Love Letters To Our Children

with 97 comments

PMA International’s Mothers/Advocates are working heart-to-heart and hand-to-hand with PMA INTL’s Network Hear Us Now!! ( H.U.N) to educate and communicate the deep love a mother has for her child. Our intention is to help the moms express their deep devoted love for their children, and help strengthen the mother/child bond, moving their relationship forward in a loving and positive way. This page is for protective mothers to express their love for their children. Please do not use your child’s name or your name in this process. You may use a specific event or something unique and special in your child’s life known only to them to identify yourself. We feel confident that your child will feel your outpouring of love for them in their hearts.Please also join our “Love Letters To Our Children ongoing Facebook event ( link below)
Leave a legacy of love for your child.

WHAT IS A LOVE LETTER?? Love letters are positive affirmations and/or love poems sent to children who have been impacted by family court and/or CPS rulings that have caused disruption in their lives, or estrangement from their mothers. Love Letters are general messages that convey hope, expressions of affection, and validation that these children are not forgotten–but are cherished and loved. Love Letters similarly provide support to the Moms and the family and friends affected. For safety reasons,we strong suggest these messages remain anonymous, but we are confident that the intent and spirit of each letter will relay a powerful, and positive message when viewed.

WHY AN EVENT? Love Letters to Our Children is an event designed to encourage Protective Moms, family members, friends supporters and others who have been estranged from a child due to an unjust Family Court/CPS ruling. Our intention is to use these positive messages to provide a safe place where children can receive a “love letter” and offering a place for Protective Moms and their supporters to network, and provide support to each other.

POSTING GUIDELINES: Please post pictures, quotes, videos or other general messages that relay a positive message, or offer support. DO NOT post any information which may identify you ( if possible) most important please do not identify your minor child /children including legal name, location, case details, names of those involved in your case etc Please do not use your child’s name or your name in this process. We suggest ,you use only initials. You may post positive, quotes, poems, songs pictures and message for your child. Please keep your posts general. We feel confident that your child will feel your outpouring of love for them in their hearts.

Here are some ideas on how to create fun, meaningful letters to your child from our U.S.A Regional Director E.J Perth:

The letter you write is like a photograph–it will capture a moment in time, an image or an expression that is passed on to your child. Your letter is a gift. The quality of the letter is more important than the “quantity”; bec areful on how you convey your message, avoid sending money and gifts (outside of a holiday, birthday or special event) as this creates as expectation that you may not be able to support long term. The most important part of your letter is the meaning you convey–and how the letter nurtures your relationship to your child.

* Write your letter when you are calm, upbeat and feeling good. The letter should convey your love and care for your child–and should be age appropriate.

Do not send a letter to your child that reflects agitation, fear, anger or other negative emotions. Similarly, do not include in your letters negative comments, remarks or sarcasm about the child’s guardian/parent or living situation. If you find that writing letters is triggering strong emotions, seek support or help. Those emotions are understandable, but should not be passed onto a child.

* Create a positive environment for writing your letter–turn on your favorite music, light a candle, take time to connect with pictures or objects (toys, books, things they made, etc) that remind you of your child, pray, take a walk, etc. It may be hard, especially at first, to write. You may be struggling with emotions or on the verge of tears (I have been there myself!). By creating a positive environment, you are putting aside those emotions and/or stressors so you can focus on your child, and convey a message that is both meaningful and supportive.

* Send the letters consistently (ie on holidays, weekly, monthly, etc). You may also consider using stamps that are cute or fun, or using decorative envelopes.

* Consider poetry! Poetry is a fun, and expressive way of communicating to your child. You may want to send a humorous, or age appropriate poem for your child. Nursery rhymes are also great. Jack Prelutsky writes some humorous poems for children that may be fun to include.

Try an acrostic poem: write your child’s name on a piece of paper, and for each letter of the name write something descriptive, funny or memorable about your child.

This link creates a “Name Poem” for your child. It’s really cool, and a great way to let your child know you care. When you visit the link, you answer a few questions and type it into a blank field. When you are all done, you click a button to generate your poem then print:

http://ettcweb.lr.k12.nj.us/forms/_vti_bin/shtml.dll/namepoem.htm

Online Poetry for Children (Various Subjects):

http://www.poetry-online.org/childrens_poetry_resource_index.htm

* Send cartoons, comic strips or newspaper articles. Find subjects your child may be interested in and clip articles. Or clip articles that talk about places you have visited. Thrift stores and garage sales are a great place to find articles or magazines for children.

