An Open Letter to my Mom

Dear Mom,

Words cannot explain my endless abundance of love for you but I thought I would try. I want to start off by saying that I cherish you and our relationship more than anything else in this world. The bond we’ve had since the day you brought me into existence has been the most incredible experience in my life. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about you and the peace of mind I feel in your presence. Your voice, your hugs, your smile, your eyes, your support- everything about you, I am amazed by. You’re so many things to me, a superhero, my life coach, my number one fan, my safe place, my best friend, my teacher. Every time I see you I feel something unexplainable, a feeling of both joy and love that conquers every pain and uncertainty in my mind. Growing up, whatever problems or anxieties I experienced seemed to be immediately extinguished by your understanding words. I’m forever grateful for every moment I am graced with your presence. Being with you is my my favorite place, my home. You gave me the most perfect amount of space and independence as a child, letting me make mistakes and figure out the world on my own. But, you were always right behind me every time, to pick me up if I fell, literally and figuratively. I hope with all my heart to be even half the woman and mother you are. You helped me find grace and strength through my worst of times. You put up with my unpredictable, incomprehensible mood swings, and countered them with nothing but love and kindness. You’ve always held me together, especially at my breaking points. Your gentle ways, views on life, and literally everything single trait you possess inspires me like no other. I’m so incredibly proud to be your daughter, for you taught me to be the woman I am today. You are strongest yet the most loving soul that I’ve ever known. I don’t say it enough, but I appreciate every single little and big thing you do for me. That appreciation grows tremendously each and every day. With everything you have faced in your life, and the strength you have developed, proves to me that when life is tough I can be tougher, just like you. I will always need my mama and be your little girl, no matter how old I am. I love you with all of my heart. These words cover the basis, but just know my feelings, love, and appreciation towards you are indescribable.

Love always,

Your Dollface
