Being a daughter to my parents, it is heartwarming to be the recipient of their praises. To see their joy for an achievement I get gives me as much joy.
Now, being a parent myself, I can personally say that the days and effort of teaching is truly worthwhile upon seeing your daughter’s every single success. And more so now than before do I appreciate the love and care my parents showered over me because I feel the same need from my own child.
It isn’t easy being a parent, as compared to being a child to our parents. But most of the time, we don’t see that until we are a parent ourselves. Let it not be too late! That while our parents are still being given time for us to reciprocate that love given us, let us use that time and give them our love. Show them the honor and respect they deserve. Bring them the joy of having us by being the good son and daughter they hoped us to be…just as our Lord God hoped to see us, His children.
