This is a picture of my parents and I on my 48th birthday (8/14). My mom had a stroke nearly two years ago. Although she will never be the same she has been recovering slowly. My dad used to be a runner. That was his passion. He's been all over the USA to compete in different marathons. I think he did the Boston Marathon twice. His running days are behind him but he still has the passion. They will both be celebrating their 80th birthday before the year's end. After losing a few different loved ones in the past couple of years I realize how I'm blessed to have them still. They provide a wonderful childhood for me and my two brothers. We didn't get everything we wanted but had everything we needed and more. They have been great parents.
