TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 7) DEDICATED TO MY PARENTS THOM AND SHELLIE YAFANARO

HI ALL. SORRY FOR LATE START AGAIN, WAS BUSY DECORATING FOR CHRISTMAS WITH MY MOM. I GOT A LETTER THE OTHER DAY FROM A NEW MOMMY WHOSE CHILD HAS O.I, SHE HAD ASKED ME TO TALK MORE ABOUT MY PARENTS, AND TALK ABOUT THE TYPE OF PERSON I AM BECAUSE OF THEM, SO THAT IS WHAT I AM GOING TO WRITE ABOUT TODAY, I HAD BEEN WANTING TO DO IT FOR A FEW DAYS NOW, JUST WAS WAITING ON GODS TIMING, AND I FEEL THAT TIME IS NOW!! WOW WHERE DO I BEGIN, WELL FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD NOT BE THE PERSON I AM IF IT WERE NOT FOR THEM, EVERYTHING I HAVE LEARNED THROUGH OUT MY LIFE, I HAVE LEARNED FROM THE GREAT EXAMPLE THAT THEY HAVE SET OUT FOR NOT ONLY ME, BUT ALSO MY BROTHER, AND SISTER. THEY HAVE TAUGHT US HOW TO LOVE, AND TAUGHT US ABOUT WHAT TRUE LOVE IS, AND WHO OUR TRUE LOVE SHOULD BE, WHICH IS OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME TO NEVER BE ASHAMED OF THE PERSON I AM, MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME TO ALWAYS HAVE A OPEN HEART TOWARDS OTHERS, AND TO ALWAYS PUT GOD BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE, EVEN BEFORE OUR SELVES. MY MOM IS A WONDERFUL MOTHER/CAREGIVER, AND BEST FRIEND TO ME. BOTH MY PARENTS HAVE GIVEN THEIR ALL IN TO TAKING CARE OF ME, AND GIVEN ME THE BEST LIFE POSSIBLE. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU ALL READ MY PAST BLOGS, BUT IF YOU DID, YOU WILL SEE ONE FROM A WEEK AGO, WHERE I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL, AND SICK, I WAS SICK FOR ALMOST 3 DAYS, MY MOTHER STAYED UP WITH ME FOR ALL THAT TIME CARING FOR ME, AND COMFORTING ME. THAT IS JUST THE TYPE OF PERSON SHE IS, SHES ALWAYS CARING FOR OTHERS, BOTH MY PARENTS DEFINITELY HAVE A SERVANT’S HEART. MY DAD HAS ALWAYS TAUGHT ME, TO BE MYSELF, NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAY OR THINK, DON’T LET IT BOTHER YOU, YOU KNOW THE TYPE OF PERSON YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE, AND GOD WILL SHOW YOU IF THERE ARE THINGS THAT NEED TO CHANGE WITH IN YOU. THOSE ARE JUST TWO OR THREE THINGS THAT MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME. ONE OF MY TWO MORE SPECIAL MEMORIES FROM WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, WAS WHEN MY DAD CAME HOME FROM WORK ONE DAY, AND GAVE ALL US GIRLS WHICH MEANS ME MY SISTER AND MOM, THIS HEART JEWELRY, MINE WAS A RING, AND MY SISTERS, AND MOMS I THINK WAS BRACELETS, AND WHEN HE GAVE IT TO US, HE TOLD US HE WANTED US TO ALWAYS WHERE IT, SO THAT WE WOULD KNOW HIS HEART WAS ALWAYS WITH US, MY DAD WOULD ALWAYS DO SPECIAL THINGS LIKE THAT FOR US. AFTER I GOT OLDER THOUGH, AND IN TO MY TEEN YEARS, MY RING STARTED TO GET SMALL, AND MY MOM KEPT TRYING TO GET IT OFF ME BUT I WOULDN’T TAKE IT OFF, SO FOR MY,  I THINK IT WAS 16TH BIRTHDAY, MY PARENTS HAD A HEART SHAPED RING MADE FOR ME, AND IT HAS 4 HEARTS ON IT, AND MY PARENTS TOLD ME, THAT EACH HEART REPRESENTED SOMEONE, ONE HEART WAS MY MOMS, ONE HEART WAS MY DADS, ONE HEART WAS MINE, AND ONE WAS THE LORDS, AND THEY TOLD ME THEY WANTED ME TO ALWAYS WEAR THAT, SO I KNEW THAT THEIR HEARTS WERE ALWAYS WITH MINE, I HAVE NEVER TAKEN THAT RING OFF. THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE THINGS THAT MAKE MY PARENTS SO GREAT, AND MAKE ME THE PERSON I AM. SINCE YESTERDAY WAS THANKSGIVING, MY TIP FOR TODAY IS TO TRULY THINK ABOUT WHAT YOUR GRATEFUL FOR. I AM GRATEFUL FOR MY PARENTS. I WOULD NOT BE THE PERSON I AM IF NOT FOR THEM. I AM SO THANKFUL GOD PICKED THEM TO BE MY PARENTS, I WOULD NOT BE ALIVE IF IT WERE NOT FOR CHRIST JESUS. I’M SO THANKFUL THAT MY PARENTS WERE INTRODUCED TO GODS LOVE, AS YOUNG ADULTS, AND THAT THEY WERE THAN ABLE TO INTRODUCE ME TO THAT SAME KIND OF LOVE. BE THANKFUL BE THANKFUL BE THANKFUL THAT’S ALL MY TIP IS FOR TODAY. GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ THIS 🙂

    Wow Jackie…tears fill my eyes I am a parent of two children, my daughter 12 has Type 1V and Ostopenia and my son 9 has begun his journey of tests to see if he has it as well he too has Ostopenia. Today I read your blog and thought there is some normal to all of this..dr appts, hospital visits, sleepless nights but most of all the love we give each other. I only wish I had my parents to give me strength to guide me through this year I lost my mom and 8 yrs ago my dad now I feel like a dust ball in the wind waiting for the hug from above.

    Thanks for sharing …

    Hey there cuz,

    😉 I am very proud of you. I love to read and write too and it’s cool to see that we have something in common!

    When you came out and ministered with us a few years back and I couldn’t stop crying it was because so much of Jesus is in you. I could feel his presence very strong on you. That has never really happened to me before.

    I too, am thankful that your parents helped you become the woman of God that you are because it has touched my life and the lives of countless others.

    Keep doing what you are doing Jackie and know that I am praying for you!

    Love,
    Kristi
