I know we’ve had our differences in the past, particularly when I was a troubled teen… but you stuck by me. And for that I thank you. As I grow older and get just a smidge wiser, I realise more and more just what a wonderful person you are and how lucky I am to have such a strong, caring and selfless person as my Mother.
I also want to say that while I don’t have many regrets in my life (because I insist on not having any) there is one thing I can’t help but regret, and that’s how careless I’ve been with money. So much so that now as an adult, I am unable to help you and Dad financially like you continually do with your family – even though you don’t really have enough for yourself. I only hope that it’s not too late for me to get back on track to following in your footsteps.
But for now… I just want to wish you all the best that this day and year can bring. Because you only deserve the best.
