Today I am thankful for my parents. Both of my biological parents have now passed away.
My dad worked hard so Mama could stay home. We were not rich, but they provided everything I needed and much of what I wanted.
And they raised me in church. They were faithful to that calling and in turn, I grew to love God, the church and learning to be more Christlike.
I'm so thankful that my parents loved me enough to discipline me. Push me to be the best I could be. And encouraged me to make good decisions.
So today I'm thankful for my God-fearing, though not perfect, parents.
