30 Days of Thanks - Day 8

Today I am thankful for my parents.  Both of my biological parents have now passed away.
My mother died when I was 18 at the age of 55.  Daddy was around much longer...until he was 81 and died just a few years ago.

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.
