A letter to my parents….

Sep 4, 2014 | Family, Personal

Dear Mum and Dad

 

I am writing this because it’s not fathers day, mothers day, a birthday, or christmas

because I am not buttering you up to ask a favour and I haven’t crashed the car (recently)…

because you have done so much for us over the last few months – cat sitting, driving back and forth, baby sitting, swiss to uk plug swapping, building shelves, washing our clothes… and because you have actually been doing all of this for over 30 years…
because now I am a parent I ‘get it’ that bit more…
because a wise friend explained to me that every time you say ‘you should live closer to us’ or ‘you shouldn’t go away again’ it means ‘we love you’…
because I am good at taking the mickey or telling you when you do something wrong or uncool but not so good at saying ‘I love you and you are awesome’…
because I probably never told you that you are inspiring. I talk so highly of what you have achieved but probably have never told you that…
because you smile at my daughter as if she is the most magical gift anyone ever gave you…
because no number of flowers in the world can say this in the same way…
THANK YOU &  I LOVE YOU
