I had a face only a Mommy could love! Married by 19. Had me by 20! Thank you for sticking by my side through all the madness, even though u were a baby yourself. You always believed in me. Supported my decisions. Guided me through darkness to find the light. Picked me up when I fell. Kissed me on the head and told me it will be ok. Encouraged me to keep going. Assured me that you will always be there to help me if I needed it and that I have nothing to be afraid of. Taught me not to run with the crowd because I was meant to stand tall, sometimes alone and that I’m a leader not a follower. We have laughed, we have cried, we have been defeated and we’ve won. Through it all, one thing has always remained constant...how amazing you are and how you always impress me! Thank God for making you my mother! You’re 1 in a 1,000,000,000!!
