I couldn't figure out who to put first for days 8 and 9, so here's the combination. My parents.
My mom is a SAHM. She was always available when I came home from school and had a bad day. She drove me to piano lessons and recitals and band and choir rehearsals and Tae Kwon Do classes. Never missed a concert. Attended as many football games as she could. She was a "band parent." She was there for my black belt test. She was there when I was sick - for doctors appointments and all 5 of my surgeries. I don't know what I'd do without her. She's the most generous and amazing woman I know.
The only thing better than having them as my parents is C having them for his grandparents.
I am blessed!!
