Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! I wanted you to know just how special and important you are to me, and how much I respect and appreciate everything you’ve done for me. You’ve done so many things and given up so much for me. I know it’s not easy being a mother, and I’ve seen on so many different occasions how awful people can really be at it. When I look back at the things I never had, I realize I never really wanted any of them. I’m glad you knew that, even though at the time it may have made me upset. You’ve always known what’s best, and I’ve tried my very best to make sure I heed all of your advice. At times it’s hard because I’m a child, and I need to try things and venture to new horizons! You built me a foundation and gave me a love I couldn’t possibly understand even now, and on that foundation you’ve helped me to grow. I’m so happy with the person you’ve made me to be and I thank you so much for that.
