To the woman who has taught me how to be strong, independent, kind, respectful, generous and forgiving. Who taught me how to love passionately, fight for what I deserve, never give up on any goal I set or dream I pursue. Who taught me how to laugh at myself, how to laugh at the curves life throws you, how to laugh so hard that you cry. How to cry so hard that you laugh.
To the woman who has taught me how to make a home, how to fill a home with love – how to be a home within yourself. How to love food, love cooking and love to feed every mouth that walks into the kitchen. How to fill a freezer with so much homemade food that you’ll have enough to feed every mouth that walks into your kitchen from now until Christmas of next year.
To the woman who has taught me the true meaning of marriage and the power of unconditional love. Who has taught me the strength of a family and the real definition of being a good friend. Who has taught me the importance of being your own best friend.
To the woman who has taught me so much, yet continues to teach me something new every day. To the woman who has ultimately set the finest example of a everything a human being – let alone a woman – can be:
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I love you.
