In honour of your birthday, I am writing a blog to you. Honestly, whenever I think of you I become speechless. You are someone who has made the most powerful impact on me as a woman in my life. I don’t know how long this blog is suppose to be, but honestly I just love talking about you, I love thinking about you, writing about you and telling people about you. You’re such a beautiful human being.
With Auntie Kathy being here, it gives me the oppurtunity to learn more about you every time. I always feel closer to you when she’s around. I adore how she tells me that I’m exactly like you, all the stories of how I’m literally a mini you, how I look like you, do the same gestures as you and make the same decisions in life as you did as a teenager. Before MSA was in your system, before all the symptoms were apart of your everyday life, it HAS NOT effected the way you are as the beautiful soul you are, just your physical abilities. Who was brought into this world was Karen Samuel. My mom, my world. The one who is outgoing, lovable, caring, generous, sweet, sensitive, stubborn, and I don’t care how many times I say the word but beautiful.
Through life, I remember that I have you in my life and that when times are tough that I will get through anything because I want to be exactly like you.
I want you to know that Carter is my best friend, my other half, I do not know what I would do without him, and you are the number one thing in our lives keeping us together and will keep us close for hopefully the rest of our lives. The best gift in life that you have ever given me has been my little brother. Mom, I want to live for you, I want to tell your story, I want people to know about you because you are a story worth telling a million times.
I just want to say how thankful I am to have you as my mom, I wouldn’t want anything else, you have given me so many memories to remember you from and shown me how to be as a woman, of course I wish we could do a little more but just being able to see you and talk to you has been such an important part of my life. I know you can’t talk back to me but I know your always listening and I can always see it in your eyes when I’ve done good and even when maybe not so much. I just want to thank you for being the person you are today, and I promise I never try to let you down. I got this mom, and so do you, and so do we, and so does Carter. We got this for you.
Thank you for being here for my little brother and I, I know it’s hard but you are the strongest mom I know and that has made Carter and I see the world in a whole different way and I could never thank you enough for the love that you have provided us. I love you Mom and I’ll always be your little girl. Happy Birthday.
