Yesterday was my parents 28th anniversary.'s a rare, beautiful thing in this day and age. I am so blessed to be able to call them my parents. But more then that, I'm blessed to call them my friends. We don't have a normal "parent/child" relationship. They are two of my best friends and..I'm gonna start crying. I trust them with my life. I value their opinions. I love laughing with them. They have given me so many words of wisdom that I could write a book. We have so many inside jokes that I'm smiling remembering them. And boy, I'm going to miss them so much. Thank God for technology. Phone calls and facebooking might be enough but it's going to be so hard.

All I can really say right now is thank you. It's because of them that I am the women I am today. It's because of their love for each other that I haven't settled for just any guy who's come along. It's because of their love for Grace and I that I have such a big heart (or big head?? hehe).

A million "Thank Yous" wouldn't be enough.

I love you.

I came over from your mom's blog. This is so sweet...brought tears to this mother and grandmother's eyes. I know you are so proud of them and them of you.

Really nice to see someone else with a good relationship with their parents. In this day and age, that can be so rare you almost feel guilty you don't have the family troubles your friends have.
