And So I Say Thank You, A Letter To My Parents

Thank you both for giving me life, thank you even more for raising me right, for teaching me right from wrong, for leading by example and providing a caring loving home.

Thank you for in stilling in me the values of spirituality, as a mother myself, now I pass on the blessing. As a small child I always knew, no matter my age I'd always need you. When life takes it's sudden turns, when all else seems to fail, I know that you will be there.

My parents, my best friends, the core of my being. Forever I am grateful to you. You've never on me given up. Even when you knew I was wrong, you held my hand and encouraged me to pray and move on, for many situations I endured were not in the plans for my destiny.

Your support I feel deep within my soul, as your child, for me you've always wanted the best. You've given me strength to strive for my goals , to be independent and never settle for less.

When I was young I may not have understood what being a parent was all about, It took me to have my first born to finally figure it out. And now I'm blessed with all four, each one different in their own way, yet still I love them all the same. I thank you both once again, my parents my best friends.

We can really never understand our parents until we became parents. I honestly missed my parents upon reading this.
