Month of thanks... week 2

This week I would like to thank my parents. I have such incredible parents. I know I have blogged about them in the past... but, I can't have a week of thanks without mentioning them!

I am very fortunate to have such thoughtful, loyal, loving, and patient parents. Looking back at all I had and all I got I was very lucky. My parents were children when they had Marty and I (Mom was 18, Dad was 21). We all grew up together as a very tight family. My parents taught Marty and I to love and take care of each other no matter what goes on in life. Marty is one of my closest friends to this day. Family is everything. That is the motto I live by and will raise my children to believe. No matter what happens in my life my family will always be there for me and my family I'm creating. At times (mainly as a teenager) I sometimes hated how close we were. I felt like I had NO privacy. My parents by design filled our home with love and laughter. We were the family that all the neighborhood kids went to. I would come from skating and have friends at my house hanging out with my parents until I got home. This is the home I wish to have.

I didn't realize how hard it would be having my parents move and live far from me. It has been VERY tough. It's not the easy road trip either. Selfishly I wish they still lived in La Mirada. Even though they love living in Boise, and I love that city... I wish we were all close and living in So Cal together again. My parents came into town when I had Jake. That was so helpful and I was thankful for their help. My mom still has it. She knew exactly what to do and gave me so many helpful tips. My mom and dad could have had a house full of children. I hope to become a mother like mine. I hope I can create the kind of home my parents had for my brother's and I.

Thank you mom and dad for giving me a wonderful childhood. I love you guys so much... And I can't wait to see you all for Christmas.

During there visit in September... I had just had Jake a week before this photo.
