Thank You

All I Need....is my mom. 

That may be unusual but... 

I wouldn't have the confidence in myself,

I wouldn't have my strong morals, 

I wouldn't know how to express myself, 

And I wouldn't be who I am without her. 

 

She gave me confidence by...

Listening to my fears 

And dispelling them. 

Listening to my insecurities

And telling me they weren't true. 

Listening to my dreams 

And encouraging me to go for them.

 

She taught me morals by…

Teaching me how to act

And correcting me when I was wrong. 

Opening me up to different perspectives

And allowing me to choose.

Showing me how strong morals create a strong woman

And guiding me into her footsteps.

 

She showed me how to express myself by…

Teaching me how to communicate

And allowing me to practice.

Telling me that my opinions matter

And letting me share them.

Becoming my confidant

And allowing me to confide. 

 

But most importantly… She shaped who I am. 

 

She taught me that a strong belief in oneself was necessary.

She taught me honesty, love, respect, and responsibility.

She taught me that expression is important.

 

And by teaching me all of this… She made me into the person I am. 

Without her, I wouldn't be who I am.

And that is why she is all I need.
