Im grateful for great parents.
My parents are the best! I have a rough time thinking of anything negative when I think of my childhood. I worry my kids are gonna remember all the bad and none of the good - thats why I try to have alot of parties and chick flick time. I wish they lived closer to me and my family, but I am grateful we do try to get together alot. My mom is an example to me of how to take care of a new mother. She was great "new mom" caregiver. My dad always takes care of the honey do list when he stays at my house. So I can be guaranteed that twice a year a couple of things will get fixed around here. I appreciate that so much, even though he "rigs" it. (family, you know what I mean)
Like Ruth, I am blessed to have a righteous example for a mother in law. She is always serving and would do anything to make me and my family happy. That is where Bill gets it from, well, her and her sweet husband Willard.
I asked Brennon to call us mom and dad because I regret not calling them Mom and Dad earlier and now it just comes out "Grandma and Grandpa" when I really do feel a love for them like they are my second mom and dad. They have always made me feel like I fit right in the family, even when I am laying around on the couch and they are all doing project. I love them and am grateful to have them in my life.
