The gift you didn’t know you gave

God bless you if you were a good kid. God bless you for not causing trouble. God bless you if creating drama for others wasn’t your style. You gave your parents a priceless gift. It’s at the top of the list of every nice thing you ever did for them. You spared them heartache. You gave them the gift of not having to worry about you or how you would turn out. You gave them peace of mind.

God bless you if you weren’t such a good kid. God bless you for turning your life around. God bless you for changing your ways, taking care of yourself, and staying out of trouble. You are giving your parents a priceless gift. It’s a gift that erases any memory of how upsetting it was during your worst times. Don’t worry about how to make it up to them. You can’t. You’re giving them the only thing they want. You’re giving them peace of mind because they don’t have to worry about you or how you will turn out.

God bless you if you were a good kid or not such a good kid. Either way, the Sun of Righteousness rises on you with healing in his wings. “He will change parents’ attitudes toward their children and children’s attitudes toward their parents” (Malachi 4:6 GW). You can live in peace and love each other for it.
