i've always been very close to my parents and i'm so grateful for that.
growing up, my parents were always very involved in everything i did.
my dad coached my softball team, they went to all of my games, and they supported me in
anything that i wanted to do.
they pushed me to do my best in everything and encouraged me when i didn't do well.
they expected me to never do things half way, but because of that, i learned how to work hard.
my parents were always involved in youth group activities, which at the time, i hated. but now i appreciate it.
my parents raised me in a christian home and they lived out their beliefs everyday.
i learned what a loving and Godly marriage looks like from my parents.
they showed me how to love in good times and adversity.
my parents have been very supportive of jarred and i from the time we were datin
g and still now as we are raising our own children.
i know that when i was young, i completely took my parents for granted, but as i get older, i find myself leaning and relying on them more than ever.
i think they are exceptional examples of how to love each other and how to parent.
i don't know what happened to my brother though...
i love you mom and dad!
