An open letter to my dear mom,
I don't even know where exactly to begin, but I wanted to thank you mom, for everything you've done for me and our family. First of all, you have always put your kids first before anything. Making your family has been your priority. You have dedicated yourself to your family and I appreciate you so much for that and more.
All my life, you have encouraged me to go for my goals. You have given me strength in times of need.
The earliest memories I have with you are remembering the times you came to visit me at school. I felt joy when you came to see me play a pilgrim for thanksgiving in Kindergarten. I also remember even faking stomach aches, just to go home and see you. I guess I didn't want to be away from you for too long.
Querida madre, you have seen me through my highs and lows, but you have never denied your love for me. When I needed protection and advice you are always there for me. You're a mother that accepts me and others the way they are and that is powerful. You love teaches me to continue to learn how to be a better person every day.
Mom, you have been a positive role model in my life. You were the first person to show me your passion for art, music and that has influenced my love for the arts today. You bought me my first diaries, and let me daydream and be a child. Your encouragement inspires me to love reading and develop my imagination.
Most importantly you are a healer, a listener, and the most compassionate person I know. I am proud to be your daughter. Now that I am a woman and have my own family I understand even more how much you sacrificed to make our lives better. Thank you for helping me with my own family and answering all my questions when I call you let me know that the time doesn't' matter.
It is ingrained in me is that being a mother is a blessing. You are a blessing in my life and my child's life. Mom, because of you and your encouragement you inspired me to be an independent woman and pursue my goals.
When I needed it, you were there to give me encouragement whether it was in school and other endeavors. It has meant a lot when you are able to listen to me and you give me a new perspective. You are the reason that I am who I am today. I have accomplished so much with your love and support. Thank you, mom.
To my mother with so much love and respect from your daughter.
