Thank You, Mom

In honor of Mother’s Day, I want to take a moment to write a letter to one of the most inspirational people in my life; my mom. The bond my mom and I share is incredible. She has always been there when I need her and on this Mother’s Day, I’ll be sure to thank her for it.Dear Mom,Thank you. I may not say it often but, you are one of the most inspirational and extraordinary people in my life. When I was young, I always knew I had an awesome mom. Above all, you always put your children first. Being a stay-at-home mom certainly isn’t easy, but, you did it! Whether that was helping me with homework, baking for my class birthday party, running last minute errands or trips to the doctor, you were always there when I needed you.As I grow older, you are the shoulder to cry on, the helping hand and of course the advice queen. You tell me to shoot for my dreams, accept myself and one another, and to see and travel the world-well, not exactly. Regardless of your hesitation, you let me see the world. Allowing me to not only study in Milan, but travel throughout Europe and Africa, was incredible. Now as I embark on my future endeavors, working my first full-time job, receiving an undergraduate degree, I truly thank you for your endless support. Our relationship will only grow. Unfortunately, there are some who never realize how important their mom truly is until it’s too late. For me, I want you to know I appreciate all you do each and every day. I can only hope I will be as supportive and inspiring to my kids as you are to me. Our bond is one of a kind and it’s just beginning. Thank you mom, from the bottom of my heart.
