It was a few years back and I was upset about something someone had said to me. I was feeling that familiar feeling. I needed my Mommy. So I called… the tears were escaping their way out and I cried to her as if I were a child again. I remember her voice being so calm and soothing. She told me she was proud of me as she always does and told me to live my life the way I want. I am forever grateful for her wisdom.
Two weeks later I received a letter in the mail. It was thick with papers and other documents. It was a package from my Momma. I opened the envelope to see what was inside and as I did the tears instantly poured from my eyes. Out fell pictures of me and my little brother as kids, papers I had written in elementary school and old report cards with my straight A’s. And with these memories was a simple hand written note that read:
Just a few things to remind you who you are. Don’t let anyone say or do anything to change that. I love you just the way you are with all my heart. Be happy for you, not anyone else. LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU.
Your Mommy xox
And with a smiling sunshine to end the sweet note my heart was filled with more love than I could ever imagine.
To the only person in my life who makes sure I know how proud she is… for the woman who made me who I am today… here’s to my Mommy 😀 I love you more than anything in this world!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! 🙂
Ok yes I have shared this note before, but it still brings so many tears of joy I think it’s worth sharing again 😉 I guess I just really LOVE my Mommy!
May springs arrival be just around the corner… if the groundhog doesn’t see its shadow!!
