Thank You

This is not said enough. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank my parents, my wife's parents, and the parents of the vast majority of my family and friends. Thank you for raising us with a work ethic. Thank you for showing us the value of a dollar. Thank you for raising us with a sense of right and wrong. Thank you for giving us the building blocks needed to be successful adults. It would have been much easier to baby us and do everything for us. Easier to make sure there would not have been any bumps in the road, no consequences for our actions and decisions. But you did not. You let us get our bumps, pay for decisions, work for our money and material wants. Due to that we are the strong, well adjusted people you see now.

Thank you.

Word of the day...

Gratitude: a positive emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive.
