Been long, I haven’t really poured my heart out to you and I think it’s about time for me to do so. Today, I just want you to know every bit, starting from the very beginning so yeah! Here we go. I hope you’re ready for it all, Mommy!
I don’t remember much about myself as a kid but I obviously do know how I was as a high school kid. I was someone who was so difficult and I’m sure you had a tough time handling all my tantrums. Today, when I look back, the only thing that crosses my mind is how on earth did you even manage to put up with me?! How, Mommy? I used to give you the silly ‘it’s my life and I’m a grown up’ drama which must have been so pissing off for you. If I ever happen to meet some high school kid like myself, today, I think I’d slap them right across their face. Back then, I never listened to you, did whatever my ‘friends’ suggested, acted all weird and rebellious.
As time passed by, I grew up and by God’s grace and your constant support, I changed, drastically. At least, that’s what I’d like to believe.
Today, I’d just like to thank you for everything, Mommy! You’ve supported me through the worst of times. The only person who constantly believed in me and my wacky dreams was you. No matter how I performed, academically or otherwise, you were always there to tell me that it’s okay. When nothing worked out for me and when I lost all hopes, you were the only one to push me and teach me to not give up so soon.
Mom, I’m sorry for all those times that I made life hard for you and I fought with you. I know for a fact that I hurt you, immensely but it was all unintentional. Do forgive me! After all these years, I’ve realized that you were always right and I should have listened to you at every step. I’m sorry to have paid no heed to all your precious advices. I do regret it all but as they say, regretting doesn’t really help. Instead of sitting back and regretting, I’d like to change, for the better. I promise you of this one thing that I’d always try to be better than who I was.
Mom, I have no idea how I’d ever survive without you. You keep me going! You’re much more than someone who gave birth to me, you’re one of my closest friends, my constant support, my advisor and my guide.
Thank you for always being there for me, through thick and thin. You’re truly the best! I hope to make you really proud of me, someday!
With lots of love,
