Dear Mom and Dad,
I know I don't say it often, but thank you. Every day I watch someone close to me go through a rough time with their family and it only makes me appreciate you two more.
Thank you for supporting me
Whether it's supporting me through college or through a tough time, you're always there for me. You guys always know what to say to make me feel better and you're always on my side. You also give the best hugs.
Thank you for being my shoulder to cry on
Sometimes life just doesn't go our way, so when it does, thank you for letting me cry on your shoulder.
Thank you for teaching me how to stick up for myself
While also doing it in a respectful way.
Thank you for teaching me that honesty is the best policy
Because no one likes a liar.
Thank you for putting food on the table
Nothing ever tastes as good as Mom's homecooked meal, especially every night of the week!
Thank you for working harder than ever
Getting up at 6 am isn't easy to begin with but to do it five days a week takes a real trooper. So thank you for waking up early every day, going to work for 8 hours a day and then coming home to take care of the house.
Thank you for sacrificing everything for me
Whether it's something as simple as the last chicken cutlet, or something even bigger, you two are always willing to put Bella and me first.
Thank you for pushing me to be the best I can be
You always taught me that whatever I can go, I can do to my full potential.
Thank you for keeping the fridge full
This is super helpful since I'm always hungry, so thank you for keeping the closet and fridge filled with delicious snacks.
Thank you for taking care of the house
While working a full-time job, taking care of a house and pets doesn't seem easy, so thank you for doing it. (And making it look easy)
Thank you for loving me unconditionally
Finally, thank you for loving me. Thank you for loving me through all of the ups and downs through life, for every single one of my flaws and for loving me unconditionally. I would not be anywhere close to where I am today without you.
