I never looked at having a single-parent as a disadvantage, because I got to brag about how awesome my one parent was.

I can’t tell you enough how much it meant to me that you were always next to me with a smile on your face, encouraging me to be the best person I could possibly be.

When I think of my childhood, the first person that always comes to mind is you. Between our stubborn fights and my bratty stage in life, sometimes I don’t understand how you handled it.

To me, you’re not only my mom; you’re the strongest woman I know.You were at every sporting event, competition, school field trip, and many more, and never gave up.And your constant motivation gave me the confidence to accomplish many great tasks in life, and I wouldn’t have done it if it weren’t for you.When I know everything else in my life may not be constant, I know you always will be. It’s more than saying “I love you with all my heart” because that’s still not enough.So here’s to you mom, not only my mom, but my selfless, compassionate, loving, and inspiring single mom. You never gave up on the things that I needed and continued to give me more than I ever deserved.
