This book taught me to appreciate my mother, whom I love with all my heart. She gives me everything in her power, and tries her hardest to get me whatever I want that is out of her reach. She does not ask for anything in return, only my happiness, which I have whenever I'm with her. Merci beaucoup, Maman.
