a song to our parents

i just downloaded a complete albums of disney's children songs for my daughter and i found this beautiful song that reminds me of my parents,

I picked the reddest apple from the tree
It was the finest one that I could see
I saved it all except a bite or two, just for you
I carried home the groceries from the store
I wanted to be helpful with a chore
I put them all away except a few, just for you

Someday I’ll be grown up too.
And if I can I’ll grow up just like you.

I ate up all my lunch just like you said
But I think there was a little too much bread
And so I left the crust when I was through, just for you.

Someday I’ll be grown up too.
If I can I’ll grow up just like you.

Just one more thing before I go to bed
And everything I have to say is said
There’s something special that I’d like to do

Here’s a kiss, just for you.

while listening to this special song, i thought it only fitting to devote some blog space to talking about my parents. i know, it cliche to answer this question, "who is your personal hero(s)?", but sometimes it just undeniable true. if everyone else who answer that question in a similar fashion is fortunate enough to have as phenomenal parents as i do, then they are truly blessed, because i know i am. not only set a prefect example of how to be a good parents ( thought for their sake, i wish they wouldn't worry too much ), but they were a role model for how to be an exceptional human being.

they did teach me how to share, make me finish everything i started, and tell me to be nice. they consistently show me thru their actions how to speak up and how to stand strong when defending my self. i was also incredibly lucky to be told throughout my childhood that i could grow up to be whatever i wanted to be. and i am thankful for that for what i've become today.

so this song is for you, my amazing parents. i love you too much. i hope you're safe and sound and happy in where ever side of the world you are.

ps: i do wish someday my daughter will sing me this song and say exact the same thing as i said today.
