My Relationship With My Parents
My relationship with my parents is pretty normal. No drama!
My parents are both kind, loving, good people and they will be celebrating 50 years of marriage in September. The have been great role models for the way marriages and family life should be like. They support and take care of one another. Their love for each other shines through in both their personalities.
From my dad I learned, hard work, good ethics, honesty, trust. He is loyal and true to his word. He works hard every day, sometimes too hard!
From my mom I learned, caring, love, selflessness. She has such a giving spirit and would do anything for her family!
The people I trust the most are my parents.
I have one of the most heartfelt relationships with them. They are the two people in my life that I know will always be there for me. Parents are the angels God gives us on this earth to help us go through life. My mother was told before I was born that she wouldn’t be able to have children because of the removal of one of her ovaries and the other ovary was very weak. So my parents had planned to adopt children. I was their miracle after 7 years of trying to have a baby. My mother has always told me the gifts I have are from God because I was sent by Him into her life. Little does she know she was the miracle I needed in my life and that is why God chose her to be my mother. I pray that one day I will be the woman that she is.
I find my strength because I have witnessed what she has done in her life and the strength my father has as the man that provides for his family. I have nothing but awe and amazement for my parents. I have seen them struggle financially when the oilfield was down and my father was laid off back in the 80’s. I have seen their faith rise up above the struggles of life, when they not only had to care for their 4 children but also for their 3 invalid parents. I saw them come together and solve problems together. They have never given up on each other or on me. As the oldest of 4 children, I learned what it was to be a team and to take care of one another. My parents are the most loving and giving people I know on this earth. I learned compassion and charity from them. I learned that we are blessed to give back to those that do not have much. My love for them is everlasting. Respect, Love, and Joy is what fills my heart when I think of them.
Enjoy the time you have with them because one day God will take his angels back home.
