November 29~ My parents
I had an extremely challenging upbringing. You could even say that parts of it were pretty traumatic. I could easily point fingers and be a victim of my past. But through my own process of growing and healing, I have chosen to be thankful for my parents for all that they did do for me, rather than focus on what they didn't. They gave me life. They provided a roof over my head and food on the table. They inadvertently taught me a LOT. I know that they love(d) me, even though they may not have read the manual on parenting. (We all get one of those, right?!) ;) Somehow, regardless of how they did things, I am who I am because of them.
