Thank you for being an amazing role model. Watching you as a little girl gave me strength I wouldn't understand until I became a woman. I naturally became independent, driven and a force to be reckoned with. That's because I watched you as a little girl and learned from you.
You never depended on anyone. You did everything on your own. You had hard days and good days but no matter the days you always smiled and took care of us kids the best way you could.
You made me want to be a good change in this world. You gave me a smile that no one can take away. You gave me passion.
Thank you, Mom, for helping me grow into an inspiring, motivating and empowering woman. Every day I want to be an example of you. Every day I want to be a role model for other women and girls like you were and still are for me.
Mom, women are changing this world, and in my eyes that's a big thanks to you.
I love you over the moon, under the sun, and in and out of the stars.
