Way to be a great mom! They never had a cluie to the difficulties.
Children's prospectives of struggle is oft completely different from ours!
We had lettuce or tomato sandwiches when I was little. Little did I know that there were times when we couldn't afford meat.But I was happy then. A lesson to be content and thankful just where you are. Things will always change for the better!
I recently remembered days where I used to scrape my money together to buy; literally a few large shrimp for lil lady and i so we could have a treat. Now, we can actually go to a restaurant and buy a complete shrimp dinner, but I do miss those days sometimes. One things for sure though, is that I've never grown too proud and can truly appreciate those days and the humility of them.Love to live; live to love!
I remember having a similar conversation with my mom years ago. At the time, I didn't know we were dirt poor. In my sheltered little mind, I thought I had the best childhood...ever - with my highwater pants, no name brand sneakers, and PB&J sammiches for dinner.My BabyGirl is the same way. She is completely unaware of our struggle.
Oh, don't get me started with memories of the "broke old days." I knew we didn't eat like other families with snacks and soda, but my mom was an awesome cook on a tight budget. I recently discovered that gift was passed on to me! ;)
