Dear Mom and Dad,

Thank you,

For the piano, violin and voice lessons.
The braces.
Buying me those horrible choir dresses and telling me I looked beautiful.
Letting me use your embroidery floss for friendship bracelets.
Tutoring me in math when it probably wasn't fun for you either.
For teaching me how to be kind and how to love myself.

I never realized that you, as parents were and probably are still proud of me - as I am of my girls.

For what it's worth, I'm proud of you too.

I love you.

Thanks Cara...just now catching up on your posts...you do a great job expressing yourself. We think of you and all the work you have to do to care for the girls, home, work, husband, etc. We know what you are putting up with with each pile of laundry and untimely childhood demand. I was thinking the other day that I needed to make sure I was enjoying the stage of life I'm having right now. Other things like retirement will come someday...but for now I'm busy with work and stuff around the house. Thanks again for taking the time to have a travel adventure coming all the way back to Kansas for a vacation.

love you
