Today we celebrate parents. Those who guide us and help us achieve our goals. Are they perfect? Is anyone perfect? Since no two people are the same it is impossible to take others experiences and say they have all the answers. Parents don’t either but they try, bending themselves to help us become the people we are. No one knows exactly who created today, some think it was a candy company to sell more products but it is not Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, it is a day to recognize all of what our parents do for us and as individuals themselves. Bill Clinton proclaimed the day in 1994, the 4th Sunday of July. It is a time to honor our parents for doing the best they could and recognizing that we are better for it.
How to celebrate – Take your parents to lunch if you are lucky enough to still have them. List all the things you can remember that you know your parents did for you. Do a family tree.
