this post is a tribute to my parents, two of the hardest-working people i have ever known. at 82 and 80, they've slowed down a lot the last few years but one thing that has never waned a single bit is the love they have for their family. parents of 5, grandparents of 11, and great-grandparents to 4 (soon to be 5) their biggest joy is spending time with all of us, especially the little ones. i sometimes wonder at all that they've weathered and witnessed in their long lives; the technological advancements alone must seem mind-boggling compared to when they were born. but their constant was always family values, commitment to a job well-done and a simple country life. so this is my thank you to mom and dad for all you are and continue to be to me and all of us. you have been the single biggest influence in my life. i am humbled by your faith and grateful for every moment we spend together.
