It's time to celebrate the people who made you everything you are: It's National Parents' Day!
TODAY celebrates your milestones, so we asked you to send us photos of parents of all ages, along with their tips for happiness and health.
Here are a few of our favorites. Thanks to all who submitted!
Bob and Dee Berg
Married 61 years; three children, four grandchildren
"They celebrated their 61st Wedding Anniversary on July 16th, raised 3 children and have 4 amazing grandchildren. They are a constant source of love, support and inspiration to our entire family. Our lives are blessed with their presence and guidance. Happy Parents day to 2 of the most special people on this earth."
Cheryl Kohlem Korfhagen
Married 54 years; two children, four grandchildren
"My parents, pictured here with their 4 grandchildren, have been married for 54 years!!! They have taught my sister and I and our families so much about love and life. The family dinners during every holiday will be something that I know I will always cherish and never forget!!! We appreciate all you do mom and dad!!!"
Bill and Virginia Raynes
"My parents, Bill and Virginia Raynes, are 89 years young, live in the family home, and continue to teach their four children to look for and find the humor in every day."
John N. Michelle Hancock
Five children, eight grandchildren
"My parents (here with a few of their grandchildren) have gone beyond doing what was needed to be done to raise 5 children & also continuing to help out as much as possible with 8 grandchildren. We are who we are by the encouragement they gave endlessly, the discipline that was required in making us accountable for our actions, letting us fall when a valuable lesson needed to be learned & the love they give continues. Our parents are great!"
Linda and Al Sheehan
Married 48 years, two children
"I am sure it hasn't been the picture perfect ride they set out for all those years ago, but it has been a ride filled with building a beautiful family full of love and gratitude. My gratitude runs deep and my love deeper. My sister and I couldn't have asked for better parents. Our children too have been lucky enough to share in our joy."
Pete and Rose Molina
Married almost 43 years
"My parents are AMAZING! Almost 43 years together, you both have shown me what it means to love. You taught me how to be patient and kind...perfect qualities for the teacher I am today. On the day I graduated from college, your smiles showed how proud you were of me! I love you both...to the moon and back!"
Married 58 years, six children
"My parents, married 58 years now, taught us to love, obey, respect & trust one another. That's why us six kids are so fortunate on passing down to our kids, these rules of life. Love my family to pieces."
Ralph and Kathleen Fava
Married 37 years, two children
"Our parents are wonderful, selfless, kind-hearted individuals, who would give you the shirt off their back .. Ralph & Katie Fava are from Western New York & have been married for 37 years! My sister Maria & I would like to wish them a very happy parents' day!!"
Nancy Slade McVey
Married 48 years
"(Pictured with their grandkids) Married 48 years...words cannot express how much I love and appreciate them."
"My parents have always been there for us (my brother is a Marine). He's been on several deployments, and my parents wrote letters to him religiously. Our parents have a loving and caring spirit, and now they spend their days watching my brother's son. They are the BEST! We love them so much."
Happy National Parents' Day to all the incredible moms and dad (and grandmas and grandpas too) out there!
