Unselfish Heroes

I have no idea what I ever did to deserve two of the greatest people in the world to be my parents, but not a day goes by when I don't appreciate them.  My parents are both older and had me later in their lives (I am the next to the youngest of a very large family).  As a child, I regretted their age and secretly wished they were young and hip parents who would take me places.  I never realized how amazing they both are until I hit high school.  My dad is one of the most patient people in the world who followed my sports career and attended every single game to support me.  For so many years, he sacrificed luxuries to send my brothers and sisters to private schools.  He always put our needs first.  My mom is the most giving person I have ever met.  She will do anything for anyone and never complain about.  I truly am blessed to have them in my life.
