Card #15...... "our parents"

So i have heard lots say that they love a certain promp.... I love this one! Lets face it if It had not been for our parents none of us would be where we are today... They have made us who we are... they have given us our wings... This came at a really good time for me, my mom and dad have just retired and packed up and moved about an hour south of us! I have to say that my emotions are mixed... I am so happy for them and for a start of their new life, they have both worked hard to get where they are today, i know that i will miss them though and that for the past 18 or so years they have only been 5 or ten minutes away. i know too that we will still see them lots but i don't think we realize how much we will miss something until it isn't there anymore... Thankfully they are only an hour away and if nothing else i know our visits will mean so much more...

Thanks Mom and Dad for all the memories, for always being there and for being the great people you are today, For that i am grateful!

Beautiful card Lynn, I think it's my favorite one so far. I believe that you can tell what kind of parents a person has had by their own beliefs and actions. Your's can feel very proud of themselves because you are such a kind and wonderful person.

beautiful card Lynn -

I put you on my list of people I would like to tag for I would love to get to know you better and have you stop by my blog once in awhile.

Plus I really do love to read what people write about themselves - so interesting.

How you feel about your parents I have felt about my sisters moving away - I so miss them all the time and wish we were all living closer, ah well just gives all more experiences and places to share with each other!

Take care :-)
