To simply say thank you, just wouldn’t be enough. The strength in the word woman defines you. Every positive quality, every mention of grace and love, you represent it all. You are a walking Mother’s day and I celebrate, appreciate and acknowledge you daily.
Because you’re a great woman of worth, I’m a great man of worth.
It was your vision that aided my dreams, your support that allowed me to go out and impact the world, and your faith that I knew I will become successful one day. Great men don’t do great things alone, it takes women like you – to push us, challenge us, inspire us and build us up when we’re in doubt, when we’re going through hard times and when we need to regain focus.
You are my queen. You are my favorite person. You are my best friend. You are my mother.
You helped me become the great person I am today.
I made and make mistakes, I have flaws, and I made and make errors in judgment. And there’s still so much I don’t know about life. There’s so much I’ve yet to learn and discover about my path. There’s so much I’ve yet to see, but one thing is for sure; I know love when I see it. I know what love does for people. I know how it changes them. I recognize the growth it requires, I acknowledge the giving it inspires and I’ve experienced and witnessed your love my whole life. I know love. And everyday I recognize it in you. I Am Love because you are love.
I understand the selflessness that allowed you to share your heart to the world. My dreams is the reflection of your love and faith. My work is the result of your respect for my passion. My legacy is founded on the genuineness of your love and support. I wouldn’t have had this beautiful life of greatness, if I didn’t have you.
Great women have this mystery about them. And one thing you’ve shown me about great women is that they don’t have to say anything, they just have the power to make their presence alone speak volumes. You never stop giving, even when you’re feeling unappreciated, even when you’re getting taken for granted, you continue to love. God knows you’re a great woman.
I appreciate the greatness in you. I appreciate you loving a man and believing in him enough to stay there, I appreciate you loving me, my sister and my brother and raising us right to the best of your abilities. I appreciate you giving, selflessly. You’ve never reminded us of what you lost, you’ve just chosen to live in love, and because you’ve done that, and continue to do that, I grew to be just like you and I’m able to call myself love today.
I am eternally grateful.
Love your son,
