A letter to my parents

Hi guys!

I hope you had a beautiful Sunday.

Well, I really like Sundays cause I get to go praise God with others and listen to empowering sermons.Then of course, eat the special Sunday rice afterwards and spend time with family. It’s just a restful day and a perfect day to recoup for the week ahead.

Parents have played major roles in our lives. They’ve been the guardian angels for us on earth. It’s important to take some time out and appreciate their efforts over the years. So here is the challenge for today;

Dear Parents,

Thank you for everything you’ve been doing for me. You’ve trained me in the way that I should go and I can’t depart from it. You’ve also given me all the vital tools to survive in life. Of course the training process wasn’t always fun. There were times when I just couldn’t get why you were so hard on me but I got to learn mediocrity was never an option. I had to be the best there was, even if this meant staying at home studying when my friends were out playing (it sucked at the time).

Mom, you’ve always paid attention to every detail about my life.  You even listened to words I never said out. Thank you for the love you showered on us. Thank you for teaching me how to stay strong and be who I am without excuses. The values and good manners you impacted in our lives go a long way in defining who we are today.

Dad, you’re my hero! As my only male model, you’ve set a standard so high, anyone that would break it would need to receive special grace from God 😉 . You always cheered me on even when I felt I couldn’t measure up to your expectations. Thanks for believing in me.

Thank you for teaching me the beauty in love, marriage and family. Most importantly, thank you for teaching me about God. Mom, I’ll never forget all the Bible stories you often shared with us. Thank you so much for being such a blessing.

Words are inadequate to express my deep gratitude to God for keeping you and to you, for loving us and molding us to be the best we can. Every single day I think about you, I bless God for sending me to the right family.  We’ve had our highs and lows; few lows where I even thought of running away- childish foolishness. But through it all, I realize that family remains even when everyone else disappears.

Thank you for being my parents; I couldn’t wish for any better. You are the best for me and I love you! 🙂

God bless you!

Yours truly,

~Mfon

Close with this word;

Children, do what your parents tell you. This is only right.

“Honor your father and mother” is the first commandment that has a promise attached to it, namely, 

So you will live well and have a long life.” 

Fathers, don’t exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master- Eph 6:1-4 (MSG)

Your turn…

Why not write a letter to your parents? It may seem silly at first but I’m sure they would really appreciate it. 🙂

Have a blessed week ahead!

Day 23 down, 9 more to go.
