For my mom, who I love AND respect!
1. That true beauty comes from the glow within, and not from a face full of make-up. That my worth and self-esteem come from inside of me, not from what I look like.
2. To stand in the face of adversity and fight for what I believe in, even if no one else agrees.
3. How to cultivate a sense of childlike wonder, awe and appreciation from small things.
4. How to laugh so hard that tears run down my face.
5. The power of faith and spirit.
