As time goes by and as I grow older I realise how important it is to live each day to the fullest and to remember the best of things and forget the things that have dragged you down. It is important to step forward but holding the best memories with the lessons of the bad. To know that you will get somewhere in life but to never forget the mistakes of the past.
I do not know how to feel knowing that my parents are not going to be around forever and that I will one day have to face the world on my own. Knowing that their guidance will not be around to be a helping hand breaks my heart. I will not hear my father’s wise advice and my mothers nagging. To know that I will not always have this safe haven that they have created for me and knowing that one day I will have to venture out into this crazy world on my own. It seems daunting and at times scary.
I will forever hold their life lessons in my heart and pray that one day I would be able to share it with my own children. I may not know the future but I sure hope that I can be at least half of the great parents my mother and father have been to me.
It has not always been the perfect marriage but then again who is perfect? I admire them for their hard work and their selflessness. For being able to stick through thick and thin and sticking to their vows. I love them for showing me that whoever that I may marry in the future can love me as much as I love him. I thank them for showing me that love exists. That no matter what you may you go through to talk it out. Shout it, scream it, yell it.. but never ever give up fighting for your love. Giving up shows defeat. Giving up shows that you no longer want to work things out. Communicate and love.
So thank you Mum and Dad
Thank you for your love.
Thank you for not giving up on each other.
Thank you for not giving up on me.
