Speech of Parents Day
The loving, honorable and respected personalities of our life are our parents and grandparents. Our parents make a lot of sacrifices to be able to provide us with material needs and mold us into a better and successful person.
Thanks for World Parents Day, which provided me a golden opportunity to express my gratitude towards my parents for the sacrifices they have suffered and the love they have showered upon me.
In the ups and downs of life, the only people who stood and will stand by us are our parents. At the time when we need our parents, they are available and spare for us and never step back. All other relationships become flimsy except the parents that remain firm till our last breath.
The person who supported me, learnt me, and taught me the skills of a successful life is my father. His mental, financial and moral support paved my path to reach this brilliant career. A mother is the most caring person in our lives. She is the only one who bears every pain just for her child’s comfort. She awakes all night long to look after her sick baby. Shortly saying, a mother is a blessing of God for her children.
Without her prays and support it would be impossible for me to get a certain position in which I am today. Her optimistic attitude and kind words always brought peace to my mind.
Actually, parents are the most precious blessing of God, which can’t be explained through words.
They are the only two people who want their children more ahead than themselves.
In the end, I thank my parents in enthusiasm for their great patience and love for me.
MAY YOU LIVE LONG!
Happy Parents Day
Thanks very much
