    For me, I learned to believe in myself and to respect and honor others. My parents were not perfect, but they taught me great lessons about love and life.

      My parents told me that TRUST is Priceless-a TREASURE. You can't pay anybody to trust you or get back the trust once it is broken.

    To be honest, respectful and to love my fellow man. They taught me so much that I will always treasure and exhibit till the end of my days

    My parents were big for talking about having self-respect and respecting not just other people, but animals, property, and the world and life in general.  They were also big for encouraging us to think for ourselves, do what we think is right, and "not just follow the crowd".  Being thankful for our good health was another big one.

    (I know the OP asked for one thing, and I offered three.  Hope my parents are looking down and seeing that I continue to think for myself and write what I thought seemed right for this thread.  lol  )

    I think that it is only recently asa mother myself that I am realising the benefits of some of the things I observed and learned from my parents.  They gave up so much so that we did not go without and we are now in the same position. It is great to be able to look back and use the recipies and budgeting tips that i learned through observing my mother cook for us

    It's better to be poor but honest than rich and manipulative.

    I got my wry sense of humor from my adopted mom, its weird to hear myself say things she used to say to me all the time lol
    I also inherited a love of nature from her. I suspect that my inner strength was inherited from her as well. OK so you asked for one thing and I gave a bit more then that, too bad! tongue

    From my mother I learned compassion and kindness. It is the best gift she could have given me, I think.

    Never give up on your dreams and work hard to achieve your goals..... You never want to look back and say " I wish I had done this"

    The top thing my parents taught me (or rather the thing their example taught me): 

    When searching for a life partner, look for someone whose goals are basically the same as yours.  For example if you want children and he emphatically doesn't, walk away and keep walking - no matter how much your hormones tell you that you "love" this person.

    Sorry, feeling a tad jaded and cynical today.

    To think for yourself and family stands behind you.  I don't know how many times I turn on the news or hear someone talking about these awful things -- doing drugs, stabbings, shootings, all this and it's happening between family members.  Family should be the ones you can count on no matter what.