* Send pictures. The pictures could include you, your children, your friends, your family members, or things your children are interested in (animals, places, celebrities, etc).

* Create a letter with pictures. This works well if your child is young and does not read very well. Draw pictures on the letter to tell a story, or clip pictures from magazines.

* Give your child positive affirmations. It is so important to let your child know that you love them, and that you care. Affirmations boost self esteem, make you feel better and provide hope. You may also include prayers, Scriptures or other messages that are a part of your family, traditions or spiritual beliefs. For example, fortune cookies are a form of affirmations.

“The Children Lights” site gives information on how affirmations work, why they are important to a child’s development and includes tips on how to create affirmations:Affirmations are positive statements about who we are, and what we can become and experience…The key in using affirmations effectively is to have them evoke positive emotions within us.”

http://www.childrenlights.com/Articles/article_empowering_children_affirmations.htm

* Send postcards from new or unusual places.

* Send jokes, riddles or “Mad Libs”.

Aha Jokes is a great site to get jokes for kids on a variety of topics:http://www.ahajokes.com/animal_jokes_for_kids.html

* Send Autographs. Send your child autographs from friends, family, pets (include pictures of animals or paw prints) or if you are lucky–from a celebrity. You may consider including letters from others within your own letter.

  1. To My Children:

    I love you so much, and pray for you every day. Even when you cannot see me, I keep you close in my heart.

    Remember the time we played “Space”? You dressed up in your Eeyore space costume, and you dressed up in a windbreak with the hood pulled tight over your face. We rode our rocket–the push car decorated with sparkly streamers, zooming across the house. We leaped and danced, and laughed across the living room imagining that we were flying through distant galaxies.

    Every night I pray for you, and send my love –it flies across space on an imaginary rocket, landing softly as a kiss on your cheek. I thank God for you, and for the blessing to be your mom. I love you always. And hope and pray we can be together soon.

  12. My Children
    © Bertha C. Blankenship
    My children are very smart,
    Both of them have a great big heart.
    They both are growing up each and every day,
    In their own unique and special way.
    Both of my children are filled with joy,
    I love them dearly both my girl and boy.
    When I am sad and have a bad day,
    Both of my children know how to make my hurt go away.
    I love my children more than words could ever say,
    I am very greatful that they are alive each and every day.
    They mean more to me than anyone will ever know,
    When the children are not around me the days seem to go by so slow.
    Everyday brings a brand new start,
    After all my children are my heart.
    I thank God each and every day,
    That he sent two beautiful angels my way.

  13. Did you ever wonder how a child ended up with a specific mother? According to Sufi mysticism, the soul of the child looks down at the world and sees every soul that resides in every woman. When he finds the one that will be able to help him fulfill his life’s purpose, he makes his choice. The relationship between the mother and child is no accident. At times the child may reject his mother and wish he had a different one. Remember your soul made the choice for a reason. This woman can help you live your purpose.

  14. A poem I wrote for my second, born son, whom I love with all my soul, and wait to be reunited with.

    how I long to again be able to freely touch your face
    and to hold you in my arms in a gentle embrace
    to be able to speak your name
    for you to know I love you, always
    to be able to hear you say
    “I love you too, mommy”
    no more would I exist, exiled in agony
    with hands that feel useless and arms that are empty
    no more denying that you’re my baby
    that I’m your mom, you grew inside of me
    no more alienation, only unity
    our sacred bond would blossom, openly
    with the purest love, in all its glory.

  15. “One step closer” an original by me, Jennifer Dunn
    (based on Christina Peri’s A thousand years and sung to the same melody)

    Heart still aches
    Memories I can’t erase
    I try to be brave
    I try to hold on though I’m afraid
    I’ll fall
    I’m finding it hard to cope
    But I have faith, believing our reunion is just

    One step closer

    [Chorus:]
    Someday I hope you will reach out for me
    When you do you will see
    I have loved you for all these years
    And I’ll love you forever more

    Time goes fast
    Sorrow and loneliness
    How to be brave
    How to be strong when I’m in all this pain
    I’m standing I wont be shamed
    All of my strength
    Every breath I take brings me…

    One step closer

    [Chorus:]
    Someday I hope you will reach out for me
    When you do you will see
    I have loved you for all these years
    And I’ll love you forever more

    And every day I’m alive I will stay true
    Fate will lead your heart to me
    I have loved you for all these years
    And I’ll love you forever more

