To every mother who is single,
You have been the strength your child has needed. During the times you felt like you couldn’t provide enough, you provided comfort and love – which was more than enough. During the times where you cried because you felt like you needed support, I thank you for staying strong enough because you knew your kids needed you. You had to be not just the mother but the father in so many occasions. Your strength and resilience cannot even compare to anyone else. You are loved. You are strong. You are courageous.
To the birth mothers who placed for adoption,
Thank you for sacrificing your body for 9 months, only to be so humble enough to place your baby with a family who cannot bare children. You are admirable, humble, and nothing is greater than a love so strong and so abundant than those who would do anything in order to make a better future for their child – even if it means giving them to a family who can provide better. Thank you, for your humility and love. Thank you for giving your child life.
To the mothers who are in the army,
You are the reason why mothers are described as strong. You are the reason why many people admire mothers – because the tasks you do, and then come home to nurture your children. That is one hell of a job. Thank you for your service, your sacrifice, your ability to stay strong for your family and still be able to fight for all of us.
To the mothers who have lost a child,
I may never know how much pain and loss you feel, and I may never understand the grieving process you had and still have to go through. But I will tell you – you will see them again one day. As they wait for you, they will look after you. Although the pain will never be permanently gone, you will be able to find a way to keep going, keep pressing forward. You have grown so much strength to help you get through this, and I only wish peace for you. You are loved. By so many. And your child loved you so much. You deserve to be happy and I know your child would want you to live happy for their sake.
For every mother out there,
We love you. We thank you for your constant support and undivided attention. We thank you for every sacrifice you have given us and every opportunity you encouraged us to take. You are beautiful. And for that, I want to say ..
Happy Mother’s Day.
