Why Cherish? Well I am 33 and the youngest of 10 children, my parent's are in their mid 70's and I am starting to realize my parents will not be aound much longer so I cherish each and every day I have with them.
I have grown up resounding myself to that fact that I will be still quite young when my parents pass, it saddens me to know that I will not have them around as long as my older siblings have and that they will never see me become a grandparent as some of my older siblings have, or for that matter even be around when my children graduate or get married; so for as long as I have them I will cherish them, and when they are gone I will cherish my memories of them.
I love you Mom and Dad; Happy New Year.
PS *get well soon Mom*
