103: My New Bumper Sticker

When I began writing, I hated Facebook. What a disgusting ocean of incriminating party pics some of our children enjoy posting.
     And then there are the “Status Updates” that make your toes curl. Would teens really say those reprehensible and repulsive things to the police officers, their teachers, their principals, their coaches, and their neighbors … if they were standing in front of them?

Months after I vented about my aversion to Facebook, I find myself gaining inspiration from this modern form of communication.

     Today’s inspiration is courtesy of a great mom, H; she found this piece on a Facebook page called “Happy Family,” and posted it on her “Wall.”  It is a quote that has been “Liked” and “Shared” by many around the world.

“My promise to my children ~ as long as I live ~ I am your Parent 1st ~ your Friend 2nd. I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare & hunt you down like a bloodhound when needed because I LOVE YOU ! When you understand that, I will know you are a responsible adult. You will NEVER find someone who loves, prays, cares, & worries about you more than I do! If you don’t hate me once in your life – I am not doing my job properly. Re-post if you are a parent & agree.”

I think I have found my new bumper sticker. And I want a T-shirt too.

  1. I love this post. Soon it will be on my wall.
    You quoting my post from earlier in the week made me cry. I pray that somehow these things we share make a difference to others.
    My boy “says” it's going to work out without as much fallout. I don't know how much of that is true, as truth is slippery with him; THAT has been an issue for years. I want life to teach him lessons, I just don't want those lessons to cost him everything.
    Keep up the good fight! That way one day they will thank us for making it possible to see this stage in life in the rearview mirror with adult perspective.
