For those of you who do not know me outside of the blogesphere, today is my birthday! I'm twenty-four years
Well, I may have gotten a little off track there. I just really love birthdays. The real reason for this post is to say thank you. I woke up this morning with a thankful heart. I have so much to be thankful for this season. But, what I am most thankful for today is my parents.
I am thankful for the gift of life. I am thankful to have an amazing mother who chose to give me life at sixteen. I am thankful to have a strong mother who always provided for me, no matter how hard. I am thankful to have a father that chose to be in my life. I am thankful to have parents who always push me to give my best. I am thankful to have parents who grounded me. (What a lesson it was to learn to be thankful for my parents grounding me! I wish I would have learned it a little sooner.) I am thankful to have parents who believe in me. I am thankful to have parents who want nothing more than for me to have a happy life.
I am truly blessed to have such amazing parents. Though, they think my love for birthdays at age 24 is outlandish, they still love me unconditionally. I am so incredibly thankful for the gift of life that my mom gave me twenty-four years ago!
