To raise you to be part of a generation that will do better than the one before it, and make the world itself a better place for everyone. But if I’m being honest here, children, the truth is — you have all made me better. I am better because I now know that the world really will not end if I don’t cook every single night. I am better because I have finally, finally learned that when mama ain’t happy, no one is happy. I am better because I have watched you all do the hard things.
