I'm proud of myself, for the person I have become. But more importantly I'm proud of the guidance I've received over the years from my mother. Her heart and her wisdom has given me the strength to deal with this over the years, and i couldn't have asked for a better 18 years! No one from my family even called today to so much as to see how I was doing, but that's ok...I'M STILL STANDING TALL! I don't pull the "feel sorry for Amber card." I just keep living life as usual, and keep thanking God for all the blessings I continue to receive! SOOO...to my mother (who's probably correcting God's english haha), HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
