My parents have been away for a week now and are due to return tomorrow morning. I've been having to do the house work and tasks that my parents, particularly my mother, would normally do. I've learnt from the last week how tough it can be and that I shouldn't take what they do for granted. From now on I'm definitely going to be more appreciative of what people do for me. How about you, do you take people for granted and does it take a wake up call for you to be more appreciative.
