Hi Ma Ma. I know you're never going to read this but I want the world to know just exactly what you mean to me. We've been through so much in the last eighteen years; we've fought (A LOT), we've said things we didn't mean (A LOT), we've done things we wish we hadn't (A LOT), but in the end you're the best mom I could've asked for. Through everything, through our ups and downs, through our highs and lows, we've been through it all and came out on top. We've grown from it all and created a beautiful relationship unlike any other. You are my role model; you are the strongest woman I've ever known. You are the bravest, kindest, sweetest, most inspiring woman in my life. Though some parents refuse to allow their kids to take control of their own life in fear that they'll mess up, you thrust the responsibility onto me and allow me to make those fundamental mistakes so I'll learn on my own and for that I thank you, I love you. You are the reason I am the person I am today, you and you alone. I thank you for being the stability in my life, for being the provider, for staying up until 5am just to make sure that anthology gets finished, for pushing me to bigger and better things. Thank you for letting me live the life I want, for letting me have dreams and for letting me go after those dreams. Happy Mother's Day Ma Ma, I love you.
