I Think I Wrote This To Myself

Dear Mother,

There will be days that feel like Christmas morning- when you wake up and look at your sweet child and feel so incredibly blessed and lucky. Amazed that you get to be their Mom. Like opening a new package each time.

There will be nights when you check on them while they are sleeping and you'll want to wake them and kiss them and tell them you're sorry. For how the day went, for how you snapped or didn't have patience or pay enough attention.

There will be heartaches that will only draw you closer. There will be hard times that make the good times shine so bright.

And there will be love. Lots and lots of love.

There will be so many times you feel like you've failed. But in the eyes, heart, and mind of your child you ARE Super Mom. You are their world. And you are doing a fabulous job.

Love,
Stephanie Precourt

  2. Steph, you spoke of my heart and to my heart. You nailed it! Isn't it the truth; some days go swell and some days, we wish we could erase from the pages of life completely and we all learn from all of them! Your letter was soooo Beautifully put!

  15. Sweet letter! I need that right now - I just spent an hour "strongly" encouraging my little girl to sleep amidst many tears and am feeling a little unmotherly at the moment.

  21. That was beautiful! I also have those times wherein I feel that I should have stretched my patience some more. Motherhood is a lifetime commitment, and I'm happily coping each day with lots of love!

  22. Don't know how I missed this. So very true! And there will be days when you think you can't possibly do "this" anymore and then they give you a smile that melts the heart and gives you that boost you so badly needed.

  23. Thanks for that! It's lovely... something to tuck away and remember to share with a friend (or myself) on a rough day.

  25. Dear Adventurer,

    Your mother-readers really came through. Thank you and all your readers for helping me with this project. It has been such a blessing so far and I can't wait for my wife to get her hands on all the letters.

    Thanks again,

    Danny
