I wish you could see what others see when they look at you. The goodness, the kindness, the compassion. The way you reach out to those in need to let them know they aren’t alone. You are a light to all you meet and a beacon of hope and happiness in this world.
Always remember that the tools needed to make change lie within you. You are strong and brave, yet humble enough to endure your struggles with patience.
You have walked a road that not many your age have walked. You’ve had to learn lessons that many twice your age are still learning. I’ve watched you struggle, then come out conqueror, and fall, only to get back up running. I pray that your tenacity and endurance will see you through all life throws your way.
Thank you for being you. Because being you is more than enough.
