Thank you for making sure we are fed and loved, but you nurture us in so many more ways.

Dear Lolo and Lola,

Thank you for spoiling us, but most importantly, thank you for teaching us what genuine love means.

It’s a harsh world. There are people who will step on you to get ahead and sometimes, you won’t even realize it until you’re bruised and beat down.

In your arms, there is no judgment. We are not defined by our occupation, relationship status, or our weight.

Though no matter what we do, you would say we’re either too fat or too thin. Don’t worry, we get that this is how you make lambing.

Thank you for making sure we are fed and loved, but you nurture us in so many more ways.

You help us see our potential and value hard work, confident in the knowledge that no matter how cold and mean the world can be, we can always come home to you.

You help us see our potential and value hard work, confident in the knowledge that no matter how cold and mean the world can be, we can always come home to you.

Though you scold us from time to time, you truly know us. Your belief in us inspires us to press on. Thank you for teaching us that it’s okay to have big dreams.

When the world is rooting for us to fail, you remain our fans, our close confidantes.

In a world full of noise, gossip, and negativity, thank you for showing us how to be still and wise.

It's amazing how the past decades haven’t left you jaded. It’s so easy to lose faith in the world and in people. Thank you for teaching us to focus on the good.

Thank you for making us feel worthy of love.
