UGH!!! So I cried while typing it and just could get sappy enough but I think she will cry through the whole thing... What do you guys think?
I just wanted to take this day to thank you for being my mother, I know we have our ups and downs but I will always be your daughter. We have been through a lot together as you brought me up from a spitfire little girl to a strong, independent young woman that I am today. One day I will leave your wing and fly away on my own and I am fully confident that I will have strong wings thanks to you. I know I am gone a lot, off with boyfriends, working, going to college, but if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have any of those things. I sometimes wondered growing up, why I didn’t have a father when everyone else did but I know it’s because those other people needed both a mother and father to be strong enough to bring them up, I didn’t, I just needed you.
I want you to know that no matter where I go in life and what happens, I will always be your daughter and you will always be my mother and no one can come between that. One day I may be a mother and I know I will come to you to help me become half the mother you are. Also know that if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have any of the opportunities that I have now, I wouldn’t be having to figure out whether I should continue college or take the degree; I wouldn’t have my car, I’d be stuck working full-time at a dead end job. It’s because of you that I want to become strong, independent and secure in my future. I truly hope you see how wonderful you are as a mother. You are my backbone, I know I always have a home and a shoulder when I need it and even if I am out on my own with my own family; I will always look to you for advice.
You are my hero, mom and no matter where I go in life,I will always be your daughter and I will always love you."
