Parents love; others talk of love. ~ Charlotte Mary Yonge

 

Close your eyes and think of the people who have made the greatest contributions to your life. Who has shaped you into the person you are today?

Are you thinking of your mother, father, aunt, uncle, neighbor, foster parent, teacher, or grandparent?

Whoever holds that special place in your heart, today’s post is dedicated to them.

This is for all the people who have raised you, cared for you, loved you.

Parenthood requires love, not DNA. Celebrate that special someone in your life.
