Throughout life, we meet so many different people, each one holding a specific meaning and position in our lives. Each person is beneficial to us, and can come and go, or can stay for the rest of our lives. It all depends on their purpose.

As we all go through life, we hold our own purpose. The purpose to create a better life for those around us and for ourselves.

I’ve had the blessing to meet this one incredibly important person in my life, and she’s transformed me into the successful woman I am today.

This woman has been through hell and has pulled herself out of the dirt when all throughout her life was wondering why. Why me? Why do I have to go through this? Up until the point where she realized it happened for a reason. The reason you ask has a lot to do with me.

Throughout all her good and bad experiences, she guides me in the ways I need to strive forward and become something more powerful. Someone guided. Someone bright and someone who tackles the obstacles around her with great strength.

This woman means so much to me, so much that without her in my life, I do not know who or where I’d be. This miraculous woman has come into my world at an unexpected moment, but to this day, I am ever so grateful for her.

When I lost that motherly touch with my mother, she stepped in. When I needed guidance from someone who has been through the exact same stress and managed to come out on top, she was there.

She is always there. She puts me first.

I have grown to be a successful, independent woman who doesn’t put up with people’s BS. I have grown to follow my heart and relax when things don’t go my way. I have learned to trust the universe and take every opportunity that comes with a great deal of appreciation.

I have learned to embrace my abilities and trust that I am good, that I can do great things, and that I will. I have learned to be me, and be more than happy with the outcome.

This woman — you know who you are — will forever have a large part of my heart. I hope to never lose you and that we continue to help each other in the most important ways we need to grow.

I am ever so thankful you have come into my life and have changed me into a better person.

I have never completely thanked you for this important new life you have given me, for your endless amount of support and the way you transform me into... me.

I love you with all my heart. I do not know what I would do without you and I just wanted to send you a reminder of how much you mean to me. How much you being you impacts my life, how your love completes my heart and allows for myself to feel complete.

For how incredible you are, how brilliant you are, how insanely demanding your ambition to change your life and to do incredible things, how all these things make me want to be like you, to have that same ambition.

I am so blessed to have you as the mom I always needed, and can never thank you enough for everything you do.

I love you so much!
