A Love Letter To My Mother

Dear Mom,

There is so much I want to say, but honestly I do not know where to begin, you have gone through so much in years. From the death of a first husband when you were so young and meeting your second who gave all of us wonderful years. Many of us know there is always good and bad when you are being raised as a child, but I would have to say you did an excellent job with raising all of us. When you met your third husband after a divorce I do have to say that I have had the honors of having not one, not two but three wonderful men who I was always proud to call dad. People would say that being married that many times are dysfunctional but to me I believe that people sometimes outgrow one another. You and your second husband remained close friends until his passing last year. Yes, you had your ups and downs but for someone reason, maybe it was due to the youngest siblings but you managed to forgive and forget all that both of you ever disagreed on.

When I was young I remember you bandaging my knees and kissing my boo-boo's. You taught all of us how to be little ladies you certainly did not wish for us to act like spoiled little brats! We learned manners, how to sit and when to keep our skirts down. I remember hanging from a tree in tights and a dress, boy you certainly spanked my bottom, as you know I never did that again. Spankings were allowed when we were growing up and it hasn't seemed to harm me in any way, it certainly did not make me cold or bitter a spanking here and there, it made me respect your point and now I realize what a hard head I was, but mom that is another discussion. I would love when Santa would come he was such a wonderful Santa and I was in awe that he brought us new pajamas and slippers every Christmas, I always thought that the other kids did something naughty because nobody else in the neighborhood had gotten new PJ's and slippers but us.

As I type this tears well up in my eyes because I know that now you are going through so much pain fighting cancer is hard, you not only have one type but you have four types of cancer. I am so happy that the brain is in remission, and I pray that the lung is too. I am thankful that the breast has not spread and I hope they remove cancer in the colon, sometimes I just go upstairs and cry but I know you are a fighter, I know that God has a plan for you and I pray that he does not take you anytime soon, of course all of us know that we do have a pessimistic sister but hey, I have always been the optimist and truly I try to find good in everyone, even when they upset me or break my heart. I have gotten that from you, people may say that you are naive', but what I believe is that you have given me a gift, it has been a beautiful gift, how many people can say that their heart is so giving? You have given me the gift of being creative, strength and belief in myself. You see mom although we may not have always met eye to eye on certain things you supported me regardless if I was wrong. You gave me wings to fly when I was young and pushed me out of the nest, the love you had when we hit the ground was the most unconditional love any mother could give. You let me back into the nest to gather my feathers and let me fly again until I was able to fly on my own.

There have been times recently when I have been snippy it is because I can only hope that you will be around for a long, long time. Besides my husband, you are my heart, my soul, my everything. I now I am like a mother looking after her child with you, but I knew from the time I was small that I would someday take care of you. I could not imagine living life without you, and when that day comes I have to understand that you will not be far away but will always remember that my heart is your heart I will always remember you carried me. There are so many more stories that I could write about, but you know that they are wonderful memories forever etched in my heart and locked in a precious box in my mind and that I thank you from the bottom of my heart to the tips of my toes.

I love you for so many reasons,

I love you because you taught me respect,

I love you because you did not ever neglect,

I love you because you allowed us to be children

I love you because you disciplined with love,

I love you because you taught me how to bake,

I love you because you taught me how to cook,

I love you because even when I failed you never gave up,

I love you because you make me smile,

I love you because you love unconditionally,

I love you because you never placed any conditions on me,

I love you because you believed in me,

I love you because through any sorrow you are my sunshine,

I love you for so many other reasons and these are only a few, but I love you simply because you are only you! Not only on any special day but I will love you forever and always!

Paolocruz: Mom was a big part of my life and I wrote that for her on her last Valentine's day. She will forever be etched in my heart. Thanking you for taking the time to read my letter to my mother and I hope that people find comfort in knowing that our mother's are an important piece of our lives. When they are gone there is always an empty hole in our hearts.

