To my two everlasting best friends,

Wow, where has time gone? Life seems to be flying by as if yesterday I were a little girl; however, now I have one more year and my life begins without you guys being by my side.  When I was little, I never realized why people always said to treat your parents with love no matter what but now I do. As I grow up, I realize that sometimes I get going too fast and take the things you two do for me for granted. I never get the chance to tell you guys how much I love and appreciate you both. I cannot thank you both enough for all the times you have gone out of your guys’ way just to make me happy. Mom and Dad, I wouldn’t be who I am today without either of you. I know sometimes we argue and certain things don’t always go as planned, but I’ll never stop loving you both unconditionally. I know I don’t always tell you how much you mean to  me but now I am. This one’s for you Mom and Dad.

Dad, ever since I was little, you have pushed me to be the best I can be in everything I do and I have never been more thankful. Throughout the years of growing up, you have showed me that honesty is a key factor in life and it has gotten me through some of the roughest times so thank you. Thank you for being my #1 fan since I was a little girl. Thank you for coaching me in all my sports and through life. Most of all, thank you for being the one guy that I know I can always count on. Dad, I know it seems as if I don’t always want to ‘spend time with you’ at home because I lock myself in my room but that’s not the case at all. I cherish all the moments we share together and I will cherish the memories that are to come. As I’m starting to grow up and think about my life after high school, it makes me realize that one day I’m not going to be able to just walk downstairs and watch Big Bang Theory with you or be your caddy for the day while you golf; however, I know no matter where life takes me, you’ll only be a call or text away. “I love you with all my heart,” Dad. You have impacted my life in so many ways and I’ll never be able to thank you enough. You are the one person I know who will always tell me the truth no matter if it may hurt and for that I will forever be grateful. Don’t ever change for anyone. You’re an incredible human being and I’m so thankful I get to call you my dad.

Mom, I don’t even know where to begin. You’re my best friend and no words can describe how thankful I am for you. Growing up was never easy when it came to boy/girl drama, but you managed to lift the weight off my shoulders and help me see the silver lining in it all. You have always been the one person I know I can tell anything and you won’t judge me at all. I cannot count the endless times you have helped me push through a heartbreak when all I wanted to do was give up. Mom, I know sometimes I push you away and I get an attitude when  things don’t go my way, but I love you more than you’ll ever know. I’m sorry that I don’t always say thank you, but thank you for everything. Thank you for putting up with me on my bad days. Thank you for always making me smile when all I want to do is frown. Thank you for never leaving my side through thick and thin. Most of all, thank you for being who you are. You are the most beautiful, independent woman I know and anyone is lucky to meet you. I will never be able to pay you back for all the clothes you have bought me, the endless times I have dyed my hair, or the amount of food you’ve bought me when we were in town. One day I will look back on our memories and smile because you have taught me that life is better when you are who you are meant to be and not what others want you to be. Mom, as I grow up I start to comprehend that we won’t always have our jam sessions in our car; however, I know that wherever I may end up, you’ll always be a facetime away. I love you most, Mom.

I know that these paragraphs I wrote for each of you won’t do justice for all the things you guys have done for me, but I just wanted to tell you what you two mean to me. Not only are you my Mom and Dad, but you both are my role models that I look up to each and every day. Thank you for guiding me down the path I belong on. Thank you for showing me that life may change, but you two will always be there for me. I know I am a brat sometimes; however,  I really do cherish all the miraculous things you both do for me. As I sit here crying while writing this letter, I can’t help but thank God for blessing me with you two as my parents. Without you two, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Not enough words in the world can express how thankful I am for the both of you, but this is a good start. Here’s to you Mom and Dad.

 

Love always,

Your Stubborn Daughter
