The Cycle of Parents & Children

Parents have children and do their best to raise them with love, compasion, morals and everything else that their parents had passed on to them. You give them everything they need and most of what they want. The child graduates from highschool goes off to college coming home on the weekend to wash their clothes, buy their groceries etc. for them to return to school. The parents whole meaning is to try to make it easier on their children. Parents buy land, house, guns, diamonds and everything else to leave it for their children. If the Lord is willing, the children will marry and move close to the parents. This is what I am looking forward to so I can be close to child and hopefully my grandchildren.

I hope my son will move back to Natchez and marry a girl that loves him as much as I love his dad. We have one son, Slick and live next door to my husbands parents. My father-in-law has had alot of problems. In 1999, he had surgery on his foot and developed MRSA. He lost is leg and had to take IV antibiotics 2 to 3 times a day for 6months. I would have to get up at 5a.m. take the medicine out of the refridgerater so it could get room temp then go back at 6a.m. to start the IV. This was done for 6months one time and 3months two other times. Now my mother-in-law is sick and has to be cared for. At the same time my dad is in a SNF hospital after having a bus wreck. Being the oldest child comes responsablity like the one my mom looks to for help. After my dads wreck I stayed with momma at the hospital in Jackson MS. for 3weeks until I felt they where okay by themselves. On Oct. 14, 2009 my laptop was stolen from UMC waiting room but that was not as important as mom and dad being ok. Here it is Janurary 2009 and now it is my mother-in-laws turn again. This is why I am Blogging about the cycle of parents & children.

I pray daily for my son and that he will be successful. Having only one son is scary because who will take care of us when we are old. Parents do not want to be a burden but this is part of the cycle of parents & children.
Parents have children

Parents become grandparents

Grandparents help their children/parents

Children become parents

Children help their parents

And thus the cycle starts over again

The Cycle of Parents &

I did it!

Thank you Jaci. It works! I think I am getting the hang of it. Now I have to figure out how to get it on my website. If we, Natchez, can network together with all of our websites than it will show how united we are in promoting Natchez. I know there are so many people that have moved away but still follow what is happening in Natchez. My goal is to help promote Natchez so my son will be able to come home, work and raise a family in Natchez. That way I can be apart of my grandchildrens life. Buddy and I are vested in Natchez and have worked hard to have land to pass on to Slick. The house we live in was built by Buddy's grandfather, Slick Sr. What alot of people don't realize is the lumber used to build our house came out of the antibellum home Dunlieth Plantation out Hwy 84.

Applying what I learned

My baby boy MC'ing the 2008 Scrap~N~on the River. He was explaining how to vote for scrapbook queen when the ladies suggested to Slick to wear the queens crown for candy.

My brain was in overload at the end of the social media class yesterday. Jaci Rucco was the teacher and she is GREAT! Jaci made the class fun and easy. It seems hard but it realy is not. I cant wait to see if it works as far as getting the information out about Scrap~N~on the River. We have a theme of "Follow Me to Natchez because Scrap~N~on the River Girls Just Wanta have FUN!
