My Parents

Describe your relationship with your parents.

Mom, Dad and I - Jack Astor's Dec, 2011

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have the best parents a girl could ask for. My parents are loving, supportive, encouraging, and fun.

For as long as I remember, I only have wonderful memories and thoughts of my parents. Family trips to the cottage or to my grandparents trailer, fun in the backyard on the swingset, slip n slide or later in our pool. They were always at school events and took an active role in the school council. They took the time to get to know our friends and their parents. They were fun and in turn, we had fun.

As a teenager/young adult - I loved spending time with my parents - not many people can say that. I enjoyed quiet time in the evenings with them, just sitting chatting...or heading out to stag and does and dancing the night away. Who can say they enjoy "partying" with their parents. The king and queen of the dancefloor everywhere we go - we always had a ball when we got to go to events with them. I still look forward to those fun times together.

Now, as a parent, I appreciate them even more. Being a parent is the hardest job in the world. I struggle every day thinking I am not being the best parent I can be - which makes me appreciate all they did for me and my sister - being the best parents they could be.

The next best thing about having you as my parents, is that my children get to have you as their grandparents!

Mom & Dad, I do not say it enough - but I appreciate and cherish you more than I can ever express. I love you!
