Where do I even start? It has been almost 22 years since I made you a mom. I’m glad you got me first and not Nat or Sutton. I was clearly the easier child. Maybe not anymore… but I was. 😉 To say this year has been the most difficult of my life would be an understatement. it has been a nightmare with the most wonderful moments mixed in. The day I found out I was pregnant, I was scared and angry and disappointed. I was worried that it would ruin our relationship. Fortunately, I have the most forgiving mama in the world. You talked and walked me through some of the most hard times during my pregnancy. Especially the moment you found out my baby boy was sick. When I tell people the story, I always talk about how (the nurse) pulled you aside and nobody told me anything. I then tell them how thankful I am that you did that for me. Had you told me the moment you found out, I never would have eaten. I never would have been able to enjoy one more hour with the baby I knew before the diagnosis. You took the burden and held onto it while I ate and laughed and enjoyed life as the mom to a healthy baby for one more hour. That shows the kind of person you are. One who carries the burdens for others. You didn’t eat that day. You reminded me of the love that is a mother’s. One who decides what is best for her baby and carries and protects her baby as much as she can. So, thank you. Thank you for reminding me that I will always be your baby. The baby you love the same way I love my baby. You impress me with your love EVERY DAY. You are the most inspiring person, and you deserve the world. I cannot wait to have my baby here with me so I can love him/her and protect him/her the way you continue to do so for me. We are all so so so blessed by you. I love you, Mom.

I love you more.

-> I know you love me more, but I’d like to think I love you more. ❤