Glen Stok: I will light the candle each year on her birthday. I miss my mother so much. They say time heals; but there is and will always be a big hole in my heart for her. So I can relate and understand. Not only did I lost my mother in 2010 but we lost a wonderful dog nine days later and my Uncle died Mar 11, 2011. My mom was wonderful and I am grateful to be so much like her. She was my best friend. :)

Your mom is to you as my father is to me. Although my father passed away over 30 years ago I still light a candle for him every year on his birthday.

As I read your hub about your mom I related to much of what you said as  things my father did for me. I am so aware that my caring attitude and my creativity came from my father. I can remember specific incidences that helped me grow based on things he said and did.

I can see that you became the wonderful person you are because of the great person your mom was. 

I read some of the comments in this hub and I realize that your mom didn't make it. I am so sorry. I know how you feel, I already lost both parents. My Aunt died around the same time as your mom in 2010.  And she had a great effect on me as well. Very similar to you and your mom. Light that candle. She will see it.

rajan jolly: My condolences to you to Rajan. I am saddened to by the loss of your mother. We have so many fond memories of them and they will always be in our hearts. Reflecting on that last Valentine's day I can still see her face as she smiled when I read it. I cried when I read those words to her and she kept saying, " Julianna stop crying I am still here." Writing these words makes me cry because I loved her so, so much. They say time heals your heart; but mine still has a long, long way to go. I miss her voice, her laughter and presence.

You will miss your mom Rajan and its okay to cry. Its the process we have to go through but we will see them again one day on the other side. Thank you for sharing your memories of your mom on this hub.

FaithDream: They are in our hearts and what you will find on your journey is the words that you have written may still be hard to read. I miss mom so much; but she is still here with me. Remember we are 'our mother's daughter's. They are within in us. Everyone heals at a different pace; but when a mother passes its the hardest thing in life to experience. Thank you so much for coming by and hang in there, you are not alone. (( Hugs))

Julianna, your tribute to your mom not only formed a lump in my throat but moved me to tears as well, all the while I read your letter I visualised the times I spent with my mom and appreciate how caring and loving moms are.

Incidently, I lost my mom in Dec 2010 battling effects of a stroke, a failing heart and from the the effects of breast cancer and Alzheimer. She lost her memory completely during her last months and it was a torture for the family to see how a woman who was so active and full of life was lying so helpless. But till the effect of Alzheimer's took over totally she was concerned about the welfare of her children, even when she was suffering so much physically herself. Even today, these thoughts bring me to tears.

This is a very heartfelt outpouring of your love for your mom and your mom sure must have been very proud of her daughter when you read this letter to her.

jecyl: What a thoughtful comment. Mom passed away in 2010 and this was the last love letter I read to her on Valentine's Day. I cried as I read it; but mom knew where my heart was all along. I will forever love my mom. I wrote a poem for her for Mother's Day and its on another site. It's called Butterflies from Heaven.

When I think of her my heart breaks. I miss her so much that I do not always know what my day will bring. If I do not think about it then the day is good, but when I read words I have written I break down in tears. Thanks for taking time to read the words I wrote to my mom and one day I will find Peace.

What a beautiful love letter and now tribute to your dear mother. I'm sure she was proud to be your Mommy.

What pulls my heartstrings in the sweetest way about this letter is you took the opportunity so often missed to tell her before she left this world of pain.

I pray you have found peace with her passing.

OKUNS DAVE: I understand. I miss my mom too. Although the pain feels very strong now, it will slowly subside. This was written for my mom and it was her last Valentine's day. You will feel empty and sad. But she is with you. I wrote this in my Mother's Journal and will share this with you.

"When you touch your heart, you will feel your mother's heart. When you look at your hands, you may see here. When you look at your eyes, she is looking with you and when you smile, she is smiling with you." I hope you have a brighter day tomorrow and hang in there. Nobody can ever replace your mother, but she is always with you. :)

moonspiration: You should tell your mom you love her. I would recommend as often as possible. Be expressive now, you don't want to have regrets later. I was able to share those words that you just read to my mom on her last Valentine's day. 6 months later she passed away. :( I miss my mom and still cannot read the words that I wrote to her without crying. So since you have your mom please tell her you love her. Tomorrow is never promised.

