God had a great plan. In his design he looked upon the world and noticed it was incomplete. The world needed bonds and unconditional love that stretched beyond the realm of the Heavens. So he created families. It was a masterful creation. But yet, it still was missing an amazing piece. So he created our family. The Parrish family. He knew that when the world looked at our family they would KNOW what love was. The world would KNOW what an unbreakable bond was. The world would KNOW that despite the miles and years apart and differences that we would still call upon each other when needed. The world would KNOW the real meaning of family. When our time on Earth came to an end God KNEW we would leave behind a legacy that would stretch across generations and our names would roll of the tongues of descendants. Our purpose is not just to exist, but to leave an imprint on generations to come how we lived and loved. That is is the Parrish way.
Here’s to all that came before us, that taught us, that raised us. Here’s to those that have left us behind, young and old, that left an imprint on our hearts. Here’s to the summer nights that turned into mornings with friends that became family, making us much stronger than before. Here’s to more times with our loved ones. Here’s to being Parrish!
