dear mom



Dear Mom,

You are my inspiration.
You are the reason I do what I do.
Writing,
singing,
anything.
You are the reason I let myself be creative
let my mind wander,
imagining,
dreaming.
You are the reason I choose to love what I do.

Thank you for giving me the 
confidence,
love,
motivation
I need to do what I do.

Because without your guidance on stuff like this?
You know I’d be a total shipwreck. 

Thank you for teaching me that I am strong
I am powerful
and that I have Christ living inside of me.

Thank you for talking to me when I need it
hugging me when I need it
kissing me when I need it
saying all the right, perfect things.
I know I can always count on you.
Thank you for being there.
Thank you for being so close to me
and not casting me off like an old shoe.

Thank you for telling me that I’m beautiful.

Thank you for showing me there is something 
so much greater inside of me
greater than I ever imagined. 

Thank you.
I love you to the moon and back.

xoxo,
your baby girl

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
