NC Bound ~

Parents act so strong for us, that we 
often forget just how fragile they are...

On or way to mom and dad in North Carolina.  
Another perk of living in Florida, we get to see my parents 
a little more often than when we lived in Branson.  Love it. 

 As my parents get older, I want to be able to spend
 as much time as I can with them.  As far as I am concerned, 
not enough as is, but I am happy and grateful for whatever
 time we can have with them. Happy days ahead. 

Mom and dad love living in North Carolina,
 but we their daughters would love if they would move,
 and be closer to one of us.  I would love if they would 
move back to Florida, but they really love NC.

The next few days I will be enjoying time with them. 
When in NC we always stay with my parents.  As they said, 
"you and Arvid have your room here.  Whenever you want." 
 I do not like staying with anyone and neither does 
Arvid, but we do enjoy staying with my parents.

Many of us tend to take our parents for granted.  
I always make a conscious reminder to myself to NEVER
 do that.  I may not always succeed, but I try, and I remember 
always that if it were not for their sacrifices I would not be
 the woman I am today.  I love the woman I am today, and I
 know that a lot of it has to do with he way I was raised.

Children learn to smile from their parents.
My parents taught me honesty, truth, compassion,
 kindness and how to care for people. Also, they encouraged 
me to take risks, to boldly go. They taught me that the 
greatest danger in life is not taking the adventure...
