My understanding of a parent has really changed over the past two years as I have become the mother of two boys. The dedication, unconditional love, and selflessness it takes to be a parent continues to surprise me daily. How is it that my own parents made it look so easy? When it most definitely is not. Even still they swoop in to love and support not only me but now my husband and sons as well. I feel these pictures tell the story better than I can write:
So Happy Birthday dad. Thank you for loving me through everything. Thank you for being willing to offer help, give advice, provide reassurance and even buy doughnuts with chocolate milk. I love you.
