In recent moments I have thought of my parents. Other events occurring in my life have given me the insight that I was truly blessed by the parents I had. I told them that I appreciated them while they were alive.
I have a great deal of empathy and compassion for those not as fortunate. Life can be tough when you have good parents. For those who live in broken homes or foster homes, my heart goes out to them. The challenges they face, perhaps not knowing their parents, or not having their parents.
I just simply felt that even though my parents are deceased, I wanted to thank them for the memories they created for me and my life. I am deeply thankful and grateful.
