Instead of Sending Flowers, Be the Roses {Kanye}♥

I wonder how often people stop to recollect on where they came from, appreciate where they are now, and think about where they're going in the future...
I feel like people are so caught up in the irrelevance of petty things, especially in our generation, that no one appreciates the things of value that will stick with us when the extra stuff fades away... Education, religion, true love, and family values are things that I've grown to appreciate since reaching college age and being out in the world on my own. These things didn't seem so major when I was in the shelter and safety of my family home...Now, I'm glad that they were always present for me, even though I took them for granted! So I guess it could be based on how one was raised, or their sense of goals and aspirations...because I look at a lot of my peers and wonder what their mothers would think of the things they say and do. I recently passed my one-year marking the anniversary of my mother's death, and I must say, her absence helped me to grow a lot as a woman, and I believe I'm a different person than I was before she was taken away from me. So as someone who doesn't have their mother physically present anymore, giving that little "push" {that we sometimes hate!}, I find myself jealous and wishing for that push again, even if it's just for a little moment... It took me losing my Mommy to realize all I had when she was here. So I just wish and hope that people around me will realize that representing those who inspire you and played a role in shaping who you are today is very important...and take notice of it, so that you can show that appreciation to those people while you still have the chance!
I understand what my mother meant when she would say "It'll all make sense when you get a little older". Things like the latest name brands, and fighting over guys/girls, and being jealous and vindictive are things that I thought people were supposed to outgrow at some point, but I'm starting to become doubtful!! Does anyone have class and home training anymore??
