Today marks 52 years of planet earth being blessed with the presence of such a strong, caring, thoughtful, bighearted, compassionate and gentle woman, who I am so deeply blessed to call Mother.

Mom, I can’t imagine life without you. Needless to say, without you I wouldn’t be where I am today (literally- giggle).  You’ve always been an outstanding role model who has shown me an infinite amount of love and understanding; and even though I’m a grown, 30-year old woman now, your love and understanding never ceases to exist. You, mom, never cease to amaze me, and for that I want to say Thank you.

Thank you

Thank you for being so selfless. You’ve always put me and my siblings above everything else, even at times where you, yourself needed to be put first.

Thank you for the never ending, unconditional love you have for me. You have shown this continuously for 30 years without interruption.

Thank you for putting on a brave face in the hardest of times. You’ve been through the most and still, always, no matter what, try to smile through it all for us. This does not go unnoticed.

Thank you for nagging me to death as a kid and as a grown up. Your nagging irritates the hell out of me (I won’t lie) but I couldn’t imagine life without it- without you.

Finally, thank you for being my best friend. I feel so honoured to have a mother who I can speak to about absolutely anything without being judged. I wouldn’t trade the relationship we share for anything in this world.

I love you

I love you for giving me life, for giving my siblings life and just being YOU. I love your cooking, how you let me shop for groceries in your house and always manage to laugh about it. I love how you’re forever forthcoming when I need you, no matter what your schedule is like.

I love you for sacrificing so much just so that I can have so much. I love how pure your heart is and how you love me unconditionally. I have never loved anyone like I love you and I can confidently say that I love myself because you have shown me how to be loved.

I am so blessed to have been raised by you and I can only hope to grow up to be half the incredible woman that you are. You deserve so much more than I have given you because of everything you have given me.

Happy Birthday to my role model, best friend, companion, mentor, and life-giver!

My love for you is immaculate!
