I've never met a woman like you that does it as you do -- how you love yourself, your partner and your children so well.
I've never met a woman like you that does it as you do -- killin' it in the bedroom, boardroom, courtroom, classroom, at the PTA meeting, in the gym, or inside your home.
I've never met a woman like you that does it as you do -- taking on every challenge, situation or two-legged -- with the patience of a saint.
I've never met a woman like you that does it as you do -- finding the holy grail of balance between work, family life, social responsibilities, and community involvement.
Do you know I admire you?
Do you know that you motivate me?
Do you know that you inspire me to give more, do more and quite frankly, BE MORE?
Yeah, you -- the one in the mirror.
You don't see what I see, and that's a real shame, but let me fill you in on a little secret:
There is not another woman in this world that does it as you do.
That gets out of bed each day, with a beastly plan to courageously take on whatever life decides to send her way.
That rises with a mentality focused on compassion and gratitude.
That methodically (or let's be real, sometimes haphazardly) ensures the well-being of those in her care -- the one she married, the ones she birthed and the four-legged, furry ones.
That gives more than she thinks is capable and takes less than she needs if ever the opportunity.
That speaks on what's important and does so with the utmost respect for those around her.
That listens intently and stays engaged to ensure she fully processes others' words -- even those drawn-out ramblings of an excitable toddler -- being spoken to her.
That often finds a reason to smile and laugh and then makes sure to pay that genuine joy forward.
That feels and loves hard, just like a human being should.
That hits her head on the pillow every night fully aware that she gave the day her all and that she will wake tomorrow, the next day, and here on out, to do it all over again.
Yeah, you -- you exceptional, unequaled, remarkable soul.
I've never met a woman like you that does it as you do and let me remind you of this:
You do it damn well, AND you look good doing it.
