There is too much to write about one’s mother, so here is the tip of the iceberg…
It is amazing to think you have been there for me from the moment I was born until now when you read my gift. Not only have you been there physically, your presence in my life has been more than just a mother. You are my best friend.
You know all of my thoughts without an explanation. You comforted me when my heart was broken. You have nursed me to good health when I have been sick (even when my sickness was self induced and against your wishes).
You have seen me through each year and every special moment in my life, acting not only as a mother and protector but also a friend to share my joy. You have shown me how to push myself to achieve everything I could ever need or want.
Your strength has made me into the person I am today and if it wasn’t for you, I don’t know where I would be. Your drive and direction has lead all of us. No one could ask for a better mother and I only hope I can one day be half the mother you have been.
I tried to pinpoint events or things that remind me of you, but I don’t need to be reminded. I think of you every day and smile.
All that lies beneath the water’s surface is too precious for words and can only be expressed in the love I have for you.
I love you Mum
This lovely letter was written by my beautiful daughter long before she was married and long before she became a mother. And I can say she has turned out to be a wonderful mother and a wonderful human being. Everything she writes here I can easily apply in return because she is to me what I am to her.
