Every day I see you mount an imaginary horse and ride boldly into a place you no longer wish to be.
I see how these last two years have weighed on you and I need you to know that you are not the sum of your life's disappointments.
Do not go into those dark places that haunt you. Someday the light you emit will surround you. It will shine. And in that moment, just as in this one, I will be there.
You are a writer, a singer, a mother, a builder of kindness, and a champion of hope.
You are my dearest friend.
And someday this world will see you as I do.
And you will say:
"Thank God I never gave up!"
