Topik: Parenting

Definition of Parent:

Parent is an individual who foster all facets of a child’s growth – who nourishes, protects, and guides new life through the course of its development. (Brooks, 2008)

… And I suddenly remember my parents, who are now busy and struggling so hard to make the living for our family, who are now live in two different cities (Semarang and Surabaya), and who are still sincerely give their love and affection through phone calls, text messages, and endless prayers.

I just want to say that I feel so lucky and blessed to have my mom and my dad as my parents. I learn a lot from them that this life is a ferris wheel, it’s all about ups and downs, and the best person is the one who always feel grateful with everything they have.

So, I promise:

I’m gonna take care of myself; I will study hard, so you both can smile proudly to me at my graduation day. I’m trying my best not to let you down.

And I’m sorry for everything I did, and for making you cry.

I know we’ll make it through everything in this world. I pray a lot that there will be the day when we are together again, sleeping under the same roof.

I wish you health, a strong heart, and a blissful time.

I love you, Mom. I love you, Dad. I really do.
