"to bring up a child in the way he should go, travel that way yourself once in a while"

(Title quote by Josh Billings.)

My parents are amazing! I want to dedicate this post to them. My dad is my strong, thoughtful, outgoing, big hearted, super funny, handy hero. My mother is my sweet, humble, hilarious, submissive, organized, intelligent hero. They compliment each other more perfectly than sunflowers and sunshine. They love with an impressive and longlasting love. They have been through it all and more together and still take the time to bring each other coffee and make out in the shoe closet!

My dad taught me what is means to love family. He taught me how to love a daughter and show her God's worth. He has told me that I am worth fighting for and has acted on that. He has told me that I was worth waiting for, and forgave me and loved me when I acted outside of that.

My mom has taught me how to be a wife. She has taught me the importance of being a quick learner. She has showed me how to pray and wait patiently. She has loved me despite the countless hurts I have inflicted. She has been a listening ear when I have needed it most.

Thanks, daddy and mumshy! I will always be your bunny, your lizbeth, your hank bumpster, your baby girl.
