To my Mom and Dad
I know this has been really hard on you so I've decided to dedicate a song to each of you. Whenever you miss me, just listen and sing and I'll be right there with you :)
Mom, obviously Jann Arden "Good Mother"! We have had a million sing alongs to this song and it always chokes me up. "I've got a good mother and her voice is what keeps me here". One of the only reasons I have been able to go on this trip is because of your guidance and support. If I ever get scared, I will close my eyes, think of your smile and hold your hand so I can go on. Everywhere I go, you will be there too.
Dad, Neil Young "Old Man". "Old man take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you were". We have had many battles in our day, but my strength and perseverance are certainly traights I can thank you for. Though our goodbye was short and sweet, that doesn't mean my love is. Every time I see a breathtaking sunset, a bird that's really neat-o or a Dad holding his daughters hand... I will think of you.
I'll miss you both so much more than you know, thank you for making me who I am! Don't cry, just smile and I'll see you soon okay? And tell Oma I'll stay safe, I don't want to see anymore tears from that beautiful woman when I get home.
