Daily Prompt: Careful

My mother taught me many things as a child. One of those things was how to brace myself for disappointment. She would tell me that not all the grass is greener on the other side. I did test that theory a few times and usually it proved to be correct, okay?! So, to this, my mom taught me to “be careful what you wish for”. Not so much anymore, but when my kids were growing up, I was always wishing to make our struggles less. I provided what we needed and things were rough. But I would keep my perspectives in check with that saying, “be careful what you wish for”. No matter what we didn’t have…we always had each other, and thanks Mom. You taught me well.
