Neish,

Do you know how beautiful you are, I mean like really beautiful?!? Your smile is electrifying, and your personality just radiates in a room. Don’t ever let go of that, because that is where your beauty lies. I know things haven’t always been easy, and the love from others has been disappointing, but nobody loves you more than me. I was once confused on how to love you, how to accept you; but I’m older, wiser, and I know just how to love you. How to love every imperfection and flaw. I know how to allow all of your great qualities and attributes to speak for you, so your mouth doesn’t have to. Look at how far you’ve come and all your accomplishments. You’ve really made me proud. I know there’s more to achieve, but I love you for even getting yourself this far. Remember the days you prayed for what you have now? You’ve been mistreated, you’ve been neglected, you’ve even tried giving up on yourself (I was really sad about that), but you never let any of it stop you. Neish, you’ve been a friend to others in need, you’ve helped your family when possible, and even strangers without ever expecting anything in return. That’s a great quality to have, because people tend to forget how to be human sometimes. You’ve always cherished those who chose to be in your life, and the gift of time. Time is invaluable and you respect those who choose to share moments with you. So whenever you start to feel like you’re lacking in the love department...don’t look to others, just look in the mirror and know that nobody loves you more than me. No one ever will.

Love Neish
