Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday to you!
Today, I am thankful for these awesome people....

My parents.
God continues to show me how much of a blessing and
 gift they are in my life.

I am so thankful that I have a dad who will 
make time in his busy schedule, while visiting,
to change the oil in my car,
replace my old tires, and then top off my gas tank.
All before church on Sunday morning.
For a dad who sends me text messages that just say, "love you more".

I am thankful for a mom who will make extra food when I'm at home
just so she can send it back with me.
Who always makes sure I never go hungry.
A mom who will spend an afternoon taking me fabric shopping
and help me reupholster my dinning chairs.

Thank you God,
that I have parents who would do anything for me.
Who deeply love me.
Who disciplined me when it was necessary 
and gently cared for me when I was fragile.
Who established a household whose sole purpose is to serve the Lord.
Who pray for me and with me, even before I arrived into this world.
Who support me in all I do.
Who are patient with me when I am learning lessons in life.
Who set such a wonderful example of a Godly marriage.

Ok, honestly the list could go on and on.
God has blessed me with such wonderful parents.
There are no other parents in this world 
who would be better for me than they are.
God uniquely created us for each other.
I am so thankful for them and for our relationship.
I can't wait for how it will continue to grow as time goes on.

Thank you God,
for fan-flippin-tastic parents who mean the world to me.
