My father took such loving care of his mother after her stroke, taking weeks off of work to be by her side while she recuperated. My grandmother always thought there was a chance that she would be able to return home because of my Daddy's loving care for her.
My mother also cared for her mother when she fell and broker her hip and then her knee. She then took her friend to her cancer treatments, which allowed her children to save their time off to be with her in her final days. Her friend's children appreciated her so much that they gave her a figurine from their mother's prized collection, a loving tribute to my mother's kindness.
I wish I was more like my parents. I want to honor them by being selfless, just like they are. To love unconditional like they do. To teach by example like they have always done.
I want to honor my father and mother by making them proud of the person they have raised.
