Buddhism helps teach us how to repay our debt of gratitude
to our father and mother.
Even just a few words of appreciation is great.
Let's present our parents with bouquets of smiles.*

*"One never in any way disobeys a parent; is always mindful of providing a parent with all manner of good things, and if this happens to be impossible, in the course of a day one at least smiles twice or thrice in their direction." - "The Four Virtues and the Four Debts of Gratitude", WND-II, page 636
