EAJC #15, Parents...

So Em's challenge last Sunday (running a bit behind) was parents.

Here is mine.
My parents were really young when they had me (arnt I cute!) Mum was only 16 and Dad 21. Unfortunately (for me) but I am sure most fortunate for them, they broke up when I was about 5years old. I lived with my Mum and saw my Dad often.

I have a strong relationship with both of them today. Maybe its because I am older and have my own child now. I realise that they are human and did the best they could. It is a matter of accepting people for who they are. Being aware of what will never change, and loving them unconditionally for who they are... my parents, and I do love them! Very much. They are more than parents, they are my friends and I can speak with both of them about anything, and everything... and often do!

I think I turned out pretty well, so they must have done something right *grin*

Peace out...
