I never realized how much my parents did for me until I left home.
I can still remember the first year out on my own like it was yesterday even though it has been over seven years.
It was like getting hit by a tornado of responsibility. My parents did a great job of training me, but for some reason, I was still shocked by how many things I had to keep track of and how many bills I had to pay. I have realized that the sacrifices of a parent are unmatchable. My father is amazing, and even though I have been out of his house for years, he is still always there to help me when I need it. The furnace in my house is not doing very well. I have noticed that it has shut off more often than it should, and it is having trouble keeping the house at the set temperature. I know that my dad can fix just about anything on a furnace because I can remember going to many family member’s houses throughout the years so that my dad could fix their furnaces. My uncle was told by an HVAC technician that he needed a new furnace, but he did not have the money at the time, so my dad decided to try to fix it. Within about five hours, my dad had the furnace running again, and it still runs great to this day which is about ten years later. I will definitely be giving my dad a call tomorrow because I know he will be able to repair my furnace. I have been so blessed with wonderful, supportive parents!
