It was once said that life is short; therefore I will not take my chances because there is not the time to leave important words unsaid. With a view of this, I am writing to you so that you know you hold a place of great importance in my heart.
As I get older, I release how time flies, and we dont get to spend so much time together like we did when I lived at home. Every day your inspiration continues to grow, as well as my admiration for you. These days I get to spend so much time with my friends and my husband. As time flies, I seem to be gradually forgetting about how you raised me to be a strong, independent woman. You taught me priceless values such as respect for you as a parent and authorities. As I raise my daughter, I do not want her to be less than the woman you taught me to be. You taught me how to be a mother while loving me as a child. Your parenting style was great, as it was authoritative but whenever I was wrong, you reasoned with me, you used minimal physical punishment but always found different ways to teach me about the bad things I did. Looking back, if I had to do it all again, I would still prefer your parenting, because it has largely shaped who I am today. Importantly, you taught me how to be independent and to also be obedient.
You have lived through the hard times with me, you have been my rock, through major life decisions, breakups and in every new leaf I have turned in my life. As a mom, you were able to carry on even in times when if you broke, everyone would understand. You made major decisions concerning me. To me you played your role as a mother correctly. Your resilience continues to prove to me that as a woman, we are just equal to men and shows me the heights I could reach even with barriers. When I was younger, you gave up your job and opened a foster care so that you could raise me; I was your priority. Some people despised you for working at a foster care job, and I remember crying with you when you felt your career will never pick, and you were just like a nanny. But today you have made a milestone, and you are a manager, who would have ever though a woman can have it all? How you stayed motivated throughout my upbringing always keeps me going whenever I feel the need to give up. Your sacrifices mean so much to me and I do not take them for granted. You have made so many sacrifices, and that makes me incredibly blessed to have someone who chooses my interests over theirs. If I would pay you back for the things you have done, I would, but since it cannot be priced am writing to let you know I love you so much.
Since I was a child, you have always been a hero to me. You have always been my biggest cheerleader throughout my life, and I could not ask for more. With so much love I note that I tend to lose sight of your importance to me. My insensitivity has hurt you many times, but I plan to make it up to you; I hope you will find it in your heart to forgive me. Sometimes I have chosen friends over you, and I am very sorry. I would just want you to know that even when the worst comes you are my family and you will always come first. I love you, mama.
