This is to my mother and to all the wonderful mums around the world:
Thank you for bringing me into the world to see and experience its beauty;
For staying by my side and watching over me till I fell asleep;
For assuring me the pain would pass anytime I was hurting;
For always reminding me how special I am;
For helping me grow into the mature person that I am today;
Thank you for never hesitating to spank me whenever I got naughty;
For correcting me whenever I was in the wrong;
For raising me in the fear of the Lord;
For teaching me the difference between right and wrong;
For always making sure that I never went astray;
You always told me I was the best gift God gave you;
And I want you to know you are the best mother I could ever have;
For never withholding anything good from me;
And teaching me to appreciate the little things;
I wouldn’t be here today if you did not raise me.
God bless you dear mother;
May your days to come be brighter and more joyful than your past days;
May good health, peace, joy and favor be your portion;
May people see you and call you blessed;
And as you’ve been a blessing to me, may you continue to be one to others.
I love you, mother.
From your beloved child.
