I wanted to say I’m thankful for all you did, and do for me, as without you I would not have learned important things to survive this world. I’m thankful for the many times you sacrificed your time and limited money to help me when I needed it… for your patience through all of the strife we all endured during our upbringing…when I never knew the pain you were going through was even worse than my own.
I’m humbled by your strength to continue on and be the strong woman an amazing mother to us all, always selfless and always kind.
I’m not bitter about all the pain I endured from my father and in fact I forgive him and am thankful for the outcome as I’ve learned many things and how to provide for myself, as well as how to endure sometimes incredible pain to still stand and continue in my beliefs, which is God’s work all the way….he was carrying me most of my life and I never noticed it until just recently, which words cannot describe how I felt when all this hit me on how much he loves each one of us.
I want you to know that it has not gone unnoticed and your gift of teaching me to hold my head high no matter what has been my greatest gift from you or anyone can give.
You taught me strength as well as how to cook, work and encouraged my art during my upbringing when all around us was the dark side that continued to try and beat us down.
Well mom your son has found God and those guardian angels you spoke of daily have brought me to Christ and as I reflect on all of you sacrificed and how much you believed in me through everything I have tears in my eyes and a smile that I have the best mom in the world.
Through God I have a completely new life including I’m in the best physical shape since my 20′s…I’m outside living and seeing the world through Gods eyes and let me tell you its beautiful!
Know you will always be held in a high regard and that I will never forget all you did for me. I will continue to keep you in my prayers and will see you soon mom.
I Love You!
Your Son, Todd
