Love your parents the way they love you!

For those whose parents are still alive, you are lucky! You are lucky because you have all the time in the wold to show them how much you care for them and how much you love them.  I see a lot of kids who have no patience in dealing with the elderly, even their parents.  They laugh at them, they make fun of them.  If they only look back to those years when they were younger, they would realize how much their parents have sacrificed to bring raise them like what they are now.

Our parents need our understanding, just like how they gave us their full understanding when we were little.  It is now our turn to give back.  We should treat them with respect, affection and love, they way they have always been treating us.  If you have a parent, read this letter from a mother to her daughter, so you understand how parents feel and what their needs are.


"My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through.

If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”... Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep.

When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl?

When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way... remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day... the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through.

If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you.

And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked.

When those days come, don’t feel sad... just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love.

I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you... my darling daughter."

Where To Get High-Quality Aftermarket Performance Parts At Affordable Costs

Whether we admit it or not, most of us never get satisfied with what we have.  We always look for something better. Just like in cars, we always want the best, don't we?  Even if we get a brand new vehicle, not everything on it satisfies our needs and wants.  There is always something we want to improve on.  It's great to know we can easily do whatever we want to improve our car's performance especially for car racing enthusiasts who are looking for high quality gtp performance parts

If you are planning on getting aftermarket performance parts, make sure you are aware of its tradeoffs, if any.  For instance, you want to improve performance by increasing horsepower but you have to sacrifice fuel efficiency, plus the cost of the part.  Actually, almost each part of a vehicle can be upgraded.  Whether you just need brighter headlights or high quality speakers or increase horsepower and fuel efficiency, you will need high quality aftermarket performance parts. 

Make sure you make a thorough research on what you are getting because it may not provide you with what you are looking for, before you purchase it.  It is important that you get it from reputable companies and ZZPerformance is one that is highly recommended.  No wonder, it has become the largest supplier of aftermarket parts for the 3800 and Ecotech platforms and fast expanding to include other markets as well.  

A friend of mine who is into racing has always been into aftermarket performance parts and after a lot of trial and errors in choosing the right parts and the right place to get them from, he now considers himself an expert.  So friends, make the right choice because you don't want to waste your money on low-quality yet expensive parts, don't you?

We have met ..... finally!

I have finally met my long-time virtual friend Recel in person together with her family.  Added bonus was meeting another nice friend Jessica and her family as well.  Yes, Recel and her family drove all the way from Wisconsin to New York to see Niagara Falls.  Recel and I have been friends since i started blogging in 2005 and i only talk to her online until  3 days ago.  Even for a short time, we had fun chatting, eating and boating together.  I could have stayed over night at Jessica's place but i needed to leave at about 9:30PM.  Thanks ladies for the great time.  My husband said he also had a great time even most of the time, we were talking in our local dialect that hubby could not understand.

(L-R) - Jessica, Recel and me

Recel and Jessica are so nice ladies and their families are adorable.  The kids are so cute!  Jessica's in-laws are also kind people.  I am glad to have met you all.  Until next time!

Excited to see a virtual friend ....

I have been blogging since 2005, although i would say, i stopped for awhile and i am not that active in the blogging world now.  For those years, i met a lot of blogger-friends and i think i only met one in person in 2006.  Now, I am looking forward to meeting two of them, Recel and Jessica in 4 days.  I am so excited!  Recel and her family are coming from Wisconsin to NY to see Niagara Falls.  I would love to join them in their trip to the Falls but i would be working and I just took a week off so i could not take another one.  Anyway, i will let you know how the meeting goes.  Stay tuned!