    One step closer
    One step closer

    [Chorus:]
    Someday I hope you will reach out for me
    When you do you will see
    I have loved you for all these years
    And I’ll love you forever more

    And every day I’m alive I will stay true
    Fate will lead your heart to me
    I have loved you for all these years
    And I’ll love you forever more

  16. For my boys (I have them shared, but I wanted to see them here)..
    By S.L

    I love you.. you amazing boys..
    I love you to the moon and stars
    And beyond
    My two brave children
    Growing up to fast
    With knowledge that exceeds your years
    Of injustice that did you wrong
    I saw you fight and stand your ground
    To be trumpled on.. but you carried on
    You are brave Young warroirs
    Who said no more
    With hearts of gold
    I believed you boys.
    In the face of the deep dark court
    You stood your ground
    I know you face the man behind the mask
    I love you my children
    Its never a life I wanted for you
    One day you’ll be older
    And your wish of peace in your life
    Will come very true.

    With love.. Mum

  17. What I Would Do For You
    © Jayne Sena
    I would do just about anything you’d ask,
    For you there’s nothing I wouldn’t do, there’s no such task.

    I would walk without my shoes to the end of the Earth,
    I would give up anything I had to, to teach you self worth.

    I would hold your hand every minute of every day,
    But I won’t because I know you need to find your own way.

    I would surely bear the heartache of your first love that’s real,
    Even though I can’t, I will naturally feel as you feel.

    I would sell my soul if it would keep you happy forever,
    I would give my right arm to keep us forever together.

    I would run a hundred miles up-hill in the rain,
    Just to guarantee that you will never feel pain.

    I would laugh with you even if I was sad,
    I will give you a smile even if I’m mad.

    I can only accept your mistakes with a grin on my face,
    I will guide you in correcting them, but at your own pace.

    I will guide you through life, as this world can get quite wild,
    Just don’t you ever forget that you will always be my child.

  18. Protective mothers do anything to protect their children and fight to stay in their lives. In this classic book by Margaret Wise Brown, the bunny mother does anything to be with her baby bunny when he tries to run away. XO

    Once there was a little bunny who wanted to run away.
    So he said to his mother, “I am running away.”
    “If you run away,” said his mother, “I will run after you.
    For you are my little bunny.”

    “If you run after me,” said the little bunny,
    “I will become a fish in a trout stream
    and I will swim away from you.”

    “If you become a fish in a trout stream,” said his mother,
    “I will become a fisherman and I will fish for you.”

    “If you become a fisherman,” said the little bunny,
    “I will become a rock on the mountain, high above you.”

    “If you become a rock on the mountain high above me,”
    said his mother, “I will become a mountain climber,
    and I will climb to where you are.”

    “If you become a mountain climber,”
    said the little bunny,
    “I will be a crocus in a hidden garden.”

    “If you become a crocus in a hidden garden,”
    said his mother, “I will be a gardener. And I will find you.”

    “If you are a gardener and find me,”
    said the little bunny, “I will be a bird
    and fly away from you.”

    “If you become a bird and fly away from me,”
    said his mother, “I will be a tree that you come home to.”

    “If you become a tree,” said the little bunny,
    “I will become a little sailboat,
    and I will sail away from you.”

    “If you become a sailboat and sail away from me,”
    said his mother, “I will become the wind
    and blow you where I want you to go.”

    “If you become the wind and blow me,” said the little bunny,
    “I will join a circus and fly away on a flying trapeze.”

    “If you go flying on a flying trapeze,” said his mother,
    “I will be a tightrope walker,
    and I will walk across the air to you.”

    “If you become a tightrope walker and walk across the air,”
    said the bunny, “I will become a little boy
    and run into a house.”

    “If you become a little boy and run into a house,”
    said the mother bunny, “I will become your mother
    and catch you in my arms and hug you.”

    “Shucks,” said the bunny, “I might just as well
    stay where I am and be your little bunny.”

    And so he did.
    “Have a carrot,” said the mother bunny.

  19. This one goes out to all the Mom’s out there who give it all they’ve got and more.

    My Hero
    © Amelia G. Perkins
    Most people think of a hero as a superstar
    My hero is an everyday person
    My hero is my Mom.

    My mom is a hero she stands for hope
    My mom is a person you see every day
    My mom is there when I’m trying to cope
    My mom was there when I was little and all I wanted to do was play.

    My mom is strong and has beat all odds
    My mom is a teacher and works hard at her job
    My mom is a hero, she is my crystal ball
    My mom is a hero who I know, will catch me if I fall.

