Mending The Broken Pieces: A Letter To My Mother

Updated on May 26, 2017
A piece i painted for my mother.
A piece i painted for my mother.

It wasn't until the point that I became a mother that I understood a fraction of what challenges you may have faced in raising us. It was not until I became a mother that I understood that every mother has the best intention for their child regardless of how society or that child may have perceived it. It wasn't until I became a mother that I understood that there is no such thing as perfection and that as mothers we wear many hats and we do the best that we know how to do in that moment. There are many things that as a mother I wish that I would have known and I wish that I could communicate to my children but I can't. And I'm sure there are many details of life that you wish you could communicate to me and you can't. But I wanted to paint this piece of art for you as a token of my visual representation of the woman that you are. I wanted to paint this because I wanted to show my appreciation for everything that you have done in spite of the circumstances and the hand that you were dealt. I wanted to paint this as a small token of my appreciation for every tear you've shed and every wrinkle that you have gained on my behalf. I wanted to paint this piece because I wanted you to know that I see your strengths and I can only dream that one day I will be as strong as you. I know that my life choices have not always and continue to not always leave you satisfied but I want you to know that I am fine and most importantly I want you to know that I am the happiest that i have ever been.

I thank you for all the love and support that you continue to give the kids. I thank you for always being the grandmother that they have grown to love and need. I thank you for always looking out for me and giving me words of wisdom even when you felt that they were being sprinkled on deaf ears. I thank you for all the sleepless nights that I will never know about that you stayed up praying for and thinking about me. I thank you for all the bills that went unpaid so that you could support me and provide my needs. The road between us have definitely not been without its fair share of challenges however I have never lost sight of your amazing strength. I just really hope you know that I appreciate you and all that you have done and all that you continue to do for me and your grand kids. Although I don't say it as often as I should I love you and i thank you for all the sacrifices that you make for me so that I can have the opportunity to be the woman that I am today.
