I know it isnít, much but Iíve decided to write you a little letter to tell you everything you mean to me.
I was looking for cards for you the other day, something that you would like, and that could get my point across but wasnít to mushy. Itís a hard compromise to make. So I said to myself ďSelf, why not make her a card?Ē But then I was thinking about it today, and Iím not the most poetic.
So here I am writing you a letter, something I probably havenít done since I stopped believing in Santa *wink*.
To express in words everything that you are to me would be like trying to fill the grand canyon one grain of sand at a time, but Iím going to try.
Everything I love about myself comes from you. My eyes, my ability to smile and laugh at myself. My perseverance, and ability to tell myself ďItíll all turn out in the endĒ. You taught me everything about life, from the most basic things like tying my laces and saying my ABCís to much more complex things. Loving myself, simply because you love me, and complete understanding of others. You told me once that Iím to independent for a man. You are the one who taught me that independence, Iím happy being myself, you trust my opinion and always keep an open mind to what I have to say, not many adults have that respect for kids. You always listen to me and allow me to make my own mistakes. Iím sure youíve watched me walk into situations that you knew were going to hurt, but the thing that lets me know how much you care is that you let me go into them. Had I been totally sheltered from life Iíd never learn, and when life pushed me around you always gave me your shoulder and ear, and the strength to push back. Iíve always pulled through.
Remember grade 3 and Miss Dunnett? How Iíd cry because of her? You always listened to me then, even though, looking back I realize my qualms were so frivolous.
Your so self-less, it amazes me. I asked you SO MANY times what you wanted for mothers day but you couldnít think of your wants! ďGet me an ink jetĒ ďwhat do you want to get me?Ē
Itís so hard to find something this year because I realized, that I donít give you as much credit as you deserve, flowers donít do you justice.
I want to pamper you, I want to hire an astronaut to write how much I love you on the moon.
I canít express in words what you give to me without even knowing it. Your doing an amazing job being my mother, and I donít think I tell you enough.
I feel as though I take you for granted sometimes, and maybe you even take yourself for granted.
So today is your one day a year to be spoiled, one measly little day to focus on you rather then everyone else, when youíve given every day of your life for the past 16 years to me.
I canít imagine my life with anyone else. I donít even want to imagine it.
Weíre growing old together and I wouldnít have it any other way.
So happy mothers day, I hope you enjoy it, and now you know that I can write more then 50 words about what you mean to me. I donít need an essay contest to tell you though. (549 words)
Mom I love you with every fibre of my being.
You need more then 24 hours.
Happy Mothers Day !
Iíll always have you to thank for everything I am.
Love you every day of the year