    My mom is my shining star
    She is the one I look to when times are hard
    Sure she isn’t perfect but she isn’t that far from it
    But to me she is as perfect as any mom could be.
    Mom you are my hero, my everything!

    *This poem is dedicated to all the moms around the globe*

  20. If I knew today was out last day together…

    You wouldn’t have to clean your room,
    We’d pretend we were landing on the moon
    As we jumped on the bed.

    I’d start a “stinky sock” fight
    Then fall over gagging when one lands in my face
    Later I’d cling to that memory..it’s lingering smell.

    I wouldn’t try to convince that broccoli is good for you
    We’d make ice-cream sundaes for breakfast,
    For lunch, we’d have a food fight
    Then leave the kitchen a complete mess.

    I would turn the bathtub into a beach….
    We’d wear scuba masks and Hawaiian shirts,
    and use our feet as paddles, splashing each other.

    Bedtime would be more than the ritual
    Of getting ready for school in the morning
    We’d camp out on the couch watching “Scooby Doo”,

    And scare each other with spooky noises,
    Unexpected fingers tickling the back of the neck…
    Then fall asleep in a tangle of arms and legs.

    I would wake later, to straighten out your covers
    So you won’t get cold
    And I would have watch you sleep,
    Just as I have every night since you were born
    With your eyes gently closed, and the breath whispering between your lips,
    Peace would creep across the world,
    Like a mother tucking her child in at night.

    If I knew today was our last day together,
    I would tell you “I love you” until my voice grew
    hoarse, and beg God for the strength to wake up knowing

    I would spend the next day
    and the countless next…with out you.

  21. It’s hard
    by S.S

    It’s hard to bear the pain alone
    It’s hard to make your beds
    And throw out the scraps of toys
    That have no use now you are gone

    It’s hard to get up every day
    Without your warmth by my side
    It’s hard to hear the house so still
    Pull out from cupboard one set of clothes

    One foot in front of the other
    One task followed by the next
    Focused on present so I can give you
    The richness of mama not destroyed

    I thought I would give up without you
    I thought I would flee and turn away
    Yet holding on greater to hope here am I
    A strong woman and mother for you, I pray

    Love you now and always

  22. For my oldest,
    by Valerie S

    I can humbly tell you that i do not have all the answers. Please do not forget what I have taught you. When I was pregnant with you. I dedicated you to God. It was only later that I found out that this was in the bible. The firstborn male belongs to God. I look back and remember how quickly you had to grow up, but still you loved God. You were only 8. I have to say that you are one my heroes. You are very brave. Braver than some adults I know. You are worth soooooooooo… much. Do not doubt God my son. No matter how bad things look sometimes. Your Heavenly Father to whom you belong, sent His son Jesus, to takes your place no matter how bad you may feel about yourself sometimes. That is the not God. God’s arm saves you. But I must tell you, it is not always easy. Yeshua, (Jesus Remember?) is God to the Jew first and then the Gentile. Pour out your heart to Him. That is what I do. And I have seen great and marvelous things that He has done. Faith can move mountains. “If God be for you who can be against you?” I was so proud of you when you were reading the Hebrew Bible or (The Old Testament) and I know you, you read the whole thing. Then you saw Yeshua (Jesus) in the B’rit Hadashah (The New Testament). Pray to Him always. He hears you. Sometimes, God moves in His Perfect timing and not in ours. Be paitient. Your prayers have all already been answered. And your angel, that always beholds the face of your Heavenly Father, is just waiting for you to learn of Him. You have a big heart son. Use it well. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. Love others as you want to be loved.” Do not let ANYONE still your JOY and Laughter!!! Be yourself, but be wise about what is wrong or right according to God’s Word, not the words of anyone else. I love you. I miss you. I pray for you. I am your mother and nothing you could ever do or say can stop that love I have for you. Blessings to you my firstborn young man of God. May the Lord Bless you and keep you, may the Lord make His face shine upon you, may Adonai (the Lord) lift up His countenence upon you and give you His shalom (His peace). I eagerly wait for us to be together again.

  23. Dear son,

    …You are mine, I am yours, the reason we’re not together
    Is because they wanna keep us apart
    All this time, (in my life) each and every day
    You’re always on my mind, and the memories still remain.

    Love always, your mom, Jennifer.

    God bless you and protect you and refine you, purify you and preserve you through the fire. God bless all the children.

