A Daughter’s Letter

“Spread love everywhere you go, first of all in your own home.  Give love to your children, to a wife or husband, to a next-door neighbor.”  Mother Teresa

Dear Mom,

There’s no bond quite like that between mother and child.  You know me in ways no one else ever will.  You also see in me all the things I can still become and continue having faith that I can do and be whatever I want, no matter what my age.  You are my biggest fan, my mentor, my confidant, my hero, my turn-to person when my world comes crashing down, and the first person I call to tell when things are going great.  The comfort that comes from our friendship, the confidence that your faith in me instills, and your unquestioning support of whatever I do, is irreplaceable.  The kind of “there for me” that you are is the very essence of what makes a great mother.  I wear your unconditional love and support around with me every day.

I am so blessed to have you in my life.  Thank you for always, always being at my side and having my back.  No one is in my corner quite the way you are.  I treasure you, mother, and love you more than anything.  You are an amazing soul ever ready to learn something new, always open to differing opinions, and so compassionate and kind.  You have always taught by example.  There’ll never be a day in my life when I won’t need you.  I’m her for you too. Please remember that.

Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday, mom.  You make the world a better place.

 

Love Always,
