This week marks a special time for us two. This week we will be celebrating our first Mothers Day. I’m not sure it’s actually sunk in that I am a mother, or maybe I am already used to being your mom, but it hasn’t hit me. The fact that I am your very own mother.
These last 6 months have by FAR been the happiest, hardest, easiest, most love filled months of my life. You are like a little light that when everything seems dark, you brighten it just a bit. And I know this isn’t just for me. Everyone who meets you, or even sees you in passing, can’t help but light up in a smile. My hope for you is that your little light is always shining. My job, as your Mother, is to help you with that.
Your Father and I can already tell you are going to be a happy person. You have been happy since the day you were born. You wake up, see me or your father and you are the happiest you know how to be. I will do my best to keep you a happy person. At the same time teaching, guiding, and yes, even sometimes discipline you. But it will all be out of our love for you. To keep you a happy person.
There will be lots of times of smiles and laughter, and time of tears. I want you to always know that you can always come to me at anytime. Any state. With anything. I will do my best to be a listening and loving ear. I will try to always have open arms for hugs or shoulders for tears. I will try to have smiles and jokes to lighten to not-so-happy days. I will try.
There will be times I will fail you. I will not always be perfect, or happy, or forgiving. But I promise you I will TRY. With everything in me, I want to be the best mother to you I possibly can be. Just remember that I love you.
This Mothers Day my gift to you (because I wouldn’t have this day without you) is to always try. It’s such a simple word but has so much meaning to it, and that is what I will give to you. I hope it’s enough. Everything we do is out of love for you.
So so so much love.
