Words cannot express how much I love you. I know it was an extremely hard time for you when I was in middle/high school and I know I was a total jerk to you during those times, but now I have come to learn and appreciate you so much, and I think that is because I have matured and realized what you have done for me. I was a rebellious teen, but now I think about all the things I can do to help you and our family. I can’t believe where I am now, that I ever treated you so poorly and we would fight all the time, but I know now you were just looking out for me and doing the best you could do. I know your job has been super hard and stressful on you lately, so when I was home I did everything I could to make life easier for you. I cooked, I cleaned, I talked to you to calm you down, and we watched movies every night together. I began to realize I needed to cherish these times together because you won’t be around forever and it hurts me to know that. You are my best friend. I can talk to you about anything I am going through and I know you are the only person I can trust and talk to and you won’t leave me. It has been hard for me in college because I am in Virginia, and you are all the way in Georgia, so I rarely get to see you, but I call you everyday (sometimes multiple times a day) because I miss you so much. I have already gone through countless traumatic experiences throughout my life and you are the only person that truly knows what I have been through and has been there to support and comfort me through these times. You do not realize how much that means to me and how grateful I am for you. I just want you to know that I love you so much and I could not ask for a better mother. Thank you for being you.
For this assignment bank, I chose to do the writing assignment, To My Mom, which had a 4 star value. The assignment was to write your mom a letter with what you have always wanted to say to her. This assignment was a little difficult for me because I am not good with putting down words with how I feel. I know my mom knows I love and appreciate her, but when I wrote it out and thought about everything she has done for me, it made me tear up. All I want to do is make my mom proud, and I am doing everything I can to show her that. Writing this letter, I can always look back at it to see my appreciation for my mom and how it will only continue to go up from here.
