We are all kids in the eyes of our parents, and being an adult does not exclude us from that. They love us today as much as they did when we were young. They miss having the right to cuddle us, pamper us and guide us. And it is but proper to NOT take that right to being a parent to us away from them.
There are times that we see sons and daughters treat their parents unkindly, or even badly. It’s not an excuse that they are old or senile or have deteriorating reasoning for us to take advantage of their frail minds and bodies.
We should in fact, take care of them and show them more that we love them; that somehow in return for all the love and care they selflessly gave us in our early years. And how do we do that?
BE RESPECTFUL at all times. Not only on how we speak to them, but also by valuing their opinions, advices and decisions.
BE RESPONSIBLE to have the life our parents hope for us to have. They give their all to provide for yes just so we will have a bright future. Let it not be a futile effort by throwing it away by taking vices, not studying hard and having peers that will lead you astray. We should be responsible enough to have a good life and in return be able to take care of them in their twilight years.
BE UPRIGHT by keeping God’s commandments all of these are ways to having a good foundation to a sturdy life.
BE PRAYERFUL because this will give assurance to parents that you are in good hands; that God will take care of you even in their passing…in addition to God blessing you each day.
