Knowing she’s here comforts me.
When I’m upset, her wise words are always a salve to my heart.
When I’m with her I know I’m protected.
I know she’s always here for me.
Whenever I feel lonely, I can just remember how much she loves me and the loneliness disperses.
Seeing her smile makes me smile.
I treasure all the times we are together.
I marvel at her patience.
I’m in awe at how hard she works for us.
Her kindness nearly overwhelms me.
I aspire to be like her…
….and then fear I can never live up to being as an extraordinary mother as she once I have my own family.
Out of all the people I know on this earth, she is, without a doubt, the most amazing one I know.
This is for you, Mom, for I have a difficult time communicating my feelings verbally and fear I do not express how much I truly appreciate you.
Thank you for being you. Without you, I’d be nowhere.
I love you.
