When was the last time you've said "I Love You" to your parents?

I am guilty of not telling my father that I love him but then, we haven't meet for a while but with my mom, I always tell her that I love her in my every email and our chat would not end without telling our love for each other. For some people, these three words are no so difficult to say. So i am just curious, when was the last time you've told your parents you do love them?

I tell them every chance I get. I moved 1600 miles 3 years ago, and it was the first time in my life (I was 45 when I moved) that I had lived that far from them. We had lived in seperate cities, but always within 3 hours of each other. We normally talk on the phone at least a couple of times a week, and I always tell them I love them before hanging up and they tell me the same. I always end all my emails, letters, and phone calls with my daughters in the same way.

hi chrysz, i never say it explicitly i think because of our culture in our country, we don't usually express our feeling verbally, we just show it. well, maybe also we don't expressively show it. hugging is not usual here. we just do it rarely, in a very special occasions.

my mom never says i love you too me. so i've always found it difficuly saying it to her. but she did tell me she loved me when i had my miscarriage in may. so i guess that would be the last time i said it to her.

Hi chrysz, I am saying it everyday since we are txting everyday with my Dad and Mom! I am glad we are open about our feelings and it's not too late for you! You can always extend those 3 words and I am sure he will be very happy!

I tell my mom I love her at least every Sunday when I talk to her. I talk to my dad less often but, I do tell him I love him every time I talk to him or see him. I don't remember my family saying I love you often when I was growing up, but now, I tell all my family I love them, every time I get the chance to talk to them.

chrysz - I grew up in a time and place where parents did not always say they loved their children. Sometimes I wondered if they did love me. My parents are in their 80's now and we have never said I love to each other. It sounds weird, but my parents are weird. Lovable, but different.
