You've help me grow into the person I am today. You've taught me how to start from the bottom and go to the top. You've watched my mother and I go from yelling and screaming on daily basic to learning how to work side by side and separate family vs work. You've watched me fail. You've watched me cry. You've watched me yell. You've watched achieve. You taught me to laugh, to live and have fun! You've watched me over come fear. Lastly, you've taught me who I am and what I want to be. For that I will be forever thankful.

I hope my next 10 years are just as fun.
