Mom & Dad


Happy 21st Anniversary to my unbelievably beautiful, exemplary parents! I love you both more than I can say. Thank you for making our family strong. Thank you for having your priorities in the right order. Thank you for teaching us to avoid evil and love good. Thank you for always steering us to truth, even when it's not what made sense at the moment. Thank you for buying me books, music, books, more music, more books.... Thank you for being silly, and laughing until there are no laughs left. Thank you for making it obvious that you love each other. Thank you for communicating. Thank you for showing us every. single. day. what it is to work hard and persevere and stay diligent till the day is done, and then get up and do it all again. Thank you for homeschooling us. Thank you for always wanting to be with us instead of having "alone time." Thank you for spending time with each one of us individually. Thank you for preparing us for the future. Thank you for instilling in us the desire to be generous whenever God has blessed. Thank you, truly, for being the best parents in the world. I love you.
