Captioning the sweet snaps, she wrote: “Even on the hardest days/hardest weeks – the moment you kick me I smile, I feel blessed. Grateful beyond words.
‘You are already so strong – it’s like you can feel when I feel lost or weak. Your karate kicks me and reminds me how strong I am. You remind me of everything that matters and encourage me to give thanks at the end of each day.
‘A few moments of gratitude do not seem sufficient for such a blessing. You remind me how important it is to take care of my body, to eat well. To breathe clean air.
‘To take care of my mind – to release my worries for you, because I want YOU to feel calm. In the weirdest way, you really care for me. Thank you little girl… for reminding me of all these things.
