Happy Birthday, Mama!

Dear Mom, 

I love you so much, so so much. I’ll forever be grateful for all the things you’ve done for me, for all the things you’ve taught me. There’s so many things I’m thankful for because of you that I’m not sure I could even list them all!

I admire that despite your latest health issues, you continue to fight and push forward. I know that it isn’t the easiest being the one who needs assistance with things but you’re slowly getting back to where you were before. 

Thank you for the endless and unconditional love you’ve showered us with from the moment we were brought onto this Earth. Because of you, I’ve learned what it’s like to be loved, to have someone rooting for you in your corner, someone who truly cares about what you do and how you do it. 

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure if we’d make it to today.. but we did and I’m glad. I’m glad we were blessed to have you for another year! I still worry but overtime I’ve learned to live in the moment, right now, while you’re here with us.

Thank you for all the times you saved me in high school. From defending me and my character against an adult who despised me to finding me at senior baccalaureate to switch me shoes because mine were uncomfortable. 

Thank you for teaching me to drive and staying patient when it came to it. I remember you telling me “When it comes to driving on these turns, go the recommended speed that the signs say.. I don’t but that’s because I can drive good!” as you took the turns full speed. 

[As I write this, it’s 5:19 AM and I’m becoming emotional. I lay in bed and can’t help but be so grateful that we have you.]

I look at you and wish for better for you. I wish things would come easy and that you’d be healed in the blink of an eye. But there’s a reason it’s a long process, I don’t know the reason quite yet but I know that’s just the way it’s meant to be. 

I had a bunch more to say, but today has not been going my way and I’m feeling kind of flustered so I’ll include my Facebook post to you now. 

Happy birthday, Mama! 

I can’t even begin to explain how much you mean to me. Throughout my entire life you’ve taught me what it’s like to be truly loved by someone, no matter what. You’ve taught us compassion, empathy and so much more. You devoted your entire life to your family and that’s why I’m more than glad to be by your side in our current journey. 

There are good days and there are bad days, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I know I complain and cry, a bunch, but just know that no matter how upset or frustrated I may seem, I love you unconditionally. You’re the reason I won’t give up on anything. You’ve always taught me to strive for my goals and to keep my head up, so you need to do the same now!
You’re an amazing woman and I’m more than lucky to call you my mother. I love you infinity times infinity! I hope your day was good and I hope that Saturday is even better! 

I love you, mom. I’m so glad you’re in my life. I’m sorry this post is all over the place, but know that it comes from a place full of love!

    1. I’ve been meaning to reply to this, but I keep getting distracted! I’ve been pretty good honestly, I have my moments but otherwise things are alright! I’m currently preparing for a stress-filled week as my sister is starting the tryout process for her junior high cheer team. Thanks for asking! xx
