I found this on the web and thought it was beautiful. Now that my parents are getting a lot older in their years, I believe a part of my mission in life is to be there for my parents and help them as much as I can, since they’ve given up so much in life to give me the life that I love. As much as I’m excited to leave UT in a few years, a part of me worries and stresses about leaving my parents here. Jay’s been such a wonderful and caring son-in-law and he’s helped them so much and does it so willingly and happily, I’m so grateful for him and I know my parents are too.
I’m the only one out of my parents’ five children that live near them, and I worry who will watch over them and take care of them when I’m gone. But I guess all I should think about now is doing as much as I can for them while I’m here now, and worry about the latter as it happens.
I believe the love a parent has for their child is the most pure and perfect sentiment between two people. I’m grateful for my parents who showed me what perfect love is, and I hope I’m not too far off while trying to catch up in their footsteps.
