How many times have I introduced a crazy plan or strange idea with
the words: “Hey Mamá?” Yet, how many countless times have
you humored me. You’ve tutored me. You’ve helped me to believe that
my wildest dreams are possible if
I will “Be intentional.” Because of what you do,
I cannot help but notice
the steppingstones you intentionally placed in my life.
Like constellations in the dark, each spark of kindness, of love, of patience pinpoints out the
parent hero, you are. At least
to me and anyone who will know you. Could never have gotten far without your support, so
Thank you for your wisdom and for all
you overcame so I could dream as big as I do.
