To My Mom

I love you. 
Live life with no regrets and know that everything happens for a reason.  Because of this I am strong, independent and would not change a thing.  I once wrote, 

"I am becoming much greater than the idealistic version of whom you think I am. 

I am a woman that grew up being broken down, only to evolve into a person that has more strength and determination than any man you will meet. A man could never give me what I need, because those are things that only I can obtain on my own.

 I bare the name that was given to me at my birth not of my father or my ex lover, but a name that has been passed down from woman to woman. I am Amanda Delight and I am walking away from love and running with my dreams...and ladies, you can do it too!"

Mom, I know that if you could go back in time, you would do things differently...but I wouldnt want you to.  My past has made me who I am to help build my future.  Whether we can control that or not, thats what destiny is.  

You always were my life line, even though you where half way around the world at times.  And all of these years later and only 12 miles away, you still are.  I honestly dont know what I would do without you. I thank God for you and I am proud to have you as my mother.
