Parents photo

Relationship: Im/migrant

I am from Burma (Myanmar), but I have lived in the United States for 8 years. This photo is very important to Burmeses – everyone uses and prays for their parents but it’s only Buddhists. I always use it every day. I pray for my parents twice a day because they had so many kinds of love and gratitude for me. Parents’ values are very important in parenting since they deeply influence all behaviors, attitudes, affect my decision and relationship. They always tell me you can’t buy anywhere honesty, culture and respect, gratitude, generosity, forgiveness and compassion, perseverance, humility, responsibility and love. So I make it look not easy but I’m not young I know it. Whatever, I should be teaching my parents guidelines. I love and miss them forever. Therefore I have father’s day and mother’s day every time.
