Blue Butterfly

Mom and Dad

Together we have...

      ...climbed that mountain: crossed that river, traversed that valley,
         and travelled that long and narrow road.

      ...experienced; the good and the bad, the right and the wrong, the
         beautiful and the not so beautiful.

Time and time again, you have...

       ...always, through the bad as well as the good, been there for me.
       ...stood patiently by me while I worked through what needed to be.

For over the years, reminding me... my life with purpose, dignity, and integrity; with right thinking and
          action; with right association and attitude.
       ...know that who I have become as a person is more important than what
          I have aquired or accomplished.
       ...speak my truth softley and clearly.
          I have aquired or accomplished.
       ...stand-up for I believe in and value.
      ...that one day I too would become a parent.

I am who I am today because of you. And I would like to take this moment, a heartfelt moment to thank you. And more importantly to say, "I love you."
