My dad? My dad and I had a very odd relationship. We loved each other fiercely of course, but we also had a talent for driving one another absolutely crazy. He was extremely conservative; where I am very liberal. I basically grew up trying to drive him crazy with my wild and crazy ways! I blame the generation differences, it is obvious my dad is MUCH older than my mom is. He was a good man, he was a good father, and I miss him a lot. Thankfully after much pain and suffering, he is now in a better place.
My mom? Oh, my mom. The dazzling woman who gave me my life's blood...and my attitude problem. My mom also can drive me crazy, but only in the sense that I am basically a 24 year old version of her. We are SO similar it is kind of freaky. Do we have our differences? Yes. But, she is my hero. She is my best friend. She is the best mother on the planet. She inspires me on a daily basis, and she has taught me how to be a strong independent woman. There are so many things I could thank her for. She is my heart. Forever & always.
