A note from her expecting child…

From a special guest-

Dear Mom,

What’s your secret?!?  How did you manage to love me, nurture me, and teach me when your heart was heavy; when the storms of life were too much to bear?  How did you pay for food, water, shelter and school trips, Girl Scout experiences, frilly dresses and those Guess jeans I just had to have when you weren’t getting any help?  How did you stay strong for so long?  How did you do it?!?  All that I am and all that I become I owe to you – every degree, accolade, kudos and honor is all YOURS!  You did damn well! 

As I embark on the biggest journey of my life – becoming a mother myself – I hope and pray that I can be a fraction of the mother to my son that you were to me!  I have to admit that I am scared to death to become a mom!  I don’t want to fail!  You’ve set the bar high.  You strong, beautiful, amazing SINGLE mother You!  THANK YOU!  So, tell me…what was your secret? 

With love,

Your daughter
