You have been a source of inspiration to me, you are strong, resilient, kind, beautiful, loving, wonderful, patient, understanding and calm. You are fierce, courageous and firm yet gentle. I sometimes wonder how you combine so much characters. You are highly exceptional Mummy.
"You have come through for my family and I in ways i can’t begin to mention. You have shown me nothing but love .. You have taken a stand for me and fought many battles on my behalf, even battles that i am unaware of. You would go any length to make sure that i am well and fine.
"You show up for me.. like the sun and you show up really bright. I am a better person today because i have a Mother like you. There are days when i doubt my self, you never stop encouraging and pushing me to do better. You believe so much in me, that i sometimes can not understand why?
"You are an epitome of beauty and strength! You are the definition of a virtuous woman. You lead your home with integrity and discipline."
