I don't think I could love a human more than you. You have been my rock. You loved me through all the craziness that has gone into these 31 years. I was a crazy child with lots of energy so thank you for not giving me away and holding me tight and giving me all the love a daughter could ask for. No matter what was going on, you made it a point to spend quality time with us every weekend. Roller skating, pool days, DQ ice cream stops, taking Jackie and I to the educational store so we could buy teacher supplies that you knew were going to be completely wasted on imaginary students, and endless amounts of memories I cherish.
You cheered me on at my highest moments in life and loved me at my lowest. You told me I am beautiful when I didn't think it was true. You've grown a confident women that lives with integrity and grace and I have you to thank for leading by example.
I know I have the best mom in the world. I am the luckiest girl.
I love you