Every one of us should do the same (as you did) from time to time.

I don't remember the last time I said to my mum that I love her.I really want to say it and show her how much I love her, but there is something deep inside me.. stopping me from doing it. I guess you should write a hub about "How to express our feelings" hehe. This letter touched me in many ways. Thanks for posting it.

She sat on the edge of the bed smiling as her blue eyes also swelled up turning to tears. I knew she then realized how much I loved her. It has been a year and almost a month since she passed away and my heart still hurts for her. I still have trouble reading what I had written to her. I still cry. Thank you for commenting and appreciating the words I wrote to her. :0

Sorry for the lateness. First time I read this letter, and as you told me, God took your mom last August for a BETTER life. The good thing is that Mothers are in us and living through us. They are in our everyday actions... and we keep on going. After a few tears, comes a relieve. After letting out held back emotions, we feel much better and ready to share and give.

How wonderful it must be to have this priceless memory to treasure. It would have been wonderful if your mum had read it herself but to have the daughter who wrote it read it outloud to her with all the emotions right there for mum to witness must have blessed the socks off you both.

When my dad died my mom died too, although she lived another 10 years, within 2 years she had him alive again, just off somewhere. I don't know how I made it through her last four years and I never thought of writing her a letter but many poems and I can't tell you how many times I want to pick up my phone and call her. Mommy's are the most special people on earth, the ones who love their children anyway and teach them love. Very beautiful hub.

we don’t always get our hopes and dreams, and we don’t always get our own way.

but don’t give up hope, because you can make a difference one situation and one person at a time.look for the beauty around you—in nature, in others, in yourself—and believe in the love of friends, family, and humankind.Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

AE,

There are many times in life that things get tougher than anyone can imagine, unfortunately we all go through these times. As we get older it is natural that more grief comes our way. This is unfair to everyone that experiences whatever brings the the pain.

I am empathetic to what you are going through, having lost both parents years ago. They say; "time heals all wounds." I do not agree with that. I have prayed for G-D to rest my parents souls every day, for years.

You are not at that point, and I pray it won't come for many years. In the meantime I know you are doing everything possible for her and will never stop. Your mom is always with you, in your heart and mind. I'm sure she knows how much you love her, like you know the converse.

Hopefully she will be living with you for a long time to come, and will be telling you things you have done wrong. That's something mom's do. May she dance at your sons wedding.

Writing things like this, I frequently place my foot in my mouth. I hope I didn't do it this time, you're too nice.

Hi my dear lovely friend, I was really touched by your story. You certainly are a wonderful writer and a wonderful daugther. Bless you my dear AEvans.:)

Thanks AEvans for opening the door for many to see the love you have, hard to encapsulate in words and yet you have done just that, is it ever enough when it comes to sharing love, can we ever really share it all.

God knows you heart, He has heard...know you are loved by the Father...

Blessings and Hugs

I managed not to weep until I listened to the timeless words of Nat. I was awfully close, though!:)Oh, this is such a lovely letter, AE, and you do her great honor by writing it.

Thanks for sharing.

That was beautiful and touching xx I think your mother is very lucky to have a caring and wounderful daughter as yourself. I wish I could have said something like that to my father, I was to young to understand when he got cancer. god bless you x

That was beautiful my dear....I too am in awe of my dementing Mother and know though whatever we have been through it is meant to be for children to turn around and care for their parents one day. Sounds as if YOU are doing a fine job.

Loved the song, I remember this so well always loved his voice and songs...HAPPY VALENTINES (lOVE) DAY TO YOU...:O) Hugs G-Ma

You might've had three dads J, but only had one mother. I hope that if and when I do have a daughter that she's just like you. Happy Valentine's Day, buddy xox
