Happy Birthday ami
Thank you for being the best mother you could have been given your wounds and challenges
Teenagers are difficult to parent and given my wounds and challenges I'm doing the best I can with my kid
Some days you failed
Some days as a mother I fail too
But as a mother I have learned something I could not have learned as a daughter
I love my daughter...
and I'm doing the best I can giving her everything I've got...
and some days it's not enough...
or even what she needs...
and some days I don't know how to give her what she needs!
And yet I know without a doubt I do it all out of love for her
Because I love her...
As a mother I now know you love your daughter too
As a daughter, to you my mother, know I love you endlessly
I always have
Even on days I hated you
I hated you because I loved you
