I want to start by telling you how thankful I am for you. I will never be able to say it enough times; THANK YOU. Thank you for everything. I would not be who I am today without you. You fought for me, you cried for me, and you relentlessly loved me. I know I’m not around much anymore but I know that even when I am out on my own, you will always do whatever needs to be done to make sure that I am provided for.
You always made me feel special and encouraged me all along the way. I know these are things that parents are supposed to do for their children, but I don’t think anyone else could have done it any better.
Perhaps it is easier for me to take my frustrations out on you than anyone else in this world because you love me limitlessly and unconditionally. There were times when I was a total brat to you; I was rude, selfish and unkind. Still, you loved me anyway, and for that, I am forever grateful.
I’ve seen you happy. I’ve seen you cry. I’ve seen you hurt. I’ve seen you tired. Mom, I’ve seen all your sacrifices for us and I would like you to know that you are deeply appreciated. The strongest yet the most loving soul that I’ve ever known. When I become a mother, I want to be like you— tough but always giving.. I may not say it too often, but I love you with all my heart and I pray to God to give you good health. May God prolong your life, mom.
Love you more than anything!