  24. To my youngest son by Valerie S.

    To my youngest son: I have found it very difficult to tell you how I feel about you. You are so witty and your laugh is sooo catching. You are smart, do not let anyone tell you different. When I was pregnant with you the Lord told me to name you your first name. Yakkov is a name that God changed for the man He had chosen to have the twelve tribes of Israel come from. God changed His name to Israel. I hadn’t picked out a middle name but one day the Lord brought to my attention the Archangel Michael. I felt strongly impressed to give you that name. At the time, I did not know all of what I just shared with you. I look back now and see God had you picked out for His Kingdom. I remember when we did that puzzle of all the world and the flags of the nations. You were so excited and you said, “Look mom there is Israel’s flag.” WOW! I was amazed at your excitement! Remember, you and your brother and myself timed ourselves to finish it. You are so good with your hands. I miss watching you build legos so quickly. I would just find the tiny peices and you did the rest!! I remember when us three prayed to God together and you prayed for God to feed the hungry children in Africa. You have a heart my son. Use it for the glory of God. Jesus loves you and He has plans for your life. God hears your prayers because you have Jesus living on the inside of you and because you care about what God cares about. I remember going into your room while you were asleep and I annointed you with oil and your brother as well. Don’t be angry with me and learn to forgive others. None of this has been fair, but God said He wanted Justice for a lot of people. You are very special and I dedicated you to God as well. You belong to Him. No matter what you see or hear, you like to read, so believe what Jesus said to His talmidim (That is Hebrew for disciples.) I remember when you told your brother, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” I loved hearing the Word of God come out of your mouth. You were 5 or 6. Now you are becoming a young man. Remember for yourself what that means. Forgive and stand up for what is right in the Name of Jesus. You have boldness. Fear NOT!! The day I came over was because the Holy Spirit (which is with you/us) impressed upon me that you needed to see me. I tried to fight that feeling for two weeks knowing the court would not like it. I had to see you. I did what I did for you. The look on your face told me everything I had feared. I love you so much my son. I am looking forward to seeing you again. You know that I have done nothing to harm you. I am only guilty of trying to protect you and be your mom. Stand up and say no to what you know is wrong. Stand up for God, and pray to Him about everything. All your problems, whatever is going on in your life. Call on Jesus and watch Him work. Then Thank Him when you see your prayers answered. My heart aches for you. I will love you no matter what you have said or done. Do not let anyone judge you. Care what God thinks not what others think. Love them anyway. I am always your mom and your ONLY mom. Just as you wrote to me. I cherish it.

  25. A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”

    “Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”

    The child further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.”

    God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.”

    Again the child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?”

    God said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”

    “And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?”

    God said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”

    “Who will protect me?”

    God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it’s life.”

    “But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.”

    God said, “Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.”

    At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”

    “You will simply call her, Mom

    I feel like I’ve known you for years and years
    Even though I wasn’t there to dry all your tears
    I cherish the memory of holding you tight
    That night in the hospital when I rocked you all night
    It’s amazing I’ve found you, I want you to know
    Makes me sad that I’ve missed out on watching you grow
    I’m so proud of the beautiful girl you’ve become
    It’s hard to believe that it’s me you came from
    Fifteen years have gone by so quick and so fast
    But it seems like forever since I saw you last
    I hope one day soon we will meet up again
    And something really special between us can begin.

    I wrote this for my daughter lost to adoption the day after her birth. I love you, K.

  27. Thank you for my children
    © 2013 CA J
    I’ll be here to watch you grow…
    I’ll be there all your life and watch the seeds we sew.
    You make life worth singing a song
    When you are right here with me,
    I ‘ll have the strength to go on.

    Thank you for my children,
    Here we are to today, the years have gone by
    you grew before my eyes, time after time
    I’ll hold you in my arms, I hold you close to me
    rock a bye my baby, I’ll rock you to sleep

    And, when I get too old,
    To pick you up in my arms, I just want you to know –
    I have loved every second of watching you grow.
    The life I gave to you was nothing compared to
    The life you gave to me…

    Thank you for my children….

  28. The Invitation by Oriah
    It doesn’t interest me
    what you do for a living.
    I want to know
    what you ache for
    and if you dare to dream
    of meeting your heart’s longing.

