Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. Ex 20:12
Parents are a great heritage. If yours are still living thank them personally for all their care, concern and love in bringing you up then thank God that you still are blessed with their presence. If perhaps your parents were not worthy and your childhood was not pleasant, still thank God for them because without them you would not have life, at least they gave you the gift of life. Mom and Dad may you both rest in peace.
