Superwoman

Dear Mom,

Moms in general are all special but, you are extraordinary. We have been through quite the rough patches and, each time you have proven to be stronger than I thought. I can’t even imagine how hard it is raising 2 kids and 2 dogs on your own. You are incredible, intelligent, and strong-willed.

I apologize for every time when I was a teenager acting like a bratty teenager. People always tell you when you’re young that you will grow closer to your mom and you never believe it. This time I will swallow my pride and admit they were right. Mom, you are one of my best friends. I love that we share everything and I can always confide in you now. Your unconditional love is something I often take for granted. Despite any mistakes I have made or trouble I have caused you, you love me nonetheless.

I will admit my family is a mess and I empathize with every single person whose family drives them crazy. But, my mother makes up for it, despite being a little crazy too. Some people have huge extended families as their support system; motivating them through life and being great role models. Other people have non-blood relatives who they count as their family. I have my mother and, we may not be big in numbers but we are all we need. Some people have perfect families, others do not, I do not know where I fall in those categories. I do know that I am lucky to have a mother who would do anything for me and, I am grateful every day.

Mom, thank you for doing it all and being it all. I aspire to be just as strong and capable as you. You truly are superwoman, xo.

  1. I love this blog post. I saw Superwoman and immediately clicked to view it and see what it was all about. Once I saw it was writing about mom, I already fell in love with it. My mother is everything in my life and I love how you expressed the way you feel towards her because she would love this!
