I would like to take a moment to give thanks to all the benevolent Gods and Forces which brought such a wonderful person into my life. A woman who was first a boss, a tentative friend, a good sister, and finally the mother of my heart. She laughed with me, cried with me, screamed and raged with me, and ultimately taught me what a family can be.
This woman who has picked me up when I fell, prayed for me when I hurt, sternly corrected me when I went astray, and always kept my well-being forefront in her mind, is now the recipient of MY prayers. The woman who always seemed so like a rock with her steady hand and solid footing, is after all made of flesh.
I would never have made it so far without this wonderful spirit, and I thank the fate that put her in my path.
Moon Mullens, my lucky penny and my shining northern star, may all of your dreams come true, and may happiness overflow from your heart. You have touched me more deeply than you know, and I will forever be in debt to your kindness.
