“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my mother.” These words spoken by Abraham Lincoln ring true for many of us. Our parents are the ones who raised us, cared for us, and stood by us. As we grow older, we may come to realize that our parents are also aging, and it can be hard to accept this change. We may not even notice the wrinkles on our mother’s face or the loss of strength in our father that we once admired. But the truth is, they are changing, and there is nothing we can do to stop the aging process.
However, there is something we can do. We can show respect, love, appreciation, and acknowledgment to the people who raised us. They sacrificed their own well-being for our sake, always putting us before themselves, and taking on our troubles without hesitation. They committed to us wholeheartedly, and that is why they deserve our respect, gratitude, love, and affection.
Our parents have shaped us into the capable and strong adults we are today. Without their love and care, we would not be who we are. It is our responsibility to show them that their efforts were not in vain. We should prioritize them, take care of them, and make time for them in our busy lives, no matter how hectic things may get.
It may not always fully register, but the reality is that none of us are going to be here forever. However, our love can endure beyond time. The unconditional and unwavering love our parents have given us cannot be expressed in words or poetry. Now, it is our turn to show them that same kind of love while we still have the time.
So, let’s call our parents, visit them whenever we can spare a moment, cook their favorite dish, or make them their favorite soup. Seeing them happy will bring us joy too, and it will be a gratifying experience for our souls. There is nothing more precious in this world than spending time with our loved ones and making them happy. Let’s cherish the moments we have with our parents and show them the love and appreciation they truly deserve.
