Today is the official day that the world lets you know how special and important you are. I hope that you know you are special and important everyday. You are the strongest woman I know and you make me a better person. Thank you for letting me go this year and giving me the opportunity to be on my own. I love you more because of it. Thank you for answering the phone when I needed to talk when I was walking alone down the street, for sending me Thanksgiving decorations, and for making sure that I was taken care of this past year. You taught me everything I needed to know and I hope I made you proud. I love spending time with you when I’m home and I love that you just sit back and listen to me ramble about anything and everything. I’m so proud to call you my mom. I love you this much.
