Over the weekend, I read a few blogs and even made my way over to “doomsland”.
Also, known as Facebook!
I think you all know by now how much I’m not too fond of Facebook. It’s filled with a bunch of phony’s and if you want to read a bunch of nonsense or self-proclaimed philosophers, scientist and doctors, then make your way over.
I swear I always feel like my IQ drops every time I log on to that death trap.
Anyway, as I was reading, I started to question, “Why do we have to suffer through something to appreciate what we have”?
I read several posts that talked about what someone or what they went through and how greatly they currently appreciate life. Now I’m not here to battle that or discuss this topic, but I want to talk about kids. Not just any kids but more specifically privileged kids, okay, my son!
Everything in life has become accessible to him. He’s intelligent, freakish huge, handsome, and has two parents that would move mountains for him. He recently had the opportunity to work with a defensive lineman from Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he taught him pass rush drills. When my son came home, he told my husband and me about it in the most monotone voice. We, on the other hand, flipped out and couldn’t hold back our excitement.
After my son went back to his room, my blood started to boil. I yelled out his name and said, “GET YOUR BUTT IN HERE NOW”!!!!!!
He knew he was in trouble because I used his full name.
As soon as that giant head appeared in our door, we said, “Do you know how lucky you are to have the opportunities you have. We are paying an arm, and a leg for football camps, training, travel expense, and our grocery bill has doubled due to feeding you better quality meats. And not mention his eating schedule is INSANE!!!
We had to remind him that millions of kids have talent but suffer from a lack of support and money to perfect their craft. We supply him with both! But I would prefer to scale back my support than to watch my child become ungrateful for what he has.
What do you guys think about giving too much support, or is that even thing to have too much support?
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
