They are all getting big now. Many were bad things, but some were good. I am eternally grateful. Now that I am an adult I understand how great you were. Not the best parenting, especially when you had to wake up early for school the next day. First, I want you to know that I love you very, very much and that will never change, no matter what.

Our relationship had become rocky and I had just given birth to her half-brother. Loving you more than words can ever express. I will mold them. I can still remember you telling me the story of how you were knocked down on the playground in 7th grade.
Thank you for holding me while I cried and promising me that tomorrow would be a better day. They fight, a lot, but they also play well together. I had to wonder if it was a sign from you that you were in heaven.
