If you could say anything to either of your parents, living or dead,
what would it be?
I would tell my Mother that I understand how she felt about having grandchildren. She would tell me when I was a young girl that when I had my own child, I would understand the love that she and Daddy had for me.
she was right; when my baby girl was born, my whole life changed forever, and it is incredible..
When she had grandchildren, I could see the light in her eyes and the patience she showed as she explained how to do something to them...and, she said, 'when you have your own grandchildren you will understand how it feels. I watched her with my daughter as she taught her to love the land...and I had an inkling of what she was feeling.
Now that I have my own grandboys I truly understand.
My words to her would be....'Mother, there is a symphony is my heart each time I think of my grandboys and each time they are with me. Just as you felt when your grandchildren were near.'
After reading some of the other writers' answers, I decided to answer my own question. I think if I could speak to my parents, I would say that I love them and I realize they did the best they could as parents with the awareness they had. What more can anyone do?
I love you would be top of my list although I tell them that everyday anyway!!
I'd tell them how much I regret not expressing my love and affection for them, and also not having them express theirs to me.
Both of my parents have passed on, but to my Dad, I would say "Thank you for the inspiration and the time that we spent together. You have taught me patience and have given me an education that I could never have gotten in any institution. You are in my heart forever."
To my Mother:
"I miss you dearly, but until you were gone, I didn't realize that your passing was the best thing for me. I was finally out from under your constant umbrella of guilt trips and manipulation. How could you have done those things to us that you did? How could you have treated Dad the way that you did? It's all behind us now, someday we'll meet again."

Inquiring minds want to know... Has anyone changed their opinion of Donald Trump for whatever reason? I know he's lost a few supporters, but not very many; and it seems like we might be getting used to Trump's cadence. Things don't feel quite so raw, anymore. Am I right about that?I have never been...

The living know that they shall die but the dead know not anything. Are the dead really ignorant...In the past I have met people who put your spirit/soul in the grave with you after death. Some allow it[spirit] to roam freely and may even claim that it attends its own funeral service. When people...

To understand death, we first have to understand life. Life is the Bible states, And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2: 7 So, life is body + breath= a living soul.what then is death body...
