"30 Days of Me- Day 24"

30 Days Of Me!

Day 24: A letter to your parents

Since my parents have been divorced for as long as I can remember. I am going to go in a different direction and write one to each...

It was just you and me for so long. Who knew that you were teaching me how to be a not only an amazing mom but how to do it with out help. You were always there, every dance recital, football & soccer game. Every school program. You worked full time. But I still had & attended slumber parties. You never showed how tired you must have been. I was a busy busy busy kid & you had a very demanding job, but you did not let that get in the way. You taught me how important family is. Then you married a wonderful man who, even though I was 17, has been like a dad to me. You two have supported every decision I have ever made, even if you didn't agree with them. You always found and still find ways to teach me life lessons, I will never be too old to learn from you & Tom. You two always made/make me feel loved, even when we were fighting. We fight, but its because we are so much alike. If I can do 1/2 as good a job raising my daughter I will be pleased. Thank you for always believing in me, thats the best gift ever. and Thank you for being wonderful loving and caring (& helpful) nana & papa! Thank you for all you have done & continue to do.
I love you.

You are quiet. You always have been, but you too were there for all my recitals and soccer games. You just never had a lot to say. I def. got moms personality. You made sure that I got my homework done & that I understood it. I always went to church on Wednesdays then came home and watched TV with you. That was OUR time, thats when we bonded. You never from what I can remember stood me up, you had me every other weekend & every wednesday and you stuck to it. You made sure I was included in family events, even if I was at moms you came and got me, b/c family is important. We always did something special on your weekends, something fun. I have very fond childhood memories from my time with you. Thank you for not being a deadbeat like so many of my friends fathers are/were. I am just sorry that as I got older, around the time I could drive, our relationship was not as close anymore. But you still never missed a game or recital. You have not always liked the decisions I have made & I know that but  you have tried to be supportive. As I get older and I mature I hope that I make few mistakes and less decisions you frown upon. I hope one day we can work on becoming closer again. Thank you for being such a wonderful "peepaw". Thank you for all you have done.
I love you.


Keep up in between posts, I Tweet , A lot.
