My beloved Mom,

I remember it was just a few years ago when I was ready to nominate myself for the biggest coward in the world. I was literally afraid of everything. Even with my great dreams of travelling and getting to know new people around the world, the fear in me always stopped me from pursuing these things.
But there you were, the one that never looked at me with disappointment in your eyes and the one who always told me that the time will come when I will feel really ready.
And your words came true…the right time really came.
I think that, if I had no person like you next to me, I would never have been able to do it. You are the one who never gave up on me, even when I did. You always see the best in me and give me the courage to continue when life gets difficult.

I want to thank you for everything you are doing for me and that you stand by me at all times, especially when I am having my meltdowns 😀
I know that parents are supposed to help their children in every situation, but it is not always happening. I am so grateful that I have a Mom like you because you are also like a best friend to me and I can count on you every time.
You are my confidence, strength and inspiration. You are the first person I ask for an advice, and the one person I look up to. You are my life idol.

Love you with all my heart,
Your Ivi
