A Mother's Day Letter From Mom!
With Mother's Day just around the corner, I thought I would post a letter to my children, Nikki and A.J., and to children everywhere, as to be a mother is to feel bound to all children. Happy Mother's Day to all moms and their beloved children!
Dear Nikki and A.J.:
Each year on Mother's Day, I realize that my gift is the privilege of being your mom. From the moment that I first held you in my arms, I have never been happier than when I am spending time with you. As your mom, it was my job to love you, protect you and encourage you and I wanted to get an "A" in it! I know well that I have been imperfect, but I hope you realize that every decision that I made was rooted in my love for you. Through you I have fine-tuned who I am, what I stand for and experienced the purest form of love. You have been my teacher.
So on Mother's Day more than any other, I want to celebrate you. For without you, I wouldn't be a mother. On a day when you go out of your way to make me feel loved, know that you love me with every smile, with every hug with every phone call; you love me when you're compassionate towards others, courageous and responsible.
And now that you are out there finding your way in life, I want you to know that I am proud of you for who you are. Strive to pay attention to what is meaningful in life and always take the high road. In your lowest moments, picture me standing there right beside you holding your hand and be strong. You are never alone, for you are in my heart and I am in yours.
Love, Mama Happy Mother's Day from Georgia's!
