One of the Doodlers posted this video on her blog, and I wanted to share it with the rest of you Doodlers too.
Watch the video 🙂
Such lovely children.. don’t you think? No matter what the world said about the late MJ, it is obvious that he was a great and capable father and he raised his children well. Push aside his eccentricity and other quirks, he’s just a fun and loving father. Beachside strolls, late night snickers, and home-made breakfast, it’s those little memories that mean the world to these kids. Something they will remember till the day they die.
Paris, intelligent girl, she’s got a bright future ahead. She can definitely go far in whatever she chooses to do.
There’s a lot that we can take with us from this video.
One is that we can only control our children so much, but in the end, it’s upbringing and education that will determine how they turn out. We can just pray and hope that when we are gone, they will continue to be the beautiful, well-behaved and charming children we raise them to be.
Two is that it’s the little things that count. It’s not the trips around the world or the numerous mega toys that they remember you by. It’s the precious quality time that you set aside for them, the times when you make them feel that they were special, and that they were the most important person in the world, those are the moments that your kids will treasure. Moments that they will remember, for the rest of their lives.
Prince Micheal loves his morning walks by the beach with his dad.. eating skittles and drinking colas.
Paris’ most favourite memory is of them watching the city lights, just the two of them, eating snickers.
So who are we, who are they (the media and others) to say that he was a wacko dad? In the eyes of his children, he was the greatest dad ever, and that’s what matters most.
No matter how busy you might be, take time out to just have fun with your kids, no matter how young they are. It can even be as simple as catching grasshoppers in the garden. At the end of the day, that will be the priceless memory that they will treasure forever.
