This is my love letter to you…
My beautiful children.
I’ve waited all my life to find your love. I’ve searched in all the wrong places. I’ve sought the approval, love and attention of all the wrong people.
Ones that in the end betray me. Leave me. Seek to destroy me.
From the moment I knew your life was inside me I knew your love would be the kind I’ve searched for.
I knew it would be deeper than any I could find.
I knew not only would I love you with my every breath and fiber, I knew you would love me back.
You would love me on good days. On days when I was the fun happy “perfect” mom.
But even more importantly you would love me the days when I am not.
The days when life’s burdens are so heavy and hard to bear.
The days when I feel overwhelmed, or sad or frustrated.
Yes Dear Ones, The Loves of My Life… you would even love me then.
You’d love me after a scolding, or while being praised for a job well done.
You’d love me just because, just because I am me.
Because I am your mama.
Because I love you more than the air I breathe.
Because I would fight to the death for you.
Because you are my joy, my sunshine, my purpose, my meaning, my heart and my life.
I know our bond and our love is stronger than any other I could ever hope to find.
I know I will always smother you with love, without condition. I want you to grow up basking in that knowledge so you don’t seek it in all the wrong places.
I know I can rest assured that you will always love me back.
Thank you for being God’s gift to me.
Thank you for lighting up my life, with laughter, joy and happiness.
I pray every day I don’t disappoint you.
I pray every day I make you proud.
I love you,
