By the time I'd heard the words, "You can't," I was old enough to know better. For as long as I can remember I could build, dig, defend, ski, compete, speak my mind and keep up with just about anyone. Thank you for your confidence in me.
Thank you for your non-judgmental conversations, even when it must have been hard to bite your lip.
Thank you for your unconditional support and the accompanying faith that, as I grew, I was trying to making the best decisions I could with what limited information and experience I had.
You've taught me to be a good listener, a good thinker and to take responsibility for my decisions. As I grow, as I've taken well-thought-out risks, it's a joy to be taking responsibility for such decisions, as they have led to many enriching, enlightening and amazing places.
There's a lot of you in me.
