A Letter To My Mom

It occurred to me the other day, that we often take for granted the people in our lives that mean the most to us.  As I go through my life loving you, appreciating you, and admiring you, I don’t generally take the time to tell you.   I always just assume that you know them.   Today, because it is Mother’s day, I think it might be nice if I made sure you know how I feel about you.

Since the first day of my life you have loved me, taken care of me and put my needs above your own.  You have disciplined me, taught me and encouraged me. You have sacrificed things I will never know about, and you did it all because you loved me.

You have given me so many things, that I often don’t even think about.   Your values, wisdom, unconditional love and support in every thing I do.   You have taught me honesty, and to live my life in such a way that  I can make myself proud.   You have always been the one that I turn to when my world is in crisis…for, even if I don’t take your advice, I do hear it.

I admire that you are such a strong and very successful lady in every thing you do.   Most everyone I have met, that knows of you either personally or casually respects and admires you mom.   You have built a very successful business, a beautiful home and well….best of all ME!

My children look up to you, feel safe with you and respect you for everything that you are.  They know that I am who I am, partly because of the example that you have set…and they know that you will always be there if ever they need you.  I am so glad to have such a strong role model for my children.   In this world there are so many challenges…that they need that.

I have many memories of fun times with you, that I will forever cherish…and do love to share them, and laugh about some of the ridiculous things that we have done.  I think that my most favorite memory is “please enter the code”, and any time it crosses my mind, I laugh out loud.  I am happy to say that this isn’t the only crazy day that I do think fondly of…and I hope there will be many more memories for us to make.

Mom, you are always a lady in every situation, and you handle yourself with dignity and class no matter how silly, difficult or ridiculous the circumstances are.   You have overcome hard times and flourished in good times.   I have been blessed with many things in my life, but the biggest most valuable thing, is that you are my mom.

Love your favorite Daughter
