Happy Father’s Day darlings! I thought I would share some awesome pictures of my father and family today.
I’m so beyond grateful to be handed the deck of cards that placed me in such a loving home. I have two lovely parents who taught me morals of working hard, being honest, and being respectful. My parents are my biggest cheerleaders. They are some of the best people on the planet and I truly believe that. My parents are the most hardworking people I have ever met and they seem to find the joy in everything.
My family isn’t a big Mother’s/Father’s Day celebrating family. To us these days are just an extra reminder to tell your parents how much you love them, explain how grateful you are that they accept you for who you are, and say thank you for all the years they cheered you on. Thank you, Dad. You gave me the courage to go abroad in the fall. You took me to Europe senior year and helped me develop a love for traveling. You’ve constantly cheered me on even when I changed my major not two but three times. You encouraged and help me write my book senior year. You helped me become who I am today. You’ve always been there for me whether I need a pep talk, a tissue, or just someone to talk to.
Since I didn’t make a Sunday Snapshot post on mother’s day, I thought I’d say thank you to my Mom as well. My mom taught me that it’s okay to eat Oreos at any given time of the day. She taught me how important exercise is and getting up and moving. She has spend hours with me trying on clothes and her doing the same thing. She has taught me to stand up for something that I believe in. That if something isn’t fair I should stick up for myself and others.
Both of my parents have always been there for me and my brothers. We are very lucky. They have taught us to be proud of who we are, to have a strong backbones, and to work hard for what we want. Most importantly they have taught us love. Something that I know many kids miss out on. I am so fortunate to have parents that love each other each and every day.
Like I said before, I am so lucky to have been dealt this deck of cards.
Thank you for being who you are.
I love you, Mom and Dad.
Tell your parents that you love them.
