help!

sometimes i dread it when i receive sms's like this from my daughter....

usually, she wants something done immediately.











sometimes i can't do it because i'm tied up at the hospital, in which case i just give some advice over the phone & leave it to her ingenuity or resourcefulness to sort the issue out. which is not a bad thing because she can't be depending on me forever for solutions or answers.

sometimes, i'm at home, so i help her out. but i must appreciate that she still realises that she can depend on me just when she needs me most, esp now that she has flown the nest.

You should be proud, In her eyes you are indispensable.

UG,

too bad she has limited internet access at the hostel, or else, she'd know how to get into thesaurus.

Yes, you should be happy. I misunderstood my dad so I grew up very bitter. I insisted to do things myself or get help from mom and friends than turning to my dad. I now know that he wanted to help, but couldn't.

I realized that being given the opportunity to help someone is a blessing.

I think my kids will also send me sms like these if I were a doc.. but now that I am not, I never receive SOS sms.. hahaha... I think they know me when it comes to education! :)

and i am grateful for such wonderful parents!

doc said...

Yvonne,

yes, it's indeed a great blessing to be able to help!

Claire,

actually the SMS has nothing to do with medical advice. most times my daughter just wants some reassurance that we are still there for her.
