My folks were Superheroes

My parents were superheroes. Fact.

They may not have worn capes or been able to fly but my parents were true blue superheroes. I certainly don’t think my recovery after the accident would have been as successful without their help. Sadly, my mam passed away seven years ago and my dad isn’t as strong and healthy as he used to be, but they are still ever present in my life.

I really don’t think I have ever shown my appreciation to them for all they have done over the years, especially the delicate time when I was in a wheelchair and my suffering with PTSD.   I mean, I was in my twenties, and when my folks should have been enjoying their grandkids (my kids) they were busy looking after me.

For that I am forever grateful. 


Look after your folks, whatever age you are, whatever age they are.

You never know when you will need them or when they need you to be there for them.
