I believe in guardian angels because I get to talk to mine every day. Mom, you are the most beautiful human being alive. I don’t just owe you my life, but much more for how I have chosen to live it.
Thank you for your faith in me.
I know you do not understand my dreams but you have never needed to comprehend everything that I do. For you, it only matters that I am happy and motivated. How fortunate am I to have you?
It does not go unnoticed that you overcome your fears, choosing faith in me and belief in my future. Thank you.
I know that every award/blessing I have ever received is because of you. You made me who I am. And no one else was there to see you pluck out my kinks.
If everyone had a mother like you, the most beautiful of humanity would have no choice but to reveal itself. You are that inspirational.
I hope you know how much you mean to me. You amaze me. I have seen you cope with all the burdens of life, every time with more confidence than hope because you live through us. Seeing your children prosper has long since replaced feelings your trials and tribulations. I wish you didn’t have to sacrifice so much, but we are indebted that you were more than happy to. We love you. You are reflected in all the best aspects of my being.
I don’t know when you did it but one day I became a man and it was obvious in the way you began to let go, trusting me from a distance.
I am a better man from Kristina because of you. I know exactly what I need in a relationship because you were unselfish with your lessons of undying love.
You didn’t have to challenge me to speak my mind, instead, you accepted when I did. I thank you for all those times when I hurt but you still waited for the right time to allow me to fix things.
I remember she caught me smoking one day, I remember how much you cried and I remember the promises I would eventually break but I swear I still trying my best. If only to honour how much you care. I am growing every day. I can’t wait to make you a grandma, if only one more child may know your affection.
I am well prepared to bring a life into this world because you showed me how to protect and live for those that we love. I was your responsibility and I am going to return the favour. Because very high standards are meant to be met.
Mom came to this world as an angel. You could have been anything you wanted to be in this world, but you chose to be my mom. That mission is everything to you. And for that I loved you since before I was born. It is why I came to you. I love you now and forever, that much will never change. Thank you for giving me the chance to make proud.
