A Love Letter . . . to My Mom
Thank you for putting candy hearts in my lunch. Thank you for slicing my apples and oranges.
Thank you for keeping our house clean enough “to do open heart surgery on the kitchen floor.”
Thank you for Guess jeans, prom dresses (even when we couldn’t afford them), and whole outfits from the Limited (including the faux long pearls).
You went without, so we could have what we wanted.
Thank you for delicious dinners, games, extravagant Christmases, and holiday vacations.
Thank you for the gift of a big brother.
Thank you for telling me, just a few days ago, that you loved me and that I belonged in our family.
Thank you for showing us how to live a life of service, how to love unconditionally, and that promises mean everything.
