To My Mom...

Dear Mom,

I am glad you are my mom... Since dad passed you and I have gotten so much closer... Not only are we a mother and daughter... We are friends... I love the special moments you and I have shared together... You inspire me to be a better person with your quick smile.. random texts... always positive attitude.. always forgiving heart.. never judging... You let me know that you are always there for me... Anytime... Anywhere.. I love that you "like" many of my statuses and/or comments on Face Book - this let's me know that you are thinking about me... loving me...

You amaze me... You have not had an easy life... The past several years have been especially hard for you... Taking care of dad in his final years here on Earth... Becoming diabetic, Your fractured bones (shame on Curves)... Working hard at your job... The loneliness of not having dad to talk to at night.... and now you are battling breast cancer... I am so sorry that you have had to go through all this... I am so sorry that I have not always been there for you... And in the middle of all this - You are more concerned with your kids... You have not once - felt sorry for yourself (most people would).. You have not once given up... You are a fighter... A true Lady...

Tomorrow you are going into surgery to remove your breasts... I am hopeful that by tomorrow night you will be completely cancer free... I want you to know that I am there for you... I will Always be there for you.. in person.. in spirit.. in thoughts.. and in prayers... You will fight this.. You will win... I have no doubt... I hope that your recovery will be speedy... and if it's not... You have your daughters... granddaughters.. friends to help you get by... And we want to be there with you.. We choose to be with you... You are NOT alone...

Thank you for being my mom... I love you....
