I'm not sure you'll ever know how much I appreciate you. I know I say thank you, but you take a lot of shit from me too. So I don't think you can every truly understand just how lucky I feel to have you in my life. You are one of a kind. You are selfless. You do so much more for me than you need to.
No doubt I wouldn't have survived these first three months of Elsie's life without you. Well, I maybe would have survived, but it wouldn't have been pretty. You've stepped in for me, giving Ryann the love and attention she was craving when I just couldn't give it. You've picked up the slack where I was lacking elsewhere. Without you around, I'm fairly confident I would have slumped into a depression. You have been the best shoulder to lean on. I can never ever thank you enough for that.
Thank you for raising me to be the woman I am. And the mother I am. You mean the world to me. Even when my words and actions don't show it, know that I am so incredibly grateful that you are my mother. I love you.
Happy Mother's Day.
please excuse Ryann's awkwardness :o)
