My son, hear the instruction of your father; reject not nor forsake the teaching of your mother. For they are a [victor's] chaplet (garland) of grace upon your head and chains and pendants [of gold worn by kings] for your neck. Proverbs 1:8-9
My parents are great! They are the best parents a child could ever hope to have. I am so blessed that they live near me (about 2 minutes down the road) and cherish the time we have to spend together. Words cannot express how much I love them and how much I appreciate them. Mom and Dad -- you are a gift to me from the Lord and I thank Him for choosing you to be my parents!
