Today I wanted to write a letter to my son. The first reason, so he can always reference this, especially during trying times. The second reason to remind us that as parents we can establish so much good in the world by just simply telling our children their worth, as we all know the world doesn’t always make you feel worth anything( which isn’t true we’re all gems 💎!). The final reason is to remind you all that you are loved, were once children, and now may have your own or will influence others later in your life. No matter what the outcome, you were once a child… AND that means We are all God’s miracles….
A letter to my son:
Dear Big Guy,
I learned in my life that although Betty White is older than sliced better, you are and will always be BETTER THAN sliced bread. ( I know you might not even know who Betty White is)
You were once a far away plan, as the younger me believed I would meet you some day. You were once a prayer, as the older me was taught not everyone is blessed with children of their own, and now you are the reality that miracles can happen. You have know idea how much I loved you, love you, and will always love you.
You were once the small baby I saw on a doctor’s screen. You then became the bundle of joy I held in my arms. You smiled at me earlier than babies are said to smile. It was my reward for all I’ve ever done well in my life; You..
You have no idea how strong you are. You have no idea how strong you’ve made me, and you could never know how many people’s lives you have already changed for the better. You’re wonderful, and will always be. I believe with my help, and the prayers I will always say, the strength I will always ask for you to have, and my pleas to God as a mother, from a mother’s perspective, you will be an even greater man than I could have ever imagined you to be. In so many ways you already are.
Your laugh is my favorite, you’re smile a close second, and there’s really not much I can say about you that doesn’t almost being me to tears, as I adore you. You are apart of me, and I you, but you are your own Y O U, and you have always been. As a mother, I have loved you before I knew you, and I love you more with every second I breathe. I will be here for you for all eternity. Even during those moments you do not see me, you’ll know forever I’m here.
I love you always my strong boy.
I wish for all of you whether you’ve had great Mum’s or not so great ones to remember that no matter where you are in life, you’ve achieved so much greatness already, and you still have sooo much more to achieve !!! Saying this to all of you, from me, a Mum.
I dedicate this post to my son, and all of the other brilliant children in the world, that continue to make their Mums amazed, humbled, and proud.
