So Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I am kind of introducing the topic of thanks a bit early this year but I really could not hold this blog up anymore. Today I am going to talk about thanks and parents. So first I cannot say how much my parents mean to me. They do so much for me that makes me so thankful. Parents make every decision for you and us kids do not realize that today. When I think about the parents I have it makes me think “WOW”! What did I do to deserve them? In the larger scheme of things, I would not be me if it were not for my parents. My personality, my opinions, my likes, my everything would me nothing if it weren’t for the way my parents are raising me and the values they are teaching me.
My parents do so much for me. Every day they go out of their way to do something for me whether it’s getting school supplies, Starbucks, or my favorite dinner. They do so many things to make my life beautiful and what do they get? Nothing. Today I realized I have never stopped to say Thank You, so here it is. This is my thanks to you for everything you do for me. It would be so easy for you guys to just say no to all the bizarre things I ask for, and you do when it’s appropriate so I can learn the value of money, but you guys do these things for me to make every day exciting. I know I ALWAYS say I take my parents for granted but it is the honest truth. Another epiphany I had about this is that, yes, I take my parents for granted, but since I realized that why don’t I stop? So, mom, dad, that is what I am going to do my absolute best to do from now on! I am going to make positive, that I treat you guys with all the respect you deserve because although I may not like it, (REALLY NOT LIKE IT) you do it for a reason that I may never see or know.
Every single decision my parents make is for me in some way. It can be what color sweater they are getting for me or what job they are going to do for every day of their lives. Every time I think about the love I get it wows me. You always hear these stories about kids getting mistreated or neglected but…… you never really realize what it means to have parents that don’t care. If I just imagine being in the shoes of one of those kids it makes me think about how lucky I am. Just the fact that I have parents that give me a hug and kiss every night, or the fact that they put amazing dinner (especially tonight’s ☺ ) on my plate. My parents only think about me and put me before themselves. This is something that can never be replaced. I hope I can be that type of parent to my kid someday. I know I will never know what my parents actually go through until I have kids for my own. One things for sure, though. The love my parents for have for me is something that is out of this world. Something that words cannot describe. Something that is more than beauty can handle.
You know how all teenager go through that everything I say I right stage. Well slowly and slowly I can start to tell that I am starting to do that. I just want to say a disclaimer right now to my parents: “EVERYTHING I SAY IS NOT RIGHT AND I KNOW THAT AND JUST DON’T ACKNOWLEDGE THAT”! In fact everything you guys say is right. Isn’t it ironic that when you guys give me a warning about something but I do it anyway it never turns out right? Hilarious right. (Totally a coincidence) No JK! I, for some strange reason, I always end up learning the hard way. Well I guess that learning the hard way will actually teach me a lesson but I’m gonna try to make life easier for myself and just follow everything you guys say. Let’s see how that turns out!
I think that covers it all for this blog. I just want to say to my parents how I love them. I know I don’t say thank you and think that it is my privilege to have everything you guys give me, but I know it is not. I greatly respect you and know that you know best, even though I act like I do. If I knew best God would not have put parents in this world. I love you so much and that will never change no matter how old I get or how much I don’t listen to what you guys tell me, or how much I loose stuff. I know that I can always remember MADWALM which is not a word, but means Mom And Dad Will Always Love Me.