    It doesn’t interest me
    how old you are.
    I want to know
    if you will risk
    looking like a fool
    for love
    for your dream
    for the adventure of being alive.
    It doesn’t interest me
    what planets are
    squaring your moon…
    I want to know
    if you have touched
    the centre of your own sorrow
    if you have been opened
    by life’s betrayals
    or have become shrivelled and closed
    from fear of further pain.
    I want to know
    if you can sit with pain
    mine or your own
    without moving to hide it
    or fade it
    or fix it.
    I want to know
    if you can be with joy
    mine or your own
    if you can dance with wildness
    and let the ecstasy fill you
    to the tips of your fingers and toes
    without cautioning us
    to be careful
    to be realistic
    to remember the limitations
    of being human.
    It doesn’t interest me
    if the story you are telling me
    is true.
    I want to know if you can
    disappoint another
    to be true to yourself.
    If you can bear
    the accusation of betrayal
    and not betray your own soul.
    If you can be faithless
    and therefore trustworthy.
    I want to know if you can see Beauty
    even when it is not pretty
    every day.
    And if you can source your own life
    from its presence.
    I want to know
    if you can live with failure
    yours and mine
    and still stand at the edge of the lake
    and shout to the silver of the full moon,
    “Yes.”
    It doesn’t interest me
    to know where you live
    or how much money you have.
    I want to know if you can get up
    after the night of grief and despair
    weary and bruised to the bone
    and do what needs to be done
    to feed the children.
    It doesn’t interest me
    who you know
    or how you came to be here.
    I want to know if you will stand
    in the centre of the fire
    with me
    and not shrink back.
    It doesn’t interest me
    where or what or with whom
    you have studied.
    I want to know
    what sustains you
    from the inside
    when all else falls away.
    I want to know
    if you can be alone
    with yourself
    and if you truly like
    the company you keep
    in the empty moments.

  29. Thank you for watching over me
    All of the sleepless nights you lay awake
    Thank you for knowing when to hold me close
    when to let me go

    Thank you for every stepping stone
    And for the path that always leads me home
    I thank you for the time you took
    to see the heart inside of me

    You gave me the roots to start this life
    and then you gave me wings to fly
    And I learned to dream
    Because you believed in me

    There’s no power like it on this earth
    No treasure equal to its worth
    The gift of a mother’s love

    Thank you for every sunlit day
    That filled the corners of our memory
    Thank you for every selfless unsung deed
    I know you did for me

    Thank you for giving me the choice
    To search my soul till I could find my voice
    And I thank you for teaching me
    To be strong enough to bend

    You gave me the roots to start this life
    and then you gave me wings to fly
    And I learned to dream
    Because you believed in me

    There’s no power like it on this earth
    No treasure equal to its worth
    The gift of a mother’s love

    I thank God for a mother’s love

    Jim Brickman – A Mothers Love Lyrics

  30. To our children; We won’t give up!

    “I Won’t Give Up”

    When I look into your eyes
    It’s like watching the night sky
    Or a beautiful sunrise
    Well, there’s so much they hold
    And just like them old stars
    I see that you’ve come so far
    To be right where you are
    How old is your soul?

    Well, I won’t give up on us
    Even if the skies get rough
    I’m giving you all my love
    I’m still looking up

    And when you’re needing your space
    To do some navigating
    I’ll be here patiently waiting
    To see what you find

    ‘Cause even the stars they burn
    Some even fall to the earth
    We’ve got a lot to learn
    God knows we’re worth it
    No, I won’t give up

    I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
    I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
    Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
    The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
    And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
    For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
    We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
    I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am

    I won’t give up on us
    Even if the skies get rough
    I’m giving you all my love
    I’m still looking up, still looking up.

    Well, I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
    God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
    We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
    God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

    I won’t give up on us
    Even if the skies get rough
    I’m giving you all my love
    I’m still looking up
    Jason Mraz I won’t give up lyrics

  31. Mother
    by Lola R

    Your love was like moonlight
    turning harsh things to beauty,
    so that little wry souls
    reflecting each other obliquely
    as in cracked mirrors . . .
    beheld in your luminous spirit
    their own reflection,
    transfigured as in a shining stream,
    and loved you for what they are not.

    You are less an image in my mind
    than a luster
    I see you in gleams
    pale as star-light on a gray wall . . .

    evanescent as the reflection of a white swan

  32. Rock Me to Sleep
    by Elizabeth Akers Allen

    Backward, turn backward, O Time, in your flight,
    Make me a child again just for tonight!
    Mother, come back from the echoless shore,
    Take me again to your heart as of yore;
    Kiss from my forehead the furrows of care,
    Smooth the few silver threads out of my hair;
    Over my slumbers your loving watch keep;—
    Rock me to sleep, mother, — rock me to sleep!

