I have been a Dolly fan ever since I can remember. I remember watching her movies with my grandma and dancing like a fool to 9 to 5 whenever it came on. I have grown up watching her generous ways and her success grow and grow. She has gotten me through many a hard time through her music, words of wisdom, and warm smile. She has been a mother figure for me when there was no other around. She has taught me to always be myself and not let others discourage me in whatever I do, encouraged me to chase my dreams and never give up, and inspired me to do what I love! (sing/songwrite). She also helped me find God at a time when I was lost. I owe a lot to Miss Parton. I am turning 18 years old tomorrow and I have taken today to reflect on the people in my life who I am most grateful for and who have helped shape me into the person I am today. Now, even though I do not personally know Dolly she has impacted my life tremendously (as I am sure she has for most of you). Thank you Dolly Parton, just for being you! Thank you.
I will always love you :)
