mom and dad.

I credit the majority of my traits to my mom and dad. I still haven't figured out which one I look the most like though.

My calves are my dads, my eyes are my moms. 

My OCD/planning skills are my dads. My sassyness is my moms :)

But perhaps the best trait passed down from both of them is their willingness to give and compassion for others. They both are the first to volunteer for any crazy giving-back idea or donation collection I post on here. 

My dad serves as a Christian caregiver at our church helping members through hard times. 

My mom has actually given her own scarf and gloves off her body for someone in need. 

They both show compassion  and respect for any person they come across no matter what.

And they both didn't wait more than three seconds to donate to the walk, and to gather items for our love basket on my desk. They are two of the most selfless, loving and caring people I know. I learned from the best :) Thanks for all your love and support Mom & Dad!

Be the change. Make the difference.
