From a special guest-
What’s your secret?!? How did you manage to love me, nurture me, and teach me when your heart was heavy; when the storms of life were too much to bear? How did you pay for food, water, shelter and school trips, Girl Scout experiences, frilly dresses and those Guess jeans I just had to have when you weren’t getting any help? How did you stay strong for so long? How did you do it?!? All that I am and all that I become I owe to you – every degree, accolade, kudos and honor is all YOURS! You did damn well!
As I embark on the biggest journey of my life – becoming a mother myself – I hope and pray that I can be a fraction of the mother to my son that you were to me! I have to admit that I am scared to death to become a mom! I don’t want to fail! You’ve set the bar high. You strong, beautiful, amazing SINGLE mother You! THANK YOU! So, tell me…what was your secret?
