Parents make us who we are today.

Parents play an integral role in our lives. Without them we would not exist. Not all parents are equal. Some are great and some are barely there. Sometimes parents exist in people who are not our biological parents. The can be adoptive, aunts/uncles, grandparents, siblings, or friends. Our parents help shape our lives. They provide love, support, and a sense of belonging. For parents who are not around much, they create a drive to make us aim to be there for our kids. For parents who are there too much, it creates the opposite aim to be a parent who is less controlling. No matter what, our parents have shaped us into who we are today. We need to remember to honor our parents every day, whether they are biological, adoptive, or pseudo. For those parents that are no longer with us, we need to remember “He lives in you…” – Disney’s The Lion King. Today say thank you to the people you are proud to call your parents.
