A letter to my parents

Now, I’m back with another letter to. Thank you, to Sophie for creating this, you can read her posts HERE. Firstly, Happy Birthday Mum and Dad! Yes, today is both of my parents birthday’s. To honour this I have decided to dedicate a post to the amazing people they are. My parents are both amazing people who have done a brilliant job raising me, if I do say so myself. Now my parents identity is anonymous to respect their privacy so here is a lovely cheesy photo of me showing my love for them, hope you appreciate this picture mum!

So here it goes…

 

To my parents,

 

I’m pretty sure I wasn’t an angel child! I mean I’m sure I wasn’t far from it but no one’s perfect am I right?! From the day I was born, you guys have always put me first. You both sacrificed many things so we could go on holidays. Not just any type of holiday but to Disneyland Paris. I know how you guys did anything to make sure we got there and I’m so grateful for this! Without you making these sacrifices I wouldn’t have the love and passion I do now for Disney.

 

Also, thanks guys for dealing with my endless tantrums during my early years. I regularly used to pack my barbie suitcase and storm out of the house and sit at the end of the street because I couldn’t have my own way. At the time I didn’t know but now I know you were always right. (that does hurt to admit though)

 

Both of you stuck by me through the hard times, especially with my mental health. You both always did what was right for my MH even if it wasn’t easy for you. For this, I salute you! Thank you Dad for escorting me to the school entrance at Grammar School and making sure I attended during my dark days because of this I’m now at university. You’ve both sat with me on numerous occasions telling me it will get better and have shown me how to be strong.

 

Then there’s the friendships. Friendships have never been easy for me. Maybe it’s because I’m not a friendship kind of person or maybe the friendships just aren’t right. But no matter what you never let your own opinions of my friendships influence me. I’m sure sometimes you really had to bite your tongues. But, thank you I’ve learnt from all of these friendships.

 

Thank you for letting me having numerous piercing all bar one have healed now. You let me have my nose pierced twice and even took me to have one ear piercing removed because it had sunk into my cartilage. I will reassure you both, I’m done with piercings now.

 

I know when I first announced I wanted to move to uni you were both skeptical. But, you were both there to support me and help me on the moving day and you have been ever since. Whether its a phone call when I’ve accidentally microwaved a quiche or coming and helping move stuff.

 

Lastly, thank you for being amazing parents! I know I don’t tell you enough but both of you have 100% shaped the person I am today. Although, I am a little bias I think I’m a pretty awesome person and that’s down to you. I hope in the future if I ever have children I can be as good of a parent as you have been to me.

Love Brooke x

    What a lovely idea for a post and your parents will treasure it. I am so glad you wrote this. Without wanting to sound too depressing having lost both my parents I wish I could let them know what they meant to me. It is too easy to take people for granted in life. Your post is really touching. X

      Thank you so much for reading this! It is comments like yours that mean the world to me💖 I agree, people take others for granted and it’s only when we loose the ones we love that we realise this! x
