Mom, I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate you, and all you have done for me. I know that I haven't been easy to raise, but you managed to do that well. At times I know you felt like a failure, becuase of mistakes I made, and because of the hard times we've gone through. But you have done more for me than I could have ever asked of you. You helped me through life's problems, you've helped me overcome so many things. And even now, you are still there for me.

You understand me in a way that no other person could. Sometimes it's scary, but it helps a lot. I know I'm difficult, and I'm stubborn. And I know I've put you through a lot of pain. I'm sorry for that, I'm sorry for all the things I've said that I didn't mean. Thank you for not giving up on me, even when things seemed that they would never get better.

Hrm, I'm not exactly sure what I want this page to say, and I guess that's why I'm having such trouble finding the words to write. I know that I could never thank you enough, never show you how much I appreciate you, never begin to tell you how much you mean to me. You are someone that I can look up to, as a mother, as a person, as a friend. And I am so happy I have you in my life. Thank you for everything.

I love you
