Dear Mom,

It’s hard to put into words just how much you mean to me… To encapsulate a love that extends beyond time and comprehension. To describe a bond that only a mother and daughter can share.

So I will say it like this – You are the textbook definition of a perfect mother. Growing up, I always felt like you loved all of your children equally. I knew that even if you were angry, your love was unconditional. I knew that I would have the best home cooked meal on the block! I knew that you would save my macaroni noodle necklaces and terrible art projects. I knew that you would force me to wear a scratchy Easter dress to church. I knew that you would let me run around and be free. I knew that being myself, in whatever form I was that year, was always going to be perfect in your eyes. I never had to doubt your love.

I’m sorry for all the times you asked me to wash the dishes and I didn’t. I’m sorry for all those times I gave you attitude when you asked me to take something upstairs. I’m sorry for that time I accidentally threw away all the lamb chops we were going to have for dinner that night. I’m even a little bit sorry now for all those times I beat up Katie with her Barbie dolls.

I’m thankful I had you then and I’m thankful I have you now. Brian, Justin, Katie and I love you so much it hurts. I love that I can call you every day just to talk about nothing. I love that anytime I have a question I can call you and ask. I love that anytime I come home your first thoughts are what my favorite foods are that you can cook for me. I love that even as an adult, I still want to be home with you when I’m sick or I’m sad.

You’re my real life superhero and angel on earth – you’ve been so strong and resilient and have shown me that I can truly make it through anything. I’m so blessed to have you as my mom and could never ask for a better one – and I hope that if I’m ever lucky enough to be a mother myself, that I’m at least half the mother you are.

I love you so much – Happy Mothers day.
