This letter may come as random, but I was talking to my father the other day and he was reminding me how blessed I am to have both parents in my life, working, in good health, and always having a roof over my head. Most people want to express their gratitude toward their parents on Thanksgiving, birthdays, or sometimes Mother and Father's day, but anytime is perfect to me.
Dear Mother and Father,
Thank you. Thank you both for all that you have done. Not just for me, but for Mike and Kiara. Thank you both for always believing in us and letting us grow up and experiencing life on our own. You both have been the biggest support system any child could hope to have, and for that I am forever grateful.
Because of you two, I have a better understanding that marriage is not easy, but putting in the effort, time, is really all that matters. I am so proud to say that my parents have been married for almost 27 years. Many of my friends cannot say that about their parents, and in today's word, marriage is almost extinct; but that is a goal I hope to achieve.
Even though sometimes I get annoyed about you all always constantly checking on me or always wanting to know my business, I now realize that you two were the only ones that cared for well-being and safety, and I wouldn't trade that for anything in the world.
Parents are truly the greatest gift a child could ask for. And as the youngest child, I am so so thankful and blessed to have both of you in my life. You both have taught me numerous lessons and have given unconditional, inspiring love.
I hope that when I have my own kids, I can raise them in the type of household you two have raised me in.
A Grateful Child
