Daily Prompt: Dear Mom
Write a letter to your mom. Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to.
I was going to write a letter to my mom, and still might, but that will be difficult, painful, and I’m not sure I really want to do it. What I’m doing instead, is writing a letter to my Mom-in-laws. Mr. The Cheeky Diva’s incredible mom and step mom.
Dear Jo and Gina,
You are two of the most wonderful and admirable women I have ever met, and I’m so happy and honored to be a part of this family. It’s so nice to finally have a mother/daughter relationship like I always hoped to have. Bonus for me, I get to do that with 2 count-em 2 wonderful moms!
I love each of you for different reasons, but you do share many traits in common that I admire. You’re both sweet, you’re both funny, and you’re both totally badass!
I admire both of you for your sense of humor, your strength and your positive attitudes. I hope when I have a huge family of kids and grandkids to herd and guide, that I can do it with the same kindness, patience and warmth that I have seen so many times from you both.
Life has thrown each of you some curveballs, but you fight your battles like ninjas, with a stiff upper lip, a deep faith, and knowing that “hell yeah, I’m gonna win this, just watch me!” Can’t tell you how much I admire that, especially days (like yesterday) when I’m knee-deep in a pity party I don’t really deserve to give myself. (Shame on me.)
I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you feel safe knowing your dear boy is in good hands, and that I will do everything in my power to make sure he has lots of “super sparkly” days ahead of him.
I wish we could see you more, and here’s hoping that you too, have many “super sparkly” days as well.
Love ya both so much!
Your squirrely dork-in-law,
