  • Taught you how to read. Imagine life today if you didn’t know how to read
  • Let you off the hook for something you did
  • Forgave you

  • Was silent when they had every right to chew you out for something you
  • Served as role model for you.

  • Let you win an argument, even though they were right and you were wrong
  • Brought out the best in you
  • Chose not to believe the gossip they heard about you
  • Asked for your help
  • Gave you hope when you had none yourself
