1 thing: HE knew it before you did it.
2. Be Patient
you have to be real patient, but I know we're not God. I understand if you sometimes can't handle your temper. I'm not that patient too, baby.
3. Respect Daddy & Mommy
this is important. there's no excuse to not respect mom and dad. if they made mistakes, it's their fault. you don't need to judge them.
4. School, Home & Church
if my kids want to go somewhere it's their right. but I will make sure that they will be at home before 10, school in the morning, and church on Sunday.
5. Thank You
ALWAYS say "Thank You" when someone did something for you or to you. say thank you even when you're mad.
6. Do Not Keep Secret
anything happen to you in life, tell mom and dad. it's your fault or not, tell us. it's about your friends or your crush, tell us. if that thing will make us mad, no matter how mad we are at you, we will forgive you.
7. Watch Your Mouth
anything you say, will affect people around you. watch out. it's either you'll lose a friend or gain an enemy.
whenever you make mistake, apologize. mom and dad promise you we will do the same thing. :)
9. When You Grow Up, Love Regardless
because that makes you can handle every problem you guys had.
10. Live Like You're Gonna Die Tomorrow, Work Like You're Gonna Die In 100 Years.
you know what I mean. do something good every day. if you make mistake, ask God to forgive you. and work hard.
I imagine if 20 years from now my son/daughter will read this and they'll say: that's exactly what mom told us to do!
