The Best of Both Part 3
After graduation, I started college. I began plaicng value to the things I owned because I saw how my money was being spent. It hit home. All those years of watching my Moma and Daddy make due with what they had to give my brother and I everything started meaning so much more. Like I said here, how can you disrespect someone that gives you their all. In my opinion, they made it to where I wanted to follow their rules to honor them and all of the hard work they did to give me a home and a good life.
When you have parents that offer their full support and show you how much they love and adore you, it's hard not to show how much you respect them through words and through your actions. I was always trying to show them how much they meant to me whether it was through working hard at school with good grades, working around the house to make their work loads easier, or just hanging out with them.
In parts 1 and 2 of this little mini series, I explained the character traits of my Moma and Daddy and why they were so special. I hope it's as evident to you as it is to me how amazing they are. I honestly couldn't ask for better parents. Thanks to them, I have the desire to be there and provide for my family as they did for theirs. I believe whole heartedly that the primary reason I am the woman I am today is all because they spent the time to show me how to face life. How to work through problems. How to be fearful but brave. How to have faith in the Father. How to show those you love that you love them. And how to make family priority.
My Moma, the goofy gushy lady, and my Daddy, the stern hardworking puppy dog, gave me all they had. And this is for them. To let them know that my heart is full of their love and that they did a great job.
Why oh why did the Lord bless me with such wonderful, loving, caring, strong, and dependable parents? I consider myself to be very blessed.
I love you guys! More than you know.
