Dear mom,

I wish I could buy you everything you wanted. I wish I could give you a gift that would express how much you mean to me but there isn’t a present, gift, or enough money that I could give to repay you for all you have done for me.

You are my rock mom! You continue to love me and it’s a love that is so unconditional. You love me even when I don’t clean my room, even when I don’t clean out the oven, when I leave wrappers on the kitchen counter, you love me when I don’t budget my money, or when I don’t listen, you love me when I take things out of your room and don’t bring them back. You have loved me everyday of my life from the most disappointing moments to the proudest moments!

I always say that my friends would rather hangout with you than me because you are so loving and caring towards everyone you meet. You were always my friends 2nd mom and all of them can say how true that is! You open your home to my friends, family, and even strangers. I’m not the only one thankful for you, so are my friends!!

You found the PERFECT balance of being our mom and friend. You are my friend when I need someone to vent to, cry to, or even just talk to. You know when to be a parent though. You aren’t afraid to ground us and discipline us, every mom should look up to you because I know that I do!!

You are the best shoulder to cry on. When I cry, you cry. When I laugh, you laugh. When I scream, you scream. You always tell me the truth even when I don’t want to hear it. You are the most faithful person I have ever met. 

You are the most Godly woman. You always remind me to be the best person I can be. You always remind me to remember who I represent and guide me through diffcult situations. Christ is so transparent in you, everyone can see this.

You are the most giving person alive. You help anyone in need, whether they deserve it or not. You don’t think twice about it!

You are the most beautiful woman in the world, momma. Not only on the outside but the inside is even more beautiful. You’re heart is filled with love and compassion. It’s so obvious why my dad fell in love with you! How could he not?Of course Christ is the glue and the center of our family but you are the person who keeps us sane. You remind us, push us, and encourage us everyday to be the best we can be. You are our rock!! Me, dad, Jase, and Jerek know this! 

I hope one day to be just like you. I hope to be even half of the mom and wife you are!! You remind me of my worth and beauty daily. You never fail to tell me you love me even when we argue! Wow, you are just my Idol mom! 

The older I get the more I realize how much you are needed in my life, I can’t imagine the day I have to leave for college. No matter how old I get,  I  will always need you. I’ll be 40 with kids and married calling you for advice. You are the most influential person in my life. 

To all the people who know my mom, I know you can agree with me and I know she’s probably made a difference in your life. I know we can all say that me, dad, Jase, and Jerek are so very blessed with the most caring and loving mother on this planet!

You are the best mom in the world and you deserve all the credit!! You are the bestest friend I have ever had. Thank you for being you. 

I love you more mom!!
