It’s not a thing I couldn’t live without, but a person. The person that I will forever have a special bond with because we are one of the same. Though we may argue almost all the time, know that at the end of the day she is the one who will always have my back. That person is my mother. Without you mom I wouldn’t be where I am now. Thank you for all of the time you put my needs first, all the times you went without so that I could, all the time you pushed me to go farther when I just wanted to give, and for all the times that I know you will continue to do and be there for me in the future. Thank you for all the talk we have, just about the little things. Thank you for being there to hold me when I would have nightmares and wake up in tears. Mommy I love you with all my heart. Though I may not show you all the time, and though sometimes I make you feel as though you failed as a parent I will show you that you actually have succeeded. Thank you, to the person that I couldn’t live without.
