    When was the last time you told your parents you loved them?

    How often do we thank our parents for all that they have done?
    If we think about it, we probably do not take out the time to tell our parents how much we love them. Maybe this question will make us retrospect and want to take out the opportunity to tell our parents how much we appreciate what they have done for us.

    I'm always telling my parents that I love them and appreciate what they did for me.  I wasn't fortunate enough to have my own children so when I adopted them I really learned how much they supported me when I was a child.  I can't imagine life without either one of them.  Great question.

    Each time that I talk to my Dad, I tell him this............we do not talk often enough.

    I have his number and he has mine.................in fact, I have had the same Texas number for several states, just so as to not ask him to update his phone!

    I lost my parents as a girl and I wish every day I had the opportunity to let them know how very much I love and miss them.  I make sure my own children are told daily that they are loved and that I am proud of who they are.

    I try to tell them often.  I love them so much and I'm so thankful for them.  Without their love and support, I don't know where I would be today.  It seems that so many people take them for granted...I try hard not too.  I know they won't be here forever, so I want to make the best out of the time I have with them.

    I call my dad at least three times a week. I spoke to him this morning. My mother, unfortunately is a different story. We haven't spoken in years.

    I tell my parents on a pretty regular basis since I don't want that eternal guilt of not having said anything should they kick it.smile

    It actually took a long time--until adulthood--before my stoic parents and I became comfortable saying "I love you" to each other.  Yeah.  I no longer have my mother, but I still tell her that I love her, and I tell my pop that I love him every time we speak.

    I tell my parents every time I talk to them.  I think it is very important to be showing constant gratitude for everything they have done.  I agree with you one hundred percent but I often feel like many people I know do not have this same need to express gratitude.  I think we need to be reminded how to be grateful for the things that we have and the sacrifice our families have given us.  It used to be simply respectful to be gracious but now it seems like it is a chore for many.
