Today I am thankful for our parents. They helped shape us into who we are. They helped show us right from wrong. They let us stumble and find our own way at times. They supported us when we moved 6 hours away while pregnant with their first grandchild. They were “on-call” and still 6 hours away while I was pregnant with their second grandchild. And again they were “on-call” though a little closer at only 2 hours away when I was pregnant with our third child.
They have helped us paint. Helped us clean. Helped us move. Helped us build furniture.
They have cooked for us. Done laundry for us. Vacuumed for us. Cleaned bathrooms for us.
They really are an amazing group of people. And even thought we don’t live in the same city, I don’t know what we’d do without their support.
