    This is too hard – no matter whom I pick, there is someone else who would be slighted.

    I’ll say the one person I never thought I’d thank 30 years later for certain things would be my mom. I’m thankful that she “made” me do a lot of things that “weren’t fair” but really taught me sense. 10 / 20 / 30 years later, it didn’t matter whether my lazy brother, sister, or neighbor had to do as much as I did; what mattered was whether I was competent.

    I remember being 11, 13, 15 . . . not a pretty memory . . . I have that to look forward to with my daughters, and I hope I can be as strong as my mom was and stick to my guns.

    I’d thank my girlfriend Laurie, who taught me how to relax in front of my 1st born. I had OCD. I was anxious, and I learned from my sisters that kids should be seen and not heard. I learned to relax, enjoy, be more patient, and loving. She never once told me how to accomplish this… she just led by example and for that, I am eternally grateful.

    I have many I would like to thank.
    Since I must pick one…my DAD.
    He taught me to not be afraid to speak what is right and to stand behind my words. He taught me that actions speak louder than words. I believe that and have taught my two boys that, as well!

  6. I WOULD HAVE TO SAY IT WAS MY FATHER, AS WELL! HE GAVE ME A PLAQUE WHEN I WAS A TEEN THAT STUCK WITH ME ALL THESE YEARS IT SAID:

    SON I GIVE YOU THIS PLAQUE AND UPON IT YOU WILL NOTICE OUR NAME. THIS NAME HAS BEEN HANDED DOWN FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. RESPECT IT, HONOR IT, AND PROTECT IT. FOR IT IS THE ONLY NAME YOU WILL HAVE.

    I HAVE DONE MY BEST TO HOLD TRUE TO THE PLAQUE. ALONG THE WAY, I LEARNED THAT IF I TARNISH THE NAME IT EFFECTS ALL MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY AND THAT I AM NOT WILLING TO DO.

    I would have to say thanks to my 9th grade english teacher. She called me at home one day to tell me that no matter what was going on in my life at that time, that I mattered.

    This feels really odd to say.. My mom and I never ever got along when I was growing up.. But i’d have to thank her. She taught me how to deal witht he things I can not change..

    Many,Many people have taught me things good and bad that have helped me grow into the person I am today.I THANK them all.But if I have to chose one,its my DAD 🙂 He loved me unconditionally.He accepted me for me always.And when he spoke to me.it was always in LOVE,never in anger.I respected him as a man.You see,I have not had luck in the men department.The only thing that helps me believe that there are still good guys out there is my dad.He wasnt perfect,none of us are.But I always felt safe with him in my life.Now that he is gone,I do feel lost.But I hold on to his words and all the great memeories. 🙂
