There have been many times where i couldn’t understand why you do some of the things you do. I know you were born and raised in the middle east, and it upset me that sometimes you really think things are the same way here like they are there. But even though sometimes i don’t understand, i am glad you raised me the way you did. I’m glad you were strict when you had to be, and lenient when you were. I see so many people mess shit up all the time, every day, because they don’t know the difference between right and wrong, and I’m glad you taught me. I see tons of people doing stuff i couldn’t even IMAGINE myself doing, because you taught me right from wrong. Even though i think you are wrong a lot, i know why you raise my sisters and i the way you do, and i’m glad raise us differently then all the other parents out there. Even though sometimes i wish i can stay out later then i can, or go places i cant.. i know why i cant, because you want me to be home and safe and you want to protect me. And when i do ask to do things, like stay in East Lansing for the weekend, i know that a lot of times you really want to say no, but you say yes so that i won’t be angry.. and i’m glad you give me the freedom i need but be strict when you need to be.. and i know that when i have children of my own i’ll understand the things i dont understand right now. i love you both so much.
