You made me the man I've always wanted to be

You made me the man ive always wanted to be

Dear Mom & Dad,

Thank you Dad for marrying a good wife who became mother and special thanks to you, Mom, for not feigning headache or tiredness the day or night you and Papa made me.

I can’t repay the lessons that you taught me when I was small nor give you gifts for the daily treasures I recall. I can’t return encouragement and loving words of praise in quite the way you did for me through all my childhood days. But there is one gift that I can give; it’s all the love you’ve earned – For love is what you always taught and love is what I learned.

Thank you for always being there and knowing just what to do and the right words to say when I’m feeling way beyond blue. Thank you for patiently listening to all my worries and stresses and for caring enough to get me out of all my messes. Thank you for being just a phone call away and your door always being open to me. Thank you for being my constant support when I didn’t think I could cope.

I wasn’t raised in a mansion or fed with a silver spoon. I wasn’t brought up to think money is everything. I wasn’t raised to live out your dreams but to proudly dream my own. I wasn’t raised to walk the popular path but to strongly pave my own. I wasn’t raised with material things but something great indeed – I was raised with love and love is all I need.

Dad, Mom; you both are special in every way, encouraging me more & more each passing day. You both are the reason why I’m so strong. With you two at the helm, not a thing could go wrong. You’ve both helped me through many trials & tribulations; you’ve made things better in every situation. Thank you both for always being there, and showing me that you truly care. Words could never explain how I feel about you, but I hope you know that I truly love you two.

Thank you for lifting my spirit and letting me know there is hope. Thank you for being the best parents. Today, my birthday, wouldn’t have existed if not for you two.

Happy birthday to me!!!

Love from…

Your Son,
