Thank you for not giving in when you knew what was best, even when I threw a royal fit about my curfew; I understand now that you were protecting me.
Thank you for “making” me doing hard things even when I really really didn’t want to; I know now that you were preparing me to succeed in life.
Thank you for being consistent in living the gospel, even though waking me up at 6am for family scripture study was probably the worst part of both of our days; I know now you were helping me develop righteous habits.

I hope to be half the mother that you are to me. You are a source of strength and stability. You are an example of faithfulness and obedience. You may not be perfect (yet!), but you are the perfect mother for me.
All of my love and thanks,
Your oldest child,
