To my oldest daughter:
You were the first to give me the distinction of being a mother and for you I am grateful.
You turned nine this year yet I can still remember that small infant I held to day in April nine years ago. That little nearly six pound squalling baby, you was swallowed whole by your 0-3 month sleeper. You showed us that things are not always what we plan from the moment you were born. You taught me so much as I watched you grow but mostly you taught me how to love someone so deeply, so profoundly, so unconditionally that I would gladly give up my life for yours.
You have given me strength I never knew I had. You have made me a better person and I can never thank you enough for being you. You have taught me about determination and going for what I want even if no one thinks I can do it because you always reach for the stars with everything you do. You have shown me so much courage over your years. Singing all by yourself on that big show in the the talent show.
You have shown me how to work for something and give it my all. Winning a school wide writing competition. I love you. I will always love you. No matter what life throws our way, you will always be my daughter and I will always be your mother.
You are a wonderful daughter, sister, and person and one day you will make a wonderful mother yourself.
You are growing into a beautiful, smart, and talented young lady and I am so proud of you. I couldn’t be more thankful you are my daughter because to me you are perfect.
Thank you for being my daughter.
To My son:
Dear Son, You are my son, my only son. When you were born after 15 minutes of labor, you taught me to be thankful.
You have taught me about kindness as you have the most tender loving spirit I have ever seen. You taught me about being true to myself. You taught me about treating everyone the same because you never see the differences in people, you only see people. I love that about you. You have a wonderful spirit and I love that. You have taught me about patience, kindness, and generosity. And with each ball you bat and each run to the home plate you make, you teach me about hard work, practice, and determination.
I feel blessed to have such a wonderful son.
And no matter the future, no matter your choices, I will always love you. I will be there for you, I will give you everything I can. Thank you for being my son.
To my youngest:
My baby, later this year you turn two. I can’t believe that it’s almost been two years since you were born. You were our special gift. When we wasn’t expecting a blessing, we were given one more special than I could ever imagine, you. You have lit our world with happiness. You have taught me more about patience than any one else. You are always full of curiosity and want to know everything about everything. As I chase you around while you explore your surroundings, you show me that everything has magic. Even the normal mundane everyday activities can be new and exciting. Your smile and giggles are music to my ears. We are learning about life together. You are showing me how to appreciate everything from a new point of view.
I love you for your wonder. I love you for your curiosity. I love you for being you. You taught me to enjoy the moment, The messes can be cleaned but the lessons learned are forever. Thank you for being my daughter.
