When was the last time you told your parents you love them?

You know what, I have a real hard time with that, now that you mentioned it! We get along great, they always tell me how they appreciate me helping them (because my mother is in a wheelchair, and my dad has to have a walker to get around,and my sister and I take care of them, at their house with the help of Home Health Care support), but I just don't get around to telling them how much I need them, and have always appreciated what they have done for the past 50yrs for me! But I just feel, that they know I love them, because I am sacrificing all my time to take care of them!

well, honestly..? i don't even remember when was that last time... probably when i was still small... we'll most of the time we don't really get a long well. even though at times we look like we do but no... so, i don't know... and also we aren't used to being mushy and stuff... and my parents are not sweet though... so that's probably for us saying i love you is uncomfortable... sad, right? but that's how it is with us... how about you?

I don't think I ever have, at least not that I remember. Although New Years Eve, I told my mum I was with people I didn't dislike! (ie. my mum, dad, kids, sis, and sis's boyf). That's probably the closest they'll ever get from me!

The words I love you are not something that is really used in my family for some reason. I can remember three times when my mom wrote or said it to me and once when my dad did. I've never heard my parents say it to each other. I think once in awhile I write it in a card to them, about once a year maybe. I know that my mom can't stand it when people say I love you just to end a conversation. She thinks it puts less meaning on the words, and her mother said it to just about everyone. I think I probably picked up on that view point a little bit, though I do say I love you to my kids and husband quite often.

I talk to my mom on the phone everyday and after our converstaion I always say love yah before I say goodbye. The same with my children. They always say it and I say me too. Or visa versa. I say I love you and they say me too. I think it is good to tell them and to be told, I love you, because you never know if it may be the last time. You never know what can happen. Besides that it makes me feel good to say it and to hear it.
