This Mother’s Day I have written you a letter to let you know how much you mean to me. I think you know how much I really, really like you, but isn’t it nice to see in print? You have been such a source of emotional support for me over the years, and even though we have had our difficulties like most moms and daughters, I can’t imagine having another person like my mom.
I love that we have been friends for all of my adult life.
I love that we have laughed so hard that we almost peed our pants.
On over one occasion.
I love you were there for me during my first pregnancy and helped me with all of my worries. To answer the tough questions you can only ask a mom, like what the hell is a mucous plug??
I hated you weren’t able to be around for my second pregnancy, but I remember that day I found out that I was having a girl and I would name her after your mom, Ella, and how we cried on the phone. It felt like Grandma was there with us, didn’t it? In fact, I know she was. 🙂
I loved watching you first become a grammy to Annie.
Which developed into Mamie as she grew older and her speech developed.
Thank you for helping me through one of the hardest times in my life, my divorce and raising Annie as a single mother. I would not have weathered that storm as well as I did without your love, support, and guidance.
We have different ways of doing things but you laid the groundwork for me to be the mom that I am today and for that I am thankful.
I love you, mom.
Happy Mothers Day to you and all of the mommies out there!
