Thank you

Sometimes I don't believe I say thank you enough. I strive to instill manners in my oldest child, but then I think, do I say 'thank you' everytime it is necessary? Maybe to the naked eye I do, but probably not when it most matters.
To Mom and Dan, Thank you! Thank you for raising me to be the person I have become. It is so funny for me to think back at my childhood and remember when it was just the 3 of us. The days when we had cheese toast and curly fries for dinner:) The days of playing tennis together, late nights of homework, Dan and me that is, driving mom nuts with our bickering;) I remember eating at Tamolley's together the very 1st day it opened, and Red Lobster too. It is so funny how life changes so and where we all end up. As my parents you 2 have always supported me to the very end. I have always been loved more than I could ever imagine. People have come in and out of this home and you guys always welcomed them, no matter what. When we moved to Colorado I saw heartbreak like I could have never imagined. I never knew a mom could cry so much. Even after leaving and me experiencing so much pain, you encouraged me to stay and experience life on my own. That I did, and although tough, I am more than grateful. That alone shows just how much you love me. Over the past 5 1/2 years you guys have been there for me/us. And I mean that. I can't even come up with the words to say to describe how overwhelmingly grateful I feel to have my parents home to come home to while we deal with a tough time. I really don't know what I would do if I didn't have that. I feel security, support and complete unconditional love from you two and I could not be more grateful. You guys love my girls more than I will ever know. That alone means the world to me. You love my husband and support him. You are proud of him and our family we have created and I am grateful for that. So even if you never read this blog, please know I love you both. Thank you!
