Mom always told me, “live your life like there is no tomorrow. If you’re not happy, change your life to make it happy. Have no regrets, hold no grudges. Love with your whole heart! This is your life, only you can live it. Learn from the trials you endure throughout your life. Don’t judge others unless you’ve been walking in their shoes. Baby girl, this is your life, go live it! Who cares what others think; they haven’t walked in your shoes! I love you, daughter, and I’m very proud of you!!
