A Smiley for Mommy

I am so proud of Kylie. She was determined to write this and spent a good deal of time honoring her selfless, Godly mother.


Dear Mommy,


I love you very much, but I haven’t been able to show it because I’ve been feeling so bad. But in between my naps and moods I have watched you strive to make me happy. And when I feel terrible you’re by my side with some sort of medicine to make it better. But when I thought deeper I realized that those recollections were just from this week, so I thought back further. I realized that you haven’t left my side since before I knew this was cancer because one day we went to get a MRI, and then that weekend you told me we had to spend a few days in the hospital and I was terrified. But you were there for me, even when the “few days” turned into a month. Guess who didn’t leave the hospital once: you. And who went back to the hospital with me every stinkin’ time I had to go back. Now I am starting to feel like a terrible daughter to think that you went through this for me, but I know you would do it again a million times because you are filled with my favorite quality: love. And this story definitely proves that. So this Mother’s Day I could talk about how much I love you, which is an amount that you can’t even imagine, but I realized this mother’s day how much you love me, which I’m starting to think is an amount even the great Walt Disney couldn’t imagine. So along with loving on you a bunch for your special day, I’m going to thank you for loving me MUCH more than I deserve. I love you Mom, and I hope this letter didn’t make you cry, and I’m sorry if it did. Thank you for everything you do plus a special thanks for what you’ve done these past few months. I know I haven’t been the most fun kid to work with, so thanks for putting up with me, too. You’re the best mom in the world, and you mean the world to me. Happy Mother’s Day!

With Loads of Love,
