Our parents, as we all know brought us into this world - be it, us belonging to a family that's still intact or not, yet our parents were the ones who nurtured us since we were born. So, let me ask, do you take time to spend special moments with your parents, even at your old age? Do you ever think of giving your parents or could be your Mom or Dad a treat, even once a month? Or just give them a few minutes of your time to talk to them about any topic they like to talk to with you?... Was there something you consider so SPECIAL that you did or you plan to do with your parents or could be for your Mom or Dad? Please share it here! Thank you and happy mylotting!

Well i do not think that i have planned something special for them.But what ever i do for them ,i make myself sure that it will be liked and appreciated by them.I am grateful to God that He has bestowed upon me His blessings through my parents especially my mother.She has done so much for me and my brother and it will take a life to return her credits.

hi there kccry its very true that parents always has been there to protect us, feed us and they will always love us. well in my case i live with my parents and i love them very much and i also care for them. I help my mom one time in kitchen and i serve my father every day. They feel it special but i do it just for my love.I don't feel anything special about it. I don't have any earning yet but i will do hard work and do something very very special for my mom and dad. Indeed i will make their everyday so special. Live, Love, Laugh.

I gave myself to Mom durng the last eleven years of her life. She had lived four hours away from me and she was 77 when I helped her find a house near me and near shopping. Then I spent hours a week with her most weeks, and my husband and I spent most Sunday afternoons with her. If she got sick, I could help her out. When she suffered a compression fracture in her spine I spent two months living in her house with her until she was back on her feet, and I also spent hours a day for 21 days while she was in the hospital. I took her to medical appointments and went in with her while she was being examined so I could help her understand the doctor's instructions if she didn't hear them correctly. When she needed to go to the ER, I made sure she went and I took her. When she needed 24-hour care, I managed it and took a shift myself for the last three months of her life , the last two of which she was on hospice care at home. I sat with her when she was dying, and took care of all her arrangements when she was gone. It was a privilege to do these things for her, and I know they meant more to her than any present I could have given her.

Once I earn money, I will prepare something SPECIAL for them. I promise. I too haven't done anything SPECIAL for them. I plan to surprise them by giving them a dream vacation. I still don't know.,

I have not done something special for my parents yet. But I am planning a big one. As soon as I have the money needed to make it happen, I will buy my parents a tour package, so they can visit their dreamed destination.

I try to get them something for their birthdays, and on Christmas. But, that's about it. One thing special I'd like to give them is an all-out vacation in whatever country/countries they choose. Best if I could give them a "trip 'round the world". Hard to do, but still hoping I could while they're still strong and up to it.

Admittedly, I haven't done anything special for my parents. I actually live half way around the world from them, and I rarely even call them. it makes me feel guilty sometimes, specially when I get bogged down with the day to day business of living. And taking care of my family. I just hope that my kids would be kinder when they get older.
