Dear Mom,

This is our 24th Mother’s Day together. I of course enjoyed our time together when I was younger, but now that I’m a little older, I really appreciate the strong mother / daughter bond we have developed. Everything you do is appreciated – big or small – it’s appreciated. There is so much I have to be thankful for because of you. I could write an endless list of why I am a better person because you are my Mom – this is for you.

Thank you for always encouraging me to follow my dreams and being there for me. 

Thank you for being an ear for me to vent to and a shoulder for me to lean on. 

Thank you for always putting my needs and wants before yours. 

Thank you for being a positive role model. 

Thank you for always putting a wonderful, home cooked meal on the table. 

Thank you for giving me my love for food and showing me how to cook and bake. 

Thank you for teaching me how to listen and breathe. 

Thank you for always making me feel beautiful and comfortable. 

Thank you for trusting me. 

Thank you for your unconditional love even when it was not always easy to give. 

Thank you, for giving me, everything. 

Love you always,

Delia

Wherever you are tomorrow friends, whoever you are celebrating with, whoever your mother figure is – I hope you have a wonderful day.
