20: Our Family
21: Dearest Mom, I know sometimes it may seem that I don't appreciate you and all you have done for me, but that is quite the opposite. I think about how fortunate I am to have a mom like you--someone who has always listened, supported, and accepted me whether or not you agree with my actions--a gift many people aren't given. I know how hard you and Dad worked while I was growing up so that you could provide a good life for me, and you truly accomplished that; you gave me a childhood that I can look back on and remember with fondness in my heart. And even now, as a grown woman, you still take care of and watch out for me just as you did when I was a girl-- another gift that I am thankful for. I know that our relationship may not be perfect, and I can have my "hard-headed" moments, but despite that, I want you to know that I will always feel lucky and grateful that I have you as my mom. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for me and our family! I love you!
