  • someone who loves unconditionally and completely and shows it in her daily words and actions; loves God and her family; has your back no matter what; will tell you the hard stuff because you need to hear it; take you down a peg when you think you know it all; and will wipe your tears when you go back to apologize; someone who teaches you respect, kindness, honesty, and compassion; shows pride in your accomplishments and hurt in your pain; is your fiercest supporter; and hardest taskmistress. The one who will give you her all and all she has to give and if it meant dying so that you could live; would die gladly and happy in the knowledge that because of you she has left this world a nicer place.
