Thankful for Parents

I’m going to keep this short and sweet tonight because it’s been a long, good day. I got to spend quality time with both of my parents today. Living 10 hours away, every minute with them is precious.

I have been reminded today of how lucky I am to still have both of them around. It is a gift to be able to be here with them.

So, I am thankful for both my mother and my father. I am thankful that they gave me life, that they love me, and that we can still spend some time together.

How about you? If your parents are still alive, are you able to spend time with them? If they are no longer living, how do you honor and preserve their memories?

  1. Is that photo from today? Looks good.

    • No, that particular photo is just over a year old. Doris took it when she was down here in Chattanooga and the four of us were out to dinner. About the only thing that has changed is the length of my hair — and that may change again today.

  2. Thankful also for every minute spent with my precious daughter and also my youngest granddaughter! Time given is also a precious gift!
