Thank you for teaching me that it's important to put the needs of others before your own. You have instilled in me the importance of selflessness and charity.
Thank you for loving our family unconditionally. You are the backbone of our home and the glue that keeps us together. We would be nothing without your tough love and affection. Your children love you a lot, though sometimes we’re dumb kids and don’t show it or say it half as much as we should.
Thank you for being strong. You are an inspiration to me and you have showed me the valuable lesson of keeping my head up.
Thank you for letting me know that you’re always there to talk – I’m sorry I didn’t come to you more. I know you’re just a phone call away, and that brings me more comfort than you could ever imagine.
Thank you for showing me that a strong woman is something I need to constantly work towards becoming.
Thank you for loving me for me.
I’m sorry for arguing with you. I’m sorry for being stubborn. I’m sorry for those times that I gave you and dad a headache. Thank you for being forgiving and for allowing me to make my own mistakes.
Most importantly, thank you for showing me the type of mother I would like to be.
Your eldest daughter
