My parents are great! I love them and they love me! Let me show you one (well, two) instances that they show this to me. Once a week my wonderful dad comes and takes me out to lunch. He has been doing this for as long as I have had jobs (he even likes to take pictures to remember each job, not embarrassing at all). I love it because it makes me feel special and loved that my dad takes time out of his busy schedule to come pick me up and take me out. We have a great time chatting with each other and the waitresses that we have come to know out at Tollgate Inn (our most frequented and faithful restaurant). At our most recent outing the waitress (Katy) actually remembered my order down to the last little detail (and let me tell you, I have a lot of details). I also took a few pictures of my own to remember these wonderful father/daughter bonding times we share (and so that I could share them with you).
Yes, thats my dad with the spoon on his nose. Sadly I am ashamed to say that I could not get my spoon to stay on my nose. My dad has talent, and apparently I did not inherent it. Plus, he just called me at work to tell me that he thinks I'm neat and to have a great day. Gotta love this guy!
And here are my mom and I having lunch one day awhile ago. Her and I do not do lunch once a week like my dad but she loves to do little special, random things for me every now again. She is more about the surprise factor (sound familiar?). So one day when she knew I couldn't leave work to go out to lunch she brought a basket complete with soup and salad that she had made, a table cloth, bowls, nice crystal glasses, a little candle, and napkins. Oh, wait, I forgot to mention that the napkins were wrapped around the silverware and tied with a little red ribbon. Isn't my mom cute? She's so thoughtful and I just love that about her!
Well, there's my fabulous, loving parents for ya. I am so blessed to have them in my life. They may be wierd and quirky at times but they love the Lord, each other and their family and friends. Can't ask for anything more than that, now can ya?
Thanks mom and dad! I love you!!
