There has not been a single day in my life when I had to wonder if Mom and Dad did not love us all with every bit of their hearts.
When I was young, I never thought about what wonderful parents I had. I just took for granted that all parents were like mine. They showed us every day how much they loved us and how much they loved each other. To this day, Mom and Dad still give each other kisses for no reason, hold hands when sitting together and are so comfortable letting the world see their love for each other.
It was not until I was in college that I met realized that my life was different from a lot of peoples'. When I met my first husband and he told me tales of his dad hitting his mom and him I could not believe it. Parents didn't do that to their kids! I learned that I was wrong and that a lot of parents did. And a lot of parents neglected their kids. It made me, and still makes me, so sad that not everyone could have parents like mine.
I thank God every day that he blessed my life so much by allowing me to be part of this family.
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! I love you!
