I love doing things for others, always have. But I would like to be asked!!
I have raised 4 boys(Andrew 28, Daniel 25, Stephen 20, Joseph 18), and they are all turning into tremendous men (in my opinion). I have spent a ton of time making sure they know what to do to become Great Sons, Great Husbands, Great Fathers, and Great Men.
My sons can do just about anything.
They know how to clean a house toilets included. They know how to cook and to cook on a budget…everything from scratch in my house. I taught them how to shop, how to save money and to shop wisely. Taught them how to sew and repair their own clothes, and how to iron so they look great when they go out. They can set a table, decorate a house, and they know how to pick out appropriate clothing( okay #2 son is color blind, so he has a bland wardrobe)!!
They can all take care of the lawn, weed whacking mowing, and gardening. They can even can, dry and freeze the produce that they grow!! They know how to take care of their cars (not really the oldest, he just hires someone to do it)and the tools they use.
They know how to care for animals and how to show kindness and mercy to them. They learned their work ethic from their father, and there is not a better teacher in the world. They know how to act in public and how to treat their elders. They know how to help a neighbor and how to offer strength to strangers. They treat their Grandparents with reverence, and their love for each other is unconditional and everlasting….
but they never ask, they just tell me.
Hey Mom, I need some clean jeans, Mom I’m hungry what are you cooking, Mom we’re having a party Saturday night, Hey Mom some friends and I are coming over Saturday, can I have some money….and on and on the list goes…
How can 4 young men be so wonderful but always forget to “Just Ask Me”…..I always say yes!!
