Dear Mom...Thank You


Dear Mom...Thank you. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do.

Thank you for having had to grow up entirely too soon. For helping to raise your baby brother and for being the mother to your mom because she didn't know how to. For being "the mother" in that household when you were just a precious little girl. So sweet and innocent but so wise beyond your years. Thank you for your strength, your courage, your honesty. Thank you for being my friend when I have needed someone to lean on. Thank you for all the sacrifices you've made. Thank you for your honesty even when it meant sometimes telling me things I didn't want to hear. Thank you for the hugs, the love and tenderness.  Thank you for all of it and for all that is still to come. You are my precious mother and I love you.

  3. A heartfelt tribute to your mother. "So sweet and innocent but so wise beyond your years." Your mother sounds like an amazing women, with a character forged by hardship but still able to love you and be your friend. Nothing so precious as a good mother, and you are both mutually blessed to have each other.
