I love you so much! I know I do not tell you and/or show you enough but I am so grateful for everything you have done for me. You are not only my mother but my best friend. I call you at least twice a day for nothing at all but for you to hear about my day and to just talk. Any big decision in life, not limited to outfits for my engagement pics, I have to have your input.
With all the sacrifices you have made for me, I hope to one day be half the mother you have been to me. I feel like the luckiest girl to have the relationship I have with you. I know I have never been the easiest individual to deal with and I would like to think I got that from you. I know how to stand up for myself and when to gracefully bow down when I am wrong.
With all of the major life changes and new chapters starting in my life this year I feel like Carrie Underwood's song said it best;
"Mama, you taught me to do the right things.
So, now you have to let your baby fly.
You've given me everything that I will need.
To make it through this crazy thing called life.
And I know you watched me grow up,
and only want what's best for me.
And I think I found the answer to your prayers.
And he Is good, so good.
He treats your little girl,
like a real man should.
He is good, so good.
He makes promises he keeps.
No, he's never gonna leave.
So, don't you worry about me.
Don't you worry about me.
Mama, there's no way you'll ever lose me.
Giving me away is not goodbye.
As you watch me walk down to my future,
I hope tears of joy are in your eyes."
