Dear Mom,


A few years back for a research project I polled a few of my friends and asked them to tell me what their Mother meant to them. Last night while in retro mode, I found these words on an old website I put together for an undergrad project. I thought it fitting to share these sentiments once again while we herald the women who raised us. 

For full effect, download "Dear Mama" by Tupac, and play at maximum volume throughout the duration of this post. 

For all of the mothers out there who put band-aids on our scrapes. Who made chocolate milk for us every day so that when we came home from school we had our snack waiting for us. Who would let us stay out on summer nights “another 5 minutes” so that we could play night games with our friends. Who would get up at 5:40 in the morning all winter to drive us to basketball practice in junior high. Who hugged, cried, worked, cooked, fed, cleaned, smiled, loved, and gave everything that you had in your life. Here is a simple note to let you know how much we care.

Dear Mom,

Dear Mom,
I don’t have the words to tell you how important you are to me in just two sentences.  I could fill up novels that would put J.K. Rowling to shame.  Know and never forget that I love you.

Dear Mom,
We often imagine our lives turning out a certain way.  I’m not sure if you imagined being where you’re at.  But my dreams wouldn’t come true without you doing what you do.
