My dad is always good for throwing my philosophies of life at. I usually tell him these while we are playing sports. Thats how I bond with my dad. It might be on the golf course, playing volleyball on the front yard, or hiking a mountain he's always been there to talk to and give me greater understand on my life, especially spiritual aspects.
My parents have been such solid rocks in my life and have taught me so many valuable things. I loved having my mom at home growing up. By her example she gave me the desire to be more domestic. She's also been a great example of service. She's always given to her family selflessly and also to others. She takes time to visit old people or young mothers that might be in need of some time away from their kids.
My dad also is a great example of service. He's held various church callings and has always done his best to assist those in need. I felt like sometimes I hardly saw him cause he was always away helping others.
I love the way my parents have taught me to think about the world. They've given me a jump start on life and I'll be forever grateful.
I think the only people who would really care to read this post is my parents, and maybe my siblings. So I'm going to stop now cause I think I could go a lot deeper.
