These are all the things I want my parents to know before it’s too late:

I think about you every day

Even when I get busy and caught up with everything my hectic, 20-something life affords me, I’m always thinking about you.

I truly appreciate every single thing you have done for me

I know I don’t say this enough, but I am so very grateful for every single thing you have done for me.

I love you both more than there are stars in the sky

I do my best to tell you often, but I can’t really communicate how much I love the both of you. I am so blessed to have you there for me, whatever I choose to do.

I know how much you’ve sacrificed for your children

And, I can’t imagine how hard those sacrifices must have been for you. Having children means putting them before yourselves; it means putting their needs ahead of yours and always making decisions based on what’s best for them.

I am a better person because I was given the two of you as parents

I have you two to thank for the way I turned out: Strong willed and passionate. The two of you are forces to be reckoned with, and I adore your kindness, your fire and your compassion.

I miss you deeply

Being far away from home takes its toll on my heart. My choice to live in NYC has nothing to do with how much I love you. I feel homesick constantly and sometimes, I consider what life would be like if I lived closer to home.

I have nightmares about losing you

I know that I must face the facts, that you won’t be around forever and that I will have to live a parentless life one day. I have nightmares about losing the two of you all the time.

It won’t be goodbye, just see you later

Even when you’re gone, you’ll always be with me. I need to remind myself of this frequently. You may not be here with me physically, but you will always live on in my heart.
