Thank You Mom For Everything You Do

Mom, You're The Most Selfless And Fierce Woman I Know — I'm Eternally Grateful For You

I could not be more thankful to have you as my mother, my support system, my therapist and my best friend.



I need to say thank you for everything you do for me. The faith you have in me has given me the confidence and strength to be able to stand up for myself and keep a good head on my shoulders. Because of you, I hold a determined attitude and a very persistent mindset that allows me to do anything I set my mind to. You have helped transform me into the person I am today; I am very happy with the young woman you have helped me develop into. I try my hardest to be kind and compassionate toward others as it is my goal to make a positive impact on the people who come into my life. I have been able to become this person that people enjoy having in their life — I am so glad you were able to raise me this way.

We have been through so much together. From the situation with my father to sicknesses and injuries to death and loss — and everything else in my life — you make me feel like I am the luckiest daughter. I always feel that I have a support system that won't ever let me down. You have been here through everything that has been detrimental in my life, but you also let me figure things out for myself, and I can't thank you enough for that.

Without your help, I could not have found myself.

Even though I get frustrated when you tell me to make decisions, I genuinely think it has been one of the best lessons you've taught me. I now know that it is essential for me to be able to make decisions for myself regardless of how it makes other people respond because it is how I need to decide to make myself feel content. I understand that it isn't realistic to please everyone and I must make things make sense for me and my mind in order to be completely happy.

Mom, you are so strong. You are such an amazing woman. I admire how much you care about everyone that you come in contact with. You are such a powerful woman and a meaningful presence in the lives of everyone you meet — I just want to be like you one day.

And, I aspire to make you proud. I want to show you that all of your hard work over the years has paid off. To show you that I am going to go far in my life and never take no as an answer. All of the hours you have spent working and studying — even pushing yourself to your limit — has allowed me to have so many opportunities and, overall, made me into a better person.

Thank you so much for all of your dedication, allowing me to be able to dance and do what I love the most. Thank you for teaching me how to be hardworking and passionate. Thank you for showing me love and compassion that I can carry on into my everyday life. I just want you to know that I am able to make an impact in the lives of the people I meet because of all of your hard work raising me.

Thank you for it all, Mom. You are the best thing that has been a part of my life and I am so so blessed to be yours. I hope I can make you proud of the things I do. I love you Mom, forever and always.

Thank you for being my forever best friend.

A Thank You Letter To My Mom

For everything you've done for me, whether you knew it or not.


Dear Mom,

As both Mother's Day and the end of my first year living away from home come to an end, I've realized the abundance of things that you've done for me that I have to be grateful for. While I can never truly put into words how thankful I am for everything that you've done for me, here's a few that come to mind.

Thank you for always listening to my problems.

And there's a LOT. You let me rant to you about everything and anything without judgement, and I know you're always genuinely concerned about whatever I'm going through. I never have to question whether you're still listening even after hours of talking, and I think I'd go insane without being able to talk to you!

Thank you for doing things you didn't want to do.

Whether it's going to the gym after a long day of work, going to get our nails done, or even going paddle boarding, you're always willing to try the things that I want to do. When I was a kid, you would always make sure that Maura and I had someone to practice our sports with or go on a bike ride with. Even now that we're older, I still I know I can always count on you to try a new restaurant with me or check out vacation spots to visit in the future.

Thank you for being so understanding.  

I definitely wasn't a perfect kid, and there have been some moments where I don't even know how to deal with myself. You never got mad at me over a bad test grade or sports performance, and that gave me the confidence to work my hardest without the fear of failure. That confidence not only got me through the years that I spent at home, but still carries through my work while I'm at school.

Thank you for teaching me how to be strong.

I have watched you face obstacles that I couldn't even imagine facing, and yet you did so with ease and always made sure to take care of Maura and I in the process. You never let the struggles you went through change your view on the world and still continued to remain positive throughout everything, and I try to maintain the same positivity in my life when times get tough.

Thank you for always advocating for me.

No matter what I am getting myself down over, you never fail to remind me of my strengths and how special they are. Whether it's an unfair teacher, a stupid boy, or an unkind friend, you remind me "not to let them rent space in my head" and remind me how precious my time really is. Even when it seems like the whole world is against me, I know I can always count on you to support me and give me the motivation to keep going.

Thank you for everything you have done for me, and all that I know you will continue to do. I love you so much!
