I thank my mother for giving birth to me,
I thank my father for making that birth possible.
I thank them both for giving me the opportunity to live, to learn, to love, and to be loved.
My mother is the strength within me in order to move ahead in life.
I thank her for the confidence she has given me in becoming an independent woman.
She has always shown me the true meaning of a woman’s worth.
Because of her, I never feel the need to keep my head down.
My father is the glue that holds me together day in and day out.
I thank him for showing me the qualities that I one day hope to find in my husband.
He has always supported me and understood me, not only as his daughter, but as a person.
Because of him, I have never felt alone.
I thank my parents for all of the sacrifices that they have made for me in the past.
I thank them for the sacrifices that they continue to make for me still today.
And I thank them for all that they are doing in order to build a brighter tomorrow for me.
I thank you Mom for being a strong female influence on my life.
I thank you Dad for standing by my side constantly.
I thank you both for being my parents.
And my love is unconditional.
