Parents are the source of all that is joyful, all that is beautiful, all that is warm, all that is filled with love. No matter who the parent is they are always a source of something incredible and something essential; comfort, safety, security, therapy, any kind of help and so much more. After becoming a parent myself I have tasted a new kind of sacrifice, maybe sacrifice is not the right word for it, it is giving all you got and completely surrendering, without a second of doubt and with total and complete happiness.
I have recently been blessed with the pleasure of being around many parents, my husbands, my own and several others. I have noticed that their generosity in giving extends and spreads to all those around them. It is such an ecstatic feeling when you are around such an everlasting warmth of a parent.
There are no words that can be written nor spoken that can fulfill the blessing of having a parent, no matter how old you are, how independent or how strong, ,a parent will always be your soft spot, because they are the most precious and beautiful thing any living human or animal has. Do not let pride, greed or high expectations get in the way of your appreciation.
If your parents or a parent is around, be kind to them, appreciate them, be patient and be courteous, after all they went so far for you, literally and metaphorically, since the moment you were born they sacrificed so much for you the simplest of them is their heart and soul.
