The Daishonin reminds us to “in the course of a day one at least smiles twice or thrice in their direction." Let’s give our parents a smile every time we see them. That in itself is an admirable expression of our appreciation of them. Let’s live out our lives repaying the debts of our gratitude to all the people who have assisted us in various different ways!
