The older I get the more I understand. The older I get the more I hurt. As women who birth and become care givers to our children , and families. We so often sacrifice our goals, dreams and ambitions for the betterment of our family. Mommy I have a better understanding of what it had to have been like at the age of 20 to become a mother.
With so much of your life yet to live, so many goals push to the side. But mommy I’m forever grateful. Everyday you loved and took care of our daily needs. You single handily helped to mold us into the responsible adults we are today. I look up to you so much, probably just a tad bit more then my sisters and brothers because without you I wouldn’t have so much. Without you I wouldn’t have been able to have a career for the last 5 years. You have and still do help me in ways I can never repay you back for.
Mommy I appreciate you so much. I know it hasn’t been easy, I know it has been challenging and sometimes tiresome. I know that you can’t wait till the day when you can just relax on your back porch and enjoy your beautiful home. Mommy I love you so much and I may not say it often but I appreciate all that you do for me Aris, & Austin. I’ve had some pretty rough times and I can honestly say that I know you’ve had my back. You’ve been so supportive. I hope one day I can repay you for all you’ve done for me.
I see myself on that same journey as you, giving up so much of myself to raise my family. I feel what you must have felt and it’s hard and at times it can feel stagnant, and often at times make me regretful. The end result however is so rewarding!
Thank you mommy. I love you. I appreciate you. I hope you know that I understand what you gave up for us, and I know that it wasn’t easy. You are a true role model I look up to you everyday. I don’t think I’d ever grace the level that you’ve reached. But I’m watching you mommy the same way I watched you as a little girl.
After all we were both given the same nickname say “red”. 🤣🤣
