The Reason I am Here

I love my Mom and Dad! This picture was taken a few years ago when they came to visit me when I was in college. Growing up I always knew that my parents loved me but I don't think I realized just how much they loved me until I became a parent myself:) Having Cole has given me a new appreciation for my parents. When he was a newborn and I thought I was going to go crazy from sleep deprivation I would always tell myself... "My parents did this for me and they survived, so I will too..." That is just one small way that I can now relate to my parents, but I've yet to go through all the ups and downs that come with raising toddlers and teenagers... There isn't anyone that I trust more than my parents and I am grateful for all the sacrifices that they have made over the years on my behalf.
