I wrote this post last year for my parents anniversary – which is today.
Today I was thinking about something important my parents taught me that I often mention to other people – that you can grow up and overcome your upbringing. I often think about that when I meet people who are struggling to undo the damage that their parents have done to them. My parents both grew up in poor families with… let’s just say interesting parents. They’ve often said that when you grow up you get to choose your own family – I’m grateful that I have nothing to overcome from my upbringing and my choosing my new family isn’t a result of wanting to leave my other one behind.
Another interesting tidbit – someone else inherited those ears and I love it!
Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad!
