Mom, Because Of You, I Am Everything I Am Alicia ThorneJanuary 2020 What bond can you compare to the connection that mothers share with their daughters? No use thinking it over: the answer is none. As they grow up, many daughters rebel and fall out with their mothers. It’s a weird and often volatile relationship dynamic that can have you thinking this relationship never truly works. But wait until the daughter becomes a mother and you will realize just how deep and special the bond these two women is. The Day A Daughter Becomes Mom, She Truly Appreciates Her Mother’s Worth. On that day, you realize how much you owe to your mother, and how much you learned from her. That is why I can say this today from the bottom of my heart: I am everything I am because of you, mom. Every bit of me has you written all over it. Mom, you were always there for me. You never got tired. You taught me from since I was born and you remain my teacher even today. You took on that role on top of a dozen others. You helped me grow and become a better person. You wanted the best for me and directed me along the best paths in life. Your Soul Is Full Of Kindness And Beauty. You know me better than anyone, with all my flaws. And yet you are the kindest person I know. You held none of my shortcomings against me. Even when I felt you had gone too far, you were never cruel on me. Today, I can honestly say my greatest joy is seeing you smile. Seeing you sad breaks my heart. Mom, you gave me all I ever needed, at your own expense. You made sure I had enough to eat. You cared for me and helped me have a good soul. In my heart of hearts, I am sure I will love you for as long as I live. I Don’t Care How Old I Am, I Still Long For Your Hugs. Through your love and care, you built me into the woman I am today. I’ll admit, there are many times I have failed. But you were never tired of showing me how much you believed in me. Even today, you see the best in me even when all I can see are shameful limitations and flaws. You have never shied from being my critic when necessary, and I can always count on your support. I Am So Grateful, And I Love You For Everything You Have Done For Me. I have never been as proud of anyone as I am of you. We have argued and fallen out many times. But despite it all, you have been there for me and were always looking out for me. You wanted the best for me at all times, even when I did not appreciate your “intrusion” into my life and your opinion regarding my life choices. All I can say is this: I love you mom, I always will.
