30 days of thankfulness days 3 & 4

Day 3: today I am thankful for my mother. She may not have had the best experience at being a mother but she did her best with what we had. There was 6 of us kids so we weren't spoiled by all means. My mom worked two jobs do bus kids would have 3 meals. She has taught me how to not be selfish in life SBD enjoy what you have. Even though we live miles away we talk daily. I just wish we could see her a little more than we do. I love you mom. Thank you for doing ALL you could do for me.

Day 4: today I am thankful for my dad. He doesn't have very good health right now but I'm thankful he is alive. Even though we don't have the father daughter bond that I wish we did he is still my father. He was a big alcoholic when we were growing up so there's some hatred there. He did stop drinking years ago and I'm forever greatful that he did because we lived a horrible nightmare with him when he drank. I wish I would've given him more of a chance but I didn't. We live miles and miles away (he is in Florida and I'm in Indiana) he is still my dad. I love you dad. Thank you dad for making me realize the type of man i want in my life. I chose a great daddy for your granddaughter. Thank you for giving up your bad habits. I pray everyday for your health. Safe travels to you for your holiday travels coming home. Your granddaughter and I can't wait to see you! I love you!
