I don’t tell you enough how much I appreciate you goofballs.
Dad, you Facebook message me cat videos and insane political stories every day, and I LOVE it. You keep me current.
Mom, I live off of the pins you send me via Pinterest, and your random Snapchats because you haven’t quite figured out how to use this simplest of social media platforms cracks me up every time.
Dad, I can’t keep up with all the networking connections you send my way! And when I reflect back on the amazing opportunities God has blessed me with, it started with your ridiculous boldness to meet anyone and everyone and proceed to tell them about your writer/actress/singer/lawyer/doctor/journalist/astrophysicist daughter (by the way, I’m none of these things!).
Mom, it blows my mind how two souls can be so similar and understand one another and even sync missing each other at the same time from 2,000 miles away. You gave me this travel bug, though, so it’s really your fault.:P Truth is, sometimes I just crave a Mom hug. I live for our dance sesh’s in the kitchen to “You’re So Beautiful”.
Watching you two as I’ve grown has deepened my faith and resolve to live my life with purpose. You have modeled a marriage founded on Christ for 28 years for me and those around you. That is an absolutely priceless gift you’ve given to the world.
Thank you for loving and living so well. I appreciate you, Bob and Patti, your hearts, your quirks, your Netflix binges that rival any college student, and your walks with Christ.
Oh, and happy belated Anniversary, you lovebirds, you.

p.s. take the time right now to write a letter to someone you appreciate.
