In honour of later today

10 05 2009

I have to say I am the woman I am today because of my parents. My mother raised me to listen, and provide for others when they are in need, and my father taught me the value of respect, humour, and punctuality.

Together, they have taught me the meaning of family. I don’t mean the “nobody gets left behind” schmoosh; that’s just Disney. I mean the love/hate relationship that is overwhelmingly lovely, loveable and infuriating.

Sometimes I forget who I am because of everything else that happens in my every day, and the re-realisation of my identity helps me live through another day when it is hard.

Thank you. Really. Thank you.
