Jelina Latrice posted a picture to her Facebook page on May 14th after receiving her diploma, and it's been shared more than 68,000 times since then. The note to her son reads:

Dear Karter,

For all those nights you had to fall asleep in the library, for all those times you had to watch cartoons alone because I needed to do homework, for the early mornings in daycare because I needed to be in class to being the last one there because I had to work, most importantly for the moments of separation because I needed to get this done, Thank you. You are the motivation for my heart to keep beating. I love you more than words can say. I finished because you needed to see me do it. I'm not strong because I want to be, I'm strong because I'm your first example. We've seen a lot and overcame a lot more.

To infinity and beyond, a mother's greatest love. 💕#iGraduated

And this is my "mom" note to Jelina: good work. Seriously. He won't remember that he had to watch cartoons alone while you did homework, but he WILL remember that you graduated. And thanks to social media, he'll remember this small gesture of thanks. :)
