DEAR DAD, DEAR MOM

Dad & Mom
How often do I go through my day forgetting how blessed I am to have you in my life.
How many times have I forgot to tell you how much I love you! 
How frequently do I get caught up with myself and miss the opportunities 
to appreciate all the things you selflessly do for me.
I was thinking recently about how precious life is. So often I am caught up in the normalcy of sharing life with others that their presence is often overlooked. The value of sharing life with others is really precious. The ability to learn, to grow and to glean wisdom from from those around you. You both have been such an amazing support and encouragement to me. I want you to know that your examples as parents has taught me so much. I have seen you guys grow and endure through your own challenges. Even through the tough times, your example has taught me important lessons and life truths.
I am so grateful for to have parent like you!

I am sorry for all the times I took you for granted, and for the times I will do so in the future.
I have made mistakes yet you love me unconditionally. How blessed am I. 
 I think back to the times when I was so down and you stood by me and pushed me on.

Thank you for constantly being the cheerleaders through my life. 
Thank you for teaching me about God and how to live your life to honor him. 
Thank you for the late night conversations.
Thank you for the shoulder to cry on.
Thank you for the uncontrollable laughter that spills out our eyes.
Dad & Mom
Thank you for being my parents.
I love you.

Meet two of the most influential people in my life!
