Today I am thankful for....

Loving Parents

I feel very blessed to have loving parents.

They raised me to be the woman that I am. They taught me about Christ. They taught me to forgive. They taught me to love. They taught me to laugh. They taught me to believe in myself.

I am so lucky to have my Mom so close to me. I love our girl weekends together. My mom is such a comfort to me. She is one of my best friends. When ever we get together we ALWAYS laugh. We laugh so hard we get the weak feeling... wink! One of my favorite childhood memories with my mom was driving to Texas to live after graduation. My mom and I had a lot of time to talk and be silly. Then once we arrived to my sisters she took me shopping so that I could get new bedding and fun things for my room. It was such a special time to have her all to myself.

My Dad is BIG and he's BAD and he's my BIG, BAD DAD! I started saying that to him when I was a little girl and I still feel that way today. He has an amazing laugh and is one big kid. It is hard for him to be so far away. My sisters and brother are sure lucky to have him so close in Texas. One of my favorite childhood memories with my dad was flying with him in his airplane. I always loved going up with him. We would talk and often times he would let me fly the plane. It was always special time with him.
I am so grateful to have such good parents that taught me so much through out my life. They have loved me and been there for me when ever I have needed them and for that I am thankful!

Thank you for your beautiful comments. It has been a blessing to have you in my life and I look forward to our times together. However, sometimes I wonder how many department store security cameras have been trained on us simply because we were having so much fun shopping and laughing together. LOVE those weak feeling moments! Love you to the moon and back!
