Make this the day you make a U turn for your parents.

-Resolve to set a day and time each week to either call or write to them. Make a list of things you will talk about with emphasis on listening instead of unloading on your own stupid problems.
-Take them out for dinner and movies or just plain drive at least once a month, instead of being cheap and crazy to wait for ONE day in a year.
-Buy and arrange for them to watch their favorite old movies on the best electronic equipment you can provide – at home.
-Get them a pet, if they don’t have one now with consideration to how much they can take care of somebody else. Go for a parrot or a bird in case of mobility issues.
Pet therapy is proven to help people cope with their problems.
-Buy them the top of the line mattress. That will be the best investment you will ever make of your cheap money.
-Never frown or be rude to them, irrespective of ANYTHING. Be kind to them in words and deeds.
Remember you are alive and thriving today largely due to them. They did the best they could to make you happy and healthy. Now it’s your turn to repay that debt. Don’t be cheap and stupid.
-Never EVER ask them for financial help NO MATTER what you are going through. Have some balls to deal with your stuff on your own without burdening your folks financially and emotionally.
-Provide all you can financially if they are in need. Remember the money you have today is really theirs. Why? Just visit my basement after 11:00 pm any night and I will explain it in a manner you will never forget.
-Include them in your prayers EVERYDAY BEFORE you ask for your own cheap stuff.
-Set an example for your own kids by putting your parents ahead of your own needs.
-Show immense respect and gratitude every moment you are with them. You will reap rewards you never can imagine today.
JUST FREAKING DO IT.
