In every era and every region of the world, there is one similarity and one common thread – the unconditional love a parent has for their child. Regardless of culture or creed, the bond between parent and child has always remained one of the closest and most important relationships of the human experience.
Unfortunately, in the business of our daily lives, we often fail to give our parents the proper admiration and recognition they deserve. Sadly, many people do not take the time to thank their parents until it is too late. The bond between parent and child goes beyond a biological connection – in fact, in some cases, you may not share any common genetics at all. The role of parent may be filled by a grandparent, mentor or another role model who has made an impact on your life. Whoever this person may be, it is important that you show them just how much they mean to you.
In 1994, the US Congress established National Parent’s Day as the fourth Sunday of every July in order to promote, recognize and celebrate responsible parenting. We hope you choose to celebrate Parent’s Day this Sunday by taking a little time to tell your parent(s) just how much their love and tender nurturing has affected your life. While it may only be a few short minutes out of your day, a phone call, a simple visit or a special keepsake can mean the world to a loving parent.
Here at Iron Accents, we think parents are so important that we’re celebrating all week long! Starting Sunday, we’re asking you to share photos and stories of your parents on our Facebook wall. Every story or photo will count as a submission to our Parent’s Day Contest. At the end of the week, we’ll randomly choose one person for a $50 gift card.
Please join us in recognizing these important people in all of our lives.
