To my Queen. The woman full of sass and low tolerance to the BS. The woman who will give you the shirt off her back and love you unconditionally. The woman who has shown me what it means to be selfless and still be able to take care of your own. To the woman who gave me life and vowed to take care of me even if her life depended on it. To the lady who has done everything in her power to raise two strong, beautiful women on her own, all I can is… Thank you. Thank you for being the woman that you are, the mother that you are, and the amazing grandmother that you are to your grandchildren. I can go into detail for ALL the things you have done for your family but I just want you to know that your hard work has not gone unnoticed. You are so STRONG beyond measures. With the challenges you face in life you have remained nostalgic and optimistic about everything. You’re such a warrior, you’re a leader, you’re indestructible, and you have this strength that no one can define because they aren’t you. You have made sacrifices for your children not realizing that you were teaching us how to be amazing partners to our future mates and strong mothers to the blessings that came into our lives.
You are my best friend. You are the first person I call and the last one I talk to. We have a bond to where we both confide in each other about relationships, me raising my daughter, to our future plans. You don’t know how many women would love to have you as a mom and I’m glad to have you to myself, well kind of lol. I always say for all the things you have done for me I don’t know how I can repay you. Even though I’m still trying to figure that out in the meantime I’m going to do my best to represent you. During my teenage years I truly gave you a run for your money but you never stopped loving me nor loved me any less. You’ve accepted my flaws and loved me unconditionally. You’ve made mistakes as a mom but it hasn’t made a difference in how much I love you. It did give me the understanding that you are human. You’re strict parenting has shaped my ways, my morals, how I treat myself and how I treat others. Even though you was considered the “cool mom” you was still the strict mom but I am not regretful for having a mother who cared about her children’s future. I thank God every day that I have you as a mother. I wouldn’t dare change you or even try to replace you.
My mother is my precious gem. She is my rock. In my eyes she can move mountains and make a way out of no way. She has shown me what it means to be humble and to live in my truth. She has taught me that I don’t have to always brag about myself and to just simply let people see for themselves. She’s my SURVIVOR. She’s my one and only. She’s all I got and I love her to the moon and back. I celebrate my mother 365 days 24/7.
