Happy Birthday Courtney
I cannot believe that tomorrow you will be 17.
That means I have one year left to teach you before you are officially an adult.
You have become my friend. You are the one who knows what I am saying with just a look and no words. You immediately hug me when you see me. I am proud of the person you are becoming.
This last year you have excelled at school. Even with a global pandemic you learned how to do online classes (this will only help you in the future!), manage your time, be more creative, and connect with your friends without being able to see them.
Being your mom has been my greatest treasure in life. I love you.
