You are great at all you do. From raising me to cooking dinner, you have done it all really well. Now I could write every great thing about you in this letter but you would end up with a novel instead. It all started 19 years ago when I came into this world and in those 19 years, you've helped give me the greatest world I could ever ask for as a son.
As a kid I know I messed up a few times...did I draw on the fridge? Of course, I did. Did I accidentally flood the backyard with my brother? You bet. Did you still love me after that? Heck yes, you did. While those times are frustrating to deal with and I can be a lot to handle in certain times, you somehow still put up with me. Even the times I ask you question after question.
I can't think of a better person to spend time with than you. You are always willing to talk to me even if it's late at night. Speaking of which, you've helped me through times I couldn't handle by myself. The way you show care in your everyday life is wonderful. Whether you ask me how my day is going or if I ever need help on something, you're the one I can call upon. I know we've both had our rough patches in life but you know what? We're in this together, maybe not through everything, but for the most part mom, I got your back.
The phrase "I love you" is an understatement. I know I say it every day and night but I do mean it. The love you have for me is more than I could ask for from a mother. While on the subject of love, you've told me I will find it one day. It may not be today, tomorrow or the next, but when I do find it, it won't be stronger than the love I have for you. You have also told me "If your wife asks for a recipe from me, I'll give it to her but I will leave out one ingredient so it won't be as good as my cooking". I can't argue with that. After all, mom is always right.
I better mention this before you ask me, no I still don't have a girlfriend. (I am trying my best)
While we have thousands of memories together: Going on walks, working in the yard, making trips to the grocery store or even just staying inside. I cherish them all. You've shown me great things in life and I would happily relive them again. Thank you for all you've done and sacrificed for me to have the life I do now. I can never payback for everything you've done for me, but I will always remember it all.
Your (favorite) Son.
