Thank You Mum and Dad…

Thank you mum and dad for being just as you are… 🙂

Thank you mum and dad…
God bless you mum and dad for bringing me to this world;

For raising me up to be who I am today;

You are indeed the best parents in the world for me.

Thank you dad for scolding me whenever I went wrong;

For never hesitating to correct me whenever I strayed;

I don’t know where I’d be without you…

Though it was painful and unpleasant;
I wouldn’t be what I am today without the rod of correction.

Thank you mum for holding me in your arms whenever I cried;
For comforting me whenever dad corrected me with the rod;

For telling me he did it out of love and not out of contempt;

So I wouldn’t grow up hating him.

Although I have both fond and sad memories of you;
You two are the best gifts ever given to me;

You made me feel worthy and special;

You are the best! 🙂

    Thanks very much for this post, Joseyphina, and I echo your sentiments…a loving ‘Thank You’ to my parents, and to all parents who’ve loved their kids as best they could.

  6. Well written! Discipline is not pleasant for either the child or the parent. What a blessing that your parents cared that much. Our parents, as partners, give the picture of God. Thanks! Marie
