I swear that time just keeps on flying by me. Today, September 15th, is my mother’s birthday. So, to celebrate it, I thought I’d write a letter to my mom on her birthday.
Letter to My Mom on Her Birthday
I know that we often have a difficult time communicating with one another. In many ways, we are the exact opposite. We have very different perspectives on how things should be done. We even disagree on which way the toilet paper should be facing on the roll (I’m totally with dad on this one). We’ve managed to embarrass the other one countless times over the past 23 years. However, that doesn’t change the fact that you are my mother and I love you.
Even though you really do annoy me sometimes, I couldn’t imagine having a different mother. You have always been and will continue to be my biggest cheerleader. You taught me from an early age that I was expected to be a strong, independent female. You admitted your mistakes, in hopes that I could learn from them and not repeat them (I like to think that I have managed to do just that). You’ve always managed to make me feel loved (even in the middle of a fight, I never doubted it).
I don’t think that you will ever read this. However, I hope you know that I truly appreciate everything you have done for me. The past few years years have terribly difficult for us and I still worry about you without dad now. I just hope that you are able to find some fulfilling hobbies in the near future and to live a happy, healthy life.
So, happy birthday mom! I hope today is filled with nothing but good things… good food, good laughs, and even a good movie. You deserve it.
