I'm thankful for my parents

I have a lot to be thankful for. I have to say family tops the list.  And to be over 50 and have both my parents makes me really lucky.  I'm grateful for each day I have my mom and dad.

I'm grateful they are still married to each other. I'm grateful they taught me love, the value of hard work and took me to church. 

I'm lucky enough that life worked out that I raised my family right here where I was born and get to see my parents often.  Almost every Sunday we have lunch together and then a few other times a year.  

The photo is from May 25, 2014. They celebrated 50 years of marriage that day. And I love that my mom still cooks and that my dad often carries my mom's purse around when they are out together. He still opens her car door every time too.  They always and continue to set the bar high for their family.

It looks like you had great parents and you really can't ask for much else in this life and the basics

Your parents look great and I know they raised one heck of a gal.  Was that picture really taken in 1014?  I didn't realize color photography was around way back then!  Haha, I know it was likely just a typo, I like to laugh though, so I hope you aren't offended by me saying something about it.

Tammy, I think we have a lot in common with our parents.  Same lessons taught, both past their 50 year anniversary points and still going strong!  Bill

Parents are our first role models and it sounds like you have great role models and the love of family.

Brian England nice catch LOL  Umm, no.   I guess spell check doesn't solve everything now does it.  And people rarely believe my parents are in their 70s

Laura Cerrano I believe being a parent is the most challenging yet the most rewarding job on earth.

Gita Bantwal certainly some uplifting posts to read.

Happy Thanksgiving back to you Patricia Feager , I feel very blessed to have realized while I still have them both what great parents they are. I try to say thank you and see them often. Recently had a couple of nice shopping days with my mom.
