I write to you today, a letter, to tell you how much you mean to me and to say: I Love You!
I often sit in thankfulness and blessing realizing how special you really are. You are kind and compassionate, caring and patient, prayerful and spiritual. You are thoughtful, mindful, playful, and even listen to me and my stories without commenting – until I am finished. Then you encourage me, support my crazy ideas and always wish the best for m.
You pray for me, you have loved me even when I couldn’t and didn’t love myself. For that I am grateful!
You have taught compassion and caring with your actions, not just your words. More importantly, you have taught these attributes to many people, not just your family.
They say Latinos share a different type of love than many other cultures – I do not know if this is true, but the carinoso, cultura and familia that you have shared with us is a blessing. And again, as a teacher, you taught many about our culture.
You have taught me how to live my life in a loving manner, how to be patient, and even saintly – whether I have done so has always been my choice. But this letter is about you, not me.
As a mother, you have had to carry, feed, nurture, educate and protect us. You have done this in a loving manner and without complaint.
You made us feel loved and special, each of us in our own special way. You support us and our endeavors without question, but instead with love.
Mom, words cannot express what you mean to me and I cannot give you anything that equals the love you have given me.
So I say the following: You are beautiful, cool, hip loving, a great mom, a good sister and a loving daughter. Our family holds you in high regard making you an excellent role model.
Your actions are worth emulating, your love is worth sharing and your accomplishments are worth noting. I wish I spent more time with you, learning more about you sharing how much you mean to me.
So, I offer you my sobriety, my love and this letter for the world to see.
I love you Mom – Thanks for being you – I could not have been blessed with a better Mother.
Your Loving Son
For all of the mothers out there – you deserve more than one day and love in more than one way – So I say this to you all: May you find the peace and Blessings of God’s Love this and every day that you live.
For those that no longer have their mother – I sincerely hope and pray that you are peace, get to see Her again and have at least one more chance a the loving hugs only a mother can give.
And just so you know – OUR MOTHER MARY WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU!
Take Care, God Bless and Cool Runnings Mon – Michael
