An Open Letter To My Emotional Mother

Even though words are not enough to express the love I have for you.

An Open Letter To My Emotional Mother

Dear Mommy,

As I enter my senior year of high school, as I apply to colleges, as I graduate, I know you get emotional. I'm your baby, I'm your first born. How could I be growing up so fast? I know it's sad that I'm beginning to find my way in the world without you. But I want you to know, that as I start doing things on my own, I will always need you. I will always need your hugs, advice, support, and unconditional love. I want you to know that no matter how far away I go, no matter what I do in life, you will always be the most important woman to me.

You were always the first person I came to when I was little. You still are, and you always will be. I know that I can always come to you with anything that I need, and I want to thank you for that. Thank you for letting me cry on your shoulder whenever I need to. Thank you for working ungodly hours to give me the amazing life that I have. Thank you for listening to me. Thank you for supporting me, from cheering for me at my dance recitals when I was little, to helping me find a perfect college.

As I get older, I find more of your qualities in me, and I am so lucky because I admire you so much. I admire the strong, kind, selfless, and beautiful woman that you are. I hope that one day I can be the mom that you are.

Don't be sad that I'm growing up. Be happy that you made someone that you and I can be proud of.

(And remember, you still have two other kids. Good luck!)

Love always,

Your little girl

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
