Parents Dru.gg Children

God bless the parents who dru.gged us
The following was sent to me via e-mail, and I believe it would still stand true today if it were applied by parents.
Mothers Who Dru.gged Us!
The other day, someone at a store in our town read that a methamphetamine lab had been found in an old farmhouse in the adjoining county and he asked me a rhetorical question.
ďWhy didnít we have a dru.g problem when you and I were growing up?Ē
I replied, ďI had a dru.g problem when I was young:
I was dru.g to church on Sunday morning. I was dru.g to church for weddings and funerals.
I was dru.g to family reunions and the community socials no matter the weather.
I was dru.g by my ears when I was disrespectful to s.
I was also dru.g to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if I didnít put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me.
I was dru.g to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed with soap if I uttered profanity.
I was dru.g out to pull weeds in momís garden and flowerbeds and out of dadís fields.
I was dru.g to the homes of family, friends and neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no one to mow the yard, repair the clothesline, or chop some firewood; and, if my mother had ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for this kindness, she would have me back to the woodshed.Ē
Those dru.gs are still in my veins and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say or think. They are stronger than or ; and if todayís children had this kind of dru.g. problem, America would be a better place.
God bless that parents that dru.gged us. Have a nice day and a better tomorrow.
