To my two precious sons, for whom I am most grateful.
Blake, you were entrusted to me when I was only 18 years old, an anchor for my soul from the moment you were born.
TJ, you came along six years later, a buoy to keep my soul afloat during the storms brewing in my horizon.
Both of you enlightened me with unconditional love, despite my shortcomings as a mother, as a person. Loving you enabled me to forgive and love others when I did not want to. Being loved by you enabled me to forgive and love myself when I did not want to.
Raising you brought purpose to my life, a purpose I needed to carry on from day to day, through the struggles.
Thank you boys, for choosing to be good kids, fine young men, even when you had so many excuses and reasons to be bad. I am so proud of the young men you both have become.
You fill my heart!
Dream big Blake and TJ! Always dream big! You can do anything you set your minds to in this life!
To my husband, my best friend, my soul mate, my safe place.
Clay, in your loving embrace, I found the liberty to be ‘me’.
Thank you my darling, for loving ‘me’.
