A thank you will never truly suffice for all the things you've done for me. From day one you've been my biggest cheerleader and my best friend. Every day you constantly are there for me to lean on, to be my shoulder to cry on. I wouldn't be pursuing my love for writing if it wasn't for you pushing me to better myself every day.
You're my best friend. Many people say their mom is their best friend, but you're my soul sister. You've been there to pick me up when I needed it most, and help me make some hard decisions. You're the first person I want to tell everything to, whether it be good news or bad. Momma, regardless of any mistake I've made you've loved me unconditionally, even when I know I didn't deserve it.
You've taught me how to be strong when it's not the easiest thing to do. Momma you're the strongest person I know and you've taught me how to be strong like you. Through every hard time, you've never sat and wallowed, you've pulled yourself together and come out stronger than anyone else ever could. You've always worked so hard to give us everything possible. You say it's not enough, but it's more than enough. You continuously give to us so selflessly, and that's taught me real love and compassion.
As I've grown up I've come to realize that you've taught me so many lessons, and without those I wouldn't be who I am today. You showed me what it's like to give your 100 percent towards anything you want in life. You showed me that not everyone in life is a good person, but that it's okay to think so until proven otherwise. You've shown me how important it is to take care of the things in life that are most important to you because those are the only things that truly matter in life. You've paved the way for me as an amazing role model, you're everything I aspire to be in life. I hope that I can be at least half the mom you are some day.
My most important thank you is for what you've given me this past year. When I started packing for college, I dreaded saying goodbye to you. I knew that this goodbye was something I would never be ready for. As I got closer to move-in day, I realized that this goodbye would be the worst. Saying goodbye to my best friend was going to kill me. I was petrified knowing that I would be in a completely new place without you by my side. When you left me at school I was miserable. Even though we talked every day I still felt like something was missing without you there.
I couldn't be happier to be home with you for the summer. But when summer comes to a close I'll have to say another extremely hard goodbye. No matter how close or far we are you're still my number 1. I love you forever. I like you for always. As long as I'm living my momma you'll be.
