ode to mom

Mamacita,

I am so deeply grateful for you. 
You cheer me when I need it, and even when I think I don't.
You hold me when I need to be held, and even when I think I don't.
You praise me when I need praise, and even when I think I don't.
You challenge me when I need to be challenged, and even when I think I don't.
You support me when I need it, and even when I think I don't.
You love me when I need love, and even when I think I don't.
You worry about me when I need to be worried about, and even when I don't.
And as I sit here reflecting in gratitude for what you are to me, I realize just how important those times are where you stood by me when I thought I didn't need someone to.
I love you, mama… even when you think I don't.
