To My Mama
Growing up, I didn't notice how selfless you were. How you'd give someone you didn't even know the shirt off your back if you'd knew it would be put to good use. How much you love you had boiling over inside of you. How much.... well, 'amazing' you possess. Like, I just didn't.
It wasn't until I got older that I began to compare your actions to those of my own... and in those moments I realize exactly who you are. I could never be so forgiving, walk with such grace, or have even half as much love running through me as you do.
Mom, you are a truly special person and I appreciate you so much! The thing that I admire the most about you is how passionate your are about your kids, grandkids, and family. Even when we don't deserve it, you continuously and selflessly extend yourself to be by our sides. We may not always want to hear what you have to say, but we appreciate your support and we know that you only have our best interest at heart.
It's always so hard to find the perfect gifts for you because in moments where we want to celebrate you, you'll find a way to celebrate us... so this open letter is about YOU and you only. I love you mama! Thanks for being you... undeniably, unashamed, and unapologetic. I am so blessed to have you by my side.
Happy Mother's Day... you're just... WOW!
