On the twelth day of Christmas, my parents gave to me:
Twelve goals for living,
Eleven hopes for wishing,
Ten helping fingers,
Nine lessons learning,
Eight songs for singing,
Seven prayers a week,
Six swats when naughty,
Five caring hugs,
Four grandparents,
Three siblings,
Two loving hearts,
And the freedom to be just me.

I really like this one!! Being a parent isn't easy but I am willing to lay odds that yours are very proud of you.