    Backward, flow backward, O tide of the years!
    I am so weary of toil and of tears,—
    Toil without recompense, tears all in vain,—
    Take them, and give me my childhood again!
    I have grown weary of dust and decay,—
    Weary of flinging my soul-wealth away;
    Weary of sowing for others to reap;—
    Rock me to sleep, mother — rock me to sleep!

    Tired of the hollow, the base, the untrue,
    Mother, O mother, my heart calls for you!
    Many a summer the grass has grown green,
    Blossomed and faded, our faces between:
    Yet, with strong yearning and passionate pain,
    Long I tonight for your presence again.
    Come from the silence so long and so deep;—
    Rock me to sleep, mother, — rock me to sleep!

    Over my heart, in the days that are flown,
    No love like mother-love ever has shone;
    No other worship abides and endures,—
    Faithful, unselfish, and patient like yours:
    None like a mother can charm away pain
    From the sick soul and the world-weary brain.
    Slumber’s soft calms o’er my heavy lids creep;—
    Rock me to sleep, mother, — rock me to sleep!

    Come, let your brown hair, just lighted with gold,
    Fall on your shoulders again as of old;
    Let it drop over my forehead tonight,
    Shading my faint eyes away from the light;
    For with its sunny-edged shadows once more
    Haply will throng the sweet visions of yore;
    Lovingly, softly, its bright billows sweep;—
    Rock me to sleep, mother, — rock me to sleep!

    Mother, dear mother, the years have been long
    Since I last listened your lullaby song:
    Sing, then, and unto my soul it shall seem
    Womanhood’s years have been only a dream.
    Clasped to your heart in a loving embrace,
    With your light lashes just sweeping my face,
    Never hereafter to wake or to weep;—
    Rock me to sleep, mother, — rock me to sleep!

  33. Mother o’ Mine
    by Rudyard Kipling

    If I were hanged on the highest hill,
    Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
    I know whose love would follow me still,
    Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

    If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
    Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
    I know whose tears would come down to me,
    Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

    If I were damned of body and soul,
    I know whose prayers would make me whole,
    Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

  34. “To My Mother”:

    The angels, whispering to one another,
    Can find, among their burning terms of love,
    None so devotional as that of “Mother”
    Edgar Allan Poe

  35. It is our children that teach us the true scope of love.
    A Mother’s Words
    © Joanne S. Walker
    She is my heart, he is my soul
    And without them I am not whole…
    She gave me strength, made me grow
    And once he came my heart was full…
    I gave them life, but, it took them to
    Make me live– there is nothing for those two I would not give…
    It is because of them that I have finally learned what love truly is….

    To my J.. I know your pain. I am your mother. You are not alone in your suffering. You can hear the voice of the Holy Spirit through Jesus Messiah. Cry out to Him. He hears you. I love you with parts of love so deep…..that I can not keep silent about it anymore. Jesus came to set the captives free and I want you to become a warrior for Him!!! Read your Bible if it has not been thrown away.

  37. V. S
    It is sad my sons. That we live in a country where they try to stop you from what You each know in your hearts about God. That was real!!! You know what I am talking about. You were there!!!!

  38. On Children – The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran

    Your children are not your children.
    They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
    They come through you but not from you,
    And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

    You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
    For they have their own thoughts.
    You may house their bodies but not their souls,
    For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
    which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
    You may strive to be like them,
    but seek not to make them like you.
    For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

    You are the bows from which your children
    as living arrows are sent forth.
    The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
    and He bends you with His might
    that His arrows may go swift and far.
    Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
    For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
    so He loves also the bow that is stable.

  41. Thoughts Of You
    © Paula Stone
    Memories of another time still come
    To me and fill my mind, with thoughts
    Of you when you were young. I lie awake
    ‘Till the morning sun comes creeping
    Through my window shade, as I dwell upon
    Mistakes I’ve made. What I would give to
    Go back in time and feel you’re little
    Hand in mine. To cherish each fast and
    Fleeting day. To hold you close and kiss
    Away, each pain that life will have in
    Store and try to give you so much more.
    You are part and will always be, imbedded in the soul of me. While I’m
    Here, I want to say, that I’ve loved you
    Each and every day and when my time on
    Earth is gone.
    The privilege was mine to have been your Mom.

    when i look in your eyes
    love overwhelms me
    i see a love so pure
    and a heart that melts my soul

    i see laughter and smiles
    and an honesty that keeps me entranced
    i stare stupidly at your face
    never wanting to be away from your presence
    but not wanting you to notice

    i want to remain in your presence
    as i lost you so long ago
    i remember your smiles and your laughter
    as your eyes shyly look around

    you love like no other
    but your heart keeps you at a distance
    i will be your mom forever
    even if time takes its toll
    i believe in a God who restores

    and I pray for His healing to complete you

  43. “Thanks for my Child” by Cheryl Pepsi Riler: A Single Mother Sings to her Child
    I’ll stay and watch you grow, Yes I will!
    I’ll raise you by myself, A one woman show.
    You make life worth singing a song
    You make life worth singing a song’
    With you right here with me,
    I ‘ll have the strength to go on.

