Today is your birthday and I truly hope it is everything you want it to be and more.
Thanks for always being the determine in life, for keeping my sassy butt in line, and for being protective. Some days I sit back and think about where I would be without and the thought always puts me to tears. Everyone knows I would be incredibly sick still if it wasn't for you being so dead set on being sure I was taken care of. You are my rock, and I pray that you never forget just how much I love you.
Happy birthday, Momma. I wish I could give to you all the things you have for me. That will take my whole life to do so, however.
I love you,
Your baby girl
Y'all, something that has been on my mind a lot recently is the importance of writing letters to people. Don't get me wrong, technology is one of the most enjoyable things we have in 2016, I am not denying that. But there is something to be said about people taking them time to write things down.
Pen to paper.
Growing up, I wanted to have a penpal so badly. Getting to form a friendship using words seemed like the best way to make friends. Then again, I am all about the power of words. What about you?

I couldn't think of what to say about today... So I think I will just say what I did last year:
I've been trying to put my feelings about today into words, but my mind has been on an emotional roller-coaster. My words for how beautiful, special, and brave she was doesn't compare to the example she lead day in and day out. And man was she a good example to follow. But I'll begin with this: Contrary to popular belief, time doesn't heal the wounds of loosing someone you love.
Today I am reminded to love the people around me for you truly never know when they won't be around to show love to anymore.
"You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
at best, each of us is but a breath."
-Psalm 39:5 NLT
I am so glad you stopped by. I cannot wait to hear from you!
