It was when I had my first child that I understood how much my mother loved me. - From "From Mother - A Bouquet of Sentiments"
I know you know how much I love you, but I guess I just have not thanked you enough.
Many times, I would let opportunity slip by without telling you how much I appreciate you. We are that close that you even know what’s cooking in my mind even before I can put them in words. I must have assumed that you already know that I love you so. Even if I don’t tell, I know and feel that you do know that.
I want you to know that all the things you have done for us were never in vain because see where we are now. You have made our lives richer with your unconditional love and wisdom.
I take those precious life’s lessons to heart because I am a mom now. All the things that I thought were nagging stuff are now lessons that I share to my daughter. Who would have thought that your exact words then would be my same lines now to my own child? I now feel how you felt before tending to us because every little thing that you have done for us is the same thing I am doing to my child.
Mom, thank you very much for making me and my siblings feel how much you love us. We may not always be together these days nor get to talk the way we used to, but know for a fact that my love and respect for you will always be here in my heart. I am always thinking about you (and dad)…
I am grateful to have you, and for me you are the best. I will not trade you for anyone because you are simply the perfect mom we, your kids could ever ask for. And when my daughter grows up, I will look back and recall the days you have reared us and will apply the same thing because “you simply know it best.”
I salute you mom! For all the things you have done to us – kudos!
I LOVE YOU. WE ALL LOVE YOU! Happy Mom’s Day (23 March 2008).
