Thanks Mom, I Love You

Mom, I know you read me everyday, and I just wanted to tell you thank you.

Thank you for letting me be me.

Thank You:

for giving words of encouragement.

for giving guidance as a friend and a mother.

for never expecting me to be perfect.

for always being there when I need a helping hand.

for having a great sense of humor.

for being a strong person, but more importantly, a strong woman.

for kissing away the hurt in my boo-boos when I was a kid.

for holding my hand - even long distance thru my hurt as an "adult".

for letting me climb into bed with you all those years I had those terrible nightmares.

for holding me and giving me kisses while I was sick.

for being the loudest to stand and cheer for me.

for kicking me in the ass when I need it.

for letting me make my own decisions.

for supporting me even when I made the wrong decisions.

for helping me when Connor was sick.

for loving and accepting Charles into the fold of our family without blinking an eye.

for never saying anything about my parenting skills or lack there of sometimes.

for helping me when figure out something to calm Lauren when she was sleep walking so much.

for helping me to be a better mother thru you.

for helping me be a better wife thru you.

for helping me be a better person thru you.

Thank You for being my Best Friend.

Thank You for being You.

I love you.

Are we sisters? Sounds like you're writing that to MY mother!

Isn't it cool when your Mom is your best friend?

Damn you! Why would you purposefully make me cry at 4:45 in the morning?!

I love your mother, too. She sounds like a cool woman. Ask her if she'd like to adopt another daughter?!

I have spent the last 36 hours or so trying to think of the right words to say "thank you for this thank you". Uncharacteristically, I'm speechless. Being a Mother yourself, you can imagine how much this means to me. I always prayed during those long difficult teenage years that we would be friends some day and my prayers have been answered. You are a better Mother than I was and my Grandchildren are blessed to have 2 wonderful parents. I was blessed (as you are) with 2 wonderful, healthy, beautiful, intelligent children. What more can you ask for in one lifetime? I treasure your friendship and love you like a Mother. You are Da BOMB!
