When you asked my son when he was 6 years old what he wanted to be when he grew up – in a moment he would respond with joy & happiness – A SuperHero!
The SuperHero goal continued until he was even 11 years old!
No matter what anybody said his goal was to be a Superhero!
I still remember a group of children with him, all his age being asked what they wanted to be when they grew up…
This was in front of 150 other adults…parents, grandparents & friends and people we didn’t know.
There were doctors, fireman, nurses, teachers, ambulance officers, police officers, mothers & last but not least… SuperHero!
Well as you can imagine…
After this many years… I am trying to think of other occupations for my son to connect with… because obviously he connected with something which wasn’t real! (so I thought in my mind).
When ever I saw a new occupation, I would show it to my son.
Till one day in frustration, I was trying to help him see some (adult) reality I said “being a SuperHero doesn’t pay much.”
He said “he didn’t mind! – All I want to do was help people! – Mum”
I have tears in my eyes now, as I write this…
Oh to see through the eyes of my son more often…
In being a SuperHero! – All He really wanted to do was Help People!
Got me thinking…
Every Caregiver is a SuperHero – giving of their heart to enrich the lives of another.
You are a SuperHero!
It’s time to celebrate being a Superhero!
Just for Fun!
Grab a towel and pin, tie or hold it around your neck like a cape and be the Superhero You Are!
Pretend to have a Big S on your T-Shirt for Superman or a bat on your cape for Batman… and
Save the Day!
Save the World!
Be a Superhero Today!
Help someone today!
Most men don’t have tiaras so could they use a towel and pretend it’s their Superman or Batman cape?
Remember to grab your towel cape and be a Caregiver Superhero!
I appreciate your thoughts and comments!
