To that one person who i know will stick around with me when no ones there, someone who’s got my back, someone who could bring that smile on my face in less than a minute, the one who knows me inside out, someone who knows me since forever. I don’t think i could ever thank you for everything you’ve done for me.
You deserve so much more then you’ve got, nothing makes me happier than calling you my mother.
Someone i’ve grown up watching, someone who’s been a role model for me throughout. I know today is not mother’s day or your birthday, but do i really need a special day to tell you how i feel.
Growing up as teens we’ve always been extremely rebellious towards our parents, especially our mothers, but there’s something my mum told me, you could fight me as much as you want but whenever you feel alone remember i’ll always be there.
To all that you’ve gone through bringing us up to what we are today, to bearing all my tantrums, to all the times i forced you to let me be out a little longer or faked i was sleeping when you came to check at night, even though i cried about it all night i’ve learnt so much more from it.
You’ve always heard everything i’ve told you without judging any of it, you’ve stuck by through thick and thin, you held my hand to make me walk and now you watch me as I run.
To all our lunch dates, movie dates, solo trips and so much more.
Thank you for always believing in me. There’s nothing I want more than to make you proud. Thank you for understanding when I just couldn’t swing that one class, or when that test just didn’t go as well as I hoped.
Most importantly, thank you for showing me right from wrong, for encouraging me in my walk of faith, and for teaching me the value of respect not only for others, but for myself as well.
LIFE DOESN’T COME WITH A MANUAL IT COMES WITH A MOTHER.
YOU LOOKED INTO ME AND SAW SOMETHING WORTH BELIEVING WORTH BELIEVING IN, LONG BEFORE I BELIEVED IN MYSELF
MOM UPSIDE DOWN SPELLS WOW, WOMEN OF WONDER
If this made you even once think about your own mother, go tell her how much you love her and trust me that smile on her face will be priceless.
(and if you’re here only to spread negativity or say how meaningless this is, you’re in the wrong place honey, spread love and keep that smile on)
