So this weekend was graduation weekend. I waited what,12 years for this? It finally came and i am free from highschool! But i never really thought back to how i really got this far. During the graduation comencment one of our senior speakers was talking about who was to thank for all the success we have come across. She told us she wanted to thank her mother. As she does, so do i. Without my mommy i would have never found my lost doll, wouldnt have had bandaids on my booboos and my hair would still be a rats nest. She taught me that the fights i get into now wont mean anything in the long run, that i need to take bigger steps and experience new things,but most of all she tought me how to find myself. I used to want to blend in and i judged everyone who wasnt like me. As i grew older, with my moms help, i have learned that we dont know what other people are going through at home or when no one is watching. They may just need a friend or someone to talk to. She has tought me quite a bit in the 17 years I've been under her roof.

Like they all say "like mother like daughter"
(or vice versa)(see picture above ;])

Mom, thank you so much for everything you do and have done. I will never forget it even when i leave for college. I will be back, not just when the fridge is full and the laundry room is empty, but when i miss my mommy. I know you will always be here for me no matter how old i get. Thanks for being the goofy mom you are :)
