Cherish Your Parents

I was inspired by one of my friend's blog post and here I am typing what you're going to read for the next few minutes. I do hope that when you come to the end of this blog post, you will start acting on it.

Time is ticking and how many of us really realize that we are losing the time we get to spend with our parents? With everything moving so fast these days, it's hard to blame as most of us do not allocate enough time for our parents. Once we have some free time, we will opt for outing with friends.
Since I was young, my parents gave me the freedom to make my own decision. Still, being the good parents they are, they will always give me their most honest advice. By the end of the day, they will support whatever decision that I made. I do admit that some decisions that I have made are wrong and there are times I would stumble and fall. Nevertheless, they are always there to hold me.
Every night before I go to bed, I would hug my parents, give them a kiss on the cheek and bid them good night. In addition to that, I also tell them how much I love them. I know some of us might feel a bit awkward and embarrassed as we are already grown ups. However, think about it, would you rather do it now or later when they are not around anymore.
Remember how in a lot of dramas, the girl will always ask the guy, who will you save if me and your mom fall into the sea. If I was the guy, I will definitely pick my mom. Reason being, in your life time, you will only have one mom and one dad. Nothing can ever replace that. But there are still so many girls/guys out there even if you lose this one.
I always find it a bliss to eat together with my parents. It's a bonding session with good food. What more can I ask for. I also try my best to help them with house chores. If you tell me it's tough to do house chores, imagine your parents going through all that in the process of raising you. Also, the struggle and stress that they have to live with to ensure that there are food on the table to feed you.
So, find time to spend with your parents. Learn to appreciate what they have done for you and repay them by showing your kindness and care. Don't wait till it's too late. When that day comes and you realize you have not done enough, you will live with regrets for the rest of your life.
