Day 4: Your Parents

My parents are pretty awesome.  I mean, they raised one especially awesome daughter, right?

Seriously, I do have awesome parents.  They both worked very hard when my brother and I were growing up to make sure we had what we needed, a lot of stuff we didn't need, and they were always there.

My mom.  Roxanne.  My best friend friend.  Giving and loving.  I've always looked up to her.  She'll be 50 this year and I can't wait to celebrate with her.  After I became an adult, we still have our mother and daughter relationship, but now she's a close confidante as well.  She is a wonderful, talented woman and she is a great mother, sister, wife, grandmother, etc., etc. etc.  I hope I can be like her when I grow up!

My Dad.  My hero.  I wasn't really Daddy's Little Girl growing up.  I have a lot of my personality from my dad so we clashed a lot.  Especially my teen years.  That was rough.  He's caring and giving.  We have a great relationship now.  It started right after my parents' divorce and has gotten a lot stronger.  We talk often and usually manage to see each other at least once a month. 

My parents divorced when I was 20 years old.  They had been married for almost 22 years.  It was a hard season in my life.  I know divorce is hard on you when you are a kid, but it doesn't get any easier when you are older.  I mean, you have an even better idea of what's going on when you are older.  Anyway, I love both of my parents so much and know that I wouldn't be half the person I am today without them for parents.  Mom and Dad, you rock!
