A Letter to My Mother on Her Birthday

Dear Mom,

Happy Birthday!! You don’t look a day over 40, and you get even more beautiful with each passing year. I am so thankful that God created you as my mom and the grandmother of my children. You are truly the most loving, thoughtful, selfless, compassionate, caring, giving, amazing woman that this world has ever seen. You make me want to be a better woman and a better mother. You constantly amaze me in the ways that you care for others before yourself.

Because I don’t tell you “thank you” enough, I wanted to list all the things for which I am so grateful:

For sticking with me through those hellacious teenage years that I was horrible to you… For forgiving me in all the ways I hurt you and for not holding them against me… For believing in me and encouraging me when no one else did… For believing the best in me, even when I was at my worst… For supporting my “crazy” dreams, and not just standing behind me in my decisions, but standing beside me, holding my hand every step of the way…  For bearing with me through all of the times I thought I knew better… For being my #1 prayer warrior… For taking us on family vacations… For helping pay my bills when all hope seemed lost… For all the little “sussies” you bring over just to cheer me up when I am having a bad day… For always putting others before yourself… For standing up for us when people hurt us… For treating my husband as your own son, and loving him just as much… For being the.most.amazing Mimi to my children that everyone could ever dream of… For passing on your awesome fair skin/red hair/green cat eye genes to me… For dropping whatever you are doing-no matter how important- if one of us needs you… For investing in my future and the future of my children… For always thinking of ways to make me happy… For telling me I am beautiful… For believing that I am beautiful…

For everything you do for me and mine, thank you. I love you so, so, so, so, so much, words cannot even begin to touch it. I respect you, admire you, look up to you, and adore you. I am SO grateful you are my mom, and I love you.

Happiest of birthdays, and may this year be your best one yet.

Love, Meg

    The letter was a touching and inspired one . I have no reservation, rather than to say the place of Mother has no substituted at all. No what mum has done, be it bad or good mother is mother. Mum wherever you are I am proud to say I really love you. Kiss u Mummy!
