The time zoning makes it difficult; but I haven’t forgotten.
So today is your birthday and I forgot you would be a day ahead so I failed to call or Skype but I hope this makes up for it slightly.
I cannot express how much I miss you and the rest of our family. I was attempting to buy you a present but upon consultancy with Wade he said he would take care of it so I didn’t have to worry about shipping. I hope whatever he got you was nice.
Enough of the niceties; I’m going to take this opportunity to thank you and appreciate you for everything you have done for me and helped me with.
I know that you have trouble seeing it sometimes but I really do appreciate you, more so now that I can see the family from a distance and what we are and what we would do for each other.
I want to thank you for giving me the courage and strength to be myself and make it over here. I feel my development as a person in the last year leading up to this can greatly be attributed by the wind that you put beneath me that helped me along.
I would like to thank you for supporting me in whatever I want to do and encouraging me to go on even when I feel I cannot which ultimately makes me better.
I want to thank you for just existing as a person and the way in which you do that. Unapologetically Yourself. This serves as the greatest role model I could have to not bend to anyone’s will, to be me no matter what. And that sometimes causes problems but in the end there is no other way to live.
Thank you so much I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope you know how much I love you.
Every time think of pineapple lumps I think of you. Which is now slightly ironic. Xx
