S: Ten Reasons I Love My Parents
FC: Who wouldn't love this?
1: This originally started as a yearbook project. I sat here for a while, thinking of what to do. Something cheesy? Something to get the job done? Then it occurred to me that both your birthdays, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and Father's Day are all coming up. And that gave me an idea. I know it's not Creative Memories shenanigans, but I hope you like it.
3: No matter how many times I screw up, no matter how bad, you always decide not to kick me out of the house. Thank you.
4: 2 | You always are proud of me. Even when I continue to make mistakes, I hear you both talking about me to friends and family and say how proud you are. Even if I'm not proud of myself, you can be proud for me. Thank you.
5: 3 | You leave me alone when I need to be left alone. If I have a bad day and run immediately to my room, you leave me alone, or maybe you don't notice. Either way, thank you.
6: 4 | You take the time to actually learn about me. Some parents let their kids go through life without actually trying to get to know them. And even though I'm not always willing to share, you keep pushing and pushing and trying to get me to share my life with you. Thank you.
7: To bring up a child in the way he should go, travel that way yourself once in a while. ~Josh Billings
9: It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself. ~Joyce Maynard | As I grow, you allow yourself to grow too.
10: 6 | No matter how weird I am acting, or how strange my actions are, you love me. It may be because I'm your child and you have to... but I still appreciate it.
12: 7 | You are the best parents that I know. You provide structure and love. Thank you, | “Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you.” - H. Jackson Brown
14: 8 | You complete me. If I am down, you bring me up. If I am stressed, you bring relief. You complete me. Thank you.
15: 9 | 9 | You make me feel beautiful. There's really no explanation to that. Thank you.
17: 10 | You
