“Honor your father and your mother.” Exodus 20:12
Unfortunately, I did not live this verse at various times in my life. No, I was not a difficult child, but on the inside, the thoughts I had towards my parents were not always good. Eventually, under the right circumstance, the thoughts became words that came out of my mouth about them. Those words were not honoring.
Now that I am a parent, I see what they were trying to do. I understand why we could not always afford everything and even if we could why we did not get everything.
I get it!
So while they are still living I am going to give them their roses. I will give them words of appreciation and thanks for what they did for me.
They were not perfect but they were perfectly suited to parent me.
If you still can, Go and Honor your parents in person. If they have passed away they can still be honored with positive words about they things they may have done right.
