Happy mother' Day, Mom!


Dearest Mom,

Having a mother like you since I was born was the greatest gift and biggest advantage anyone could ever have given me. It is because of the confidence and values that you instilled in me that made me who I am today. Thank you for shaping me into a person who I like and am proud to be. Thank you letting us believe that we could be whoever we wanted to be, do whatever we wanted to do, there were no limitations except our drive, ambition and creativity.

Thank you for never giving up on me when I went through a dark period, when I shut every one out of my life. When loving me must have been like trying to hold a cactus. Thank you for loving me through all of my rejections of help and love.

Thank you for your knowing what to do in an emergency, and thank you for providing us with the things we need to get through the day; and thank you for helping us with our homework if we have trouble understanding it and not getting mad at us if we fail and encouraging us to do better next time and supporting us whenever we are struggling with our schooling.

Thank you for holding my hand when I had my - unbelievable-year, for crying with me afterawards.

Thank you for always having hope for me when I didn't have for myself.

Thank you for telling me not to give up when I said I couldn't do it any more.

Thank you for mediating in the relationship with my sister, I know it mus be very hard for you to be stuck in the middle of the tension that was between us. Thank you for never taking sides, for being there for both of us equally, for being the perfect mother.

Thank you for helping me doing my homework since I went to school for the first time.

Thank you for driving me to school and picking me up from school and all the way for many years.

Thank you for letting me choosing my uni, and also my major for school.

Thank you for all calling, all text messages ever day, since I left home for Uni.

Thank you for your time, always listening for me after I had any test/exam or anything like that until now.

Thank you for always being my mom, while I often make you sad, and cry.

Thank you for teaching us how to pray and taking us to the church. Thank you for our church family, and thank you for teaching us about God and Jesus and all those people from the Bible!

Thank you for praying for me every day and always teach me that We have a Big Father who always looking for us everytime.

Thank you for teaching me to love every people around us especially our family, no matter how they treat you good or not. But you always shares your love.

Thank you, Mama, for teaching us about compassion and caring for other people; thank you for reminding us that even though we may have it bad at times there are always others who have it so far worse; and they are the ones who need our help and our prayers!

Thank you for letting me walk with a boy that I chose until now, even you have a best choice for me.

Thank you for everything you have done for me, thank you for everything you have said, and for all the times when you said nothing and just listened.

Thank you thank you thank you. For a million things, for everything. I don't know what I would do without you. There are so many many more things, small things, big things.

I love you very very much, if I could be half as good a mother to my children as you are to your children, I will have done exceptionally well.

Thank you mother, I love you, more than words can ever express.

For each mile that keeps us apart, there's a warm thought that brings us together.

Happy mother' Day, Mom!


Love'

Poppy

emang bagian yang paling susah yang musti diadepin oleh para ibu adalah ketika anaknya beranjak dewasa. ga gampang mencintai a teenager and you described it very well! you are very lucky indeed, pop!