    Thanks for my child
    Here we are to today, the years have gone by
    Thanks for my child
    you grew before my eyes, time after time
    Thanks for my child
    I’ll hold you in my arms, I hold you close to me
    rock a bye my baby, I’ll rock you to sleep


  44. To our children; “No, there’s nothing that we wouldn’t do
    To make you feel our love.”

    “Make You Feel My Love”

    When the rain is blowing in your face,
    And the whole world is on your case,
    I could offer you a warm embrace
    To make you feel my love.

    When the evening shadows and the stars appear,
    And there is no one there to dry your tears,
    I could hold you for a million years
    To make you feel my love.

    I know you haven’t made your mind up yet,
    But I would never do you wrong.
    I’ve known it from the moment that we met,
    No doubt in my mind where you belong.

    I’d go hungry; I’d go black and blue,
    I’d go crawling down the avenue.
    No, there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
    To make you feel my love.

    The storms are raging on the rolling sea
    And on the highway of regret.
    The winds of change are blowing wild and free,
    You ain’t seen nothing like me yet.

    I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
    Nothing that I wouldn’t do.
    Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
    To make you feel my love
    To make you feel my love

    Adele – Make You Feel My Love Lyrics

  45. “She’s got the fire and the fight of the gypsy
    Ain’t nothing stronger than the heart of Dixie
    The heart of Dixie.. “– Danielle Bradbury (16 years)
    This video is so amazing.. it’s about a woman, Dixie, who is mistreated by her husband & frustrated with her life so she leaves it all to discover who she is, and rebuild her life..her story touches the lives of some teenagers who visit Dixie later in life, and she inspires them to look within for strength, and to recognize their own beauty & value.

  46. This poem is for a grieving parent and reminded us a lot of what a Protective Mom experiences.
    My mommy loved me oh so much,
    I got to come straight here.
    I feel so lucky to have a mom,
    Who had so much love for me.
    I learned my lessons very quickly,
    My mommy set me free.
    I miss my mommy oh so much,
    But I visit her each day.
    When she goes to sleep,
    On her pillow’s where I lay.
    I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek,
    And whisper in her ear.
    “Mommy don’t be sad today, I’m your baby and I’m here.”
    So you see my dear sweet one,
    Your children are Ok.
    Your babies are here in My home,
    They’ll be at heavens gate for you.
    So now you see what makes a mother.
    It’s the feeling in your heart.
    It’s the love you had so much of,
    Right from the very start.
    Though some on earth may not realize you are a mother,
    until their time is done.

    They’ll be up here with Me one day,
    And you’ll know that you’re the best one!
    ~Author Unknown


  47. A mother’s love transcends species and continues for all eternity

    Baby mine, don’t you cry
    Baby mine, dry your eyes
    Rest your head close to my heart
    Never to part, baby of mine

    Little one when you play
    Don’t you mind what they say
    Let those eyes sparkle and shine
    Never a tear, baby of mine

    If they knew sweet little you
    They’d end up loving you too
    All those same people who scold you
    What they’d give just for

    The right to hold you
    From your head to your toes
    You’re so sweet, goodness knows
    You are so precious to me
    Sweet as can be, baby of mine

  48. The Mother Tree

    Memories fall like leaves, skidding across the sidewalk at my feet. Coloring the landscape with painful reminders of my children—the dreams I had for my family, the yearning of what could have been… The falling away from the mother tree. A healthy leaf slowly dies, becoming brittle, it’s edges crumple, colors fade… though torn from the tree it is never forgotten. Those memories will always be a part of me, of who I am. The leaf is broken but with the last of its strengthen, it returns to the ground, to nurture the roots, to give birth to new life in another season. That is how mothers endure the most difficult and impossible situations, they are rooted to the memories of their precious children, in the depths of the cold, dank soil–they reach for light.

  49. “Eons of time I’ve been gestating
    To take a form been hesitating
    From the unmanifest this cosmic conception
    On this earth a fantastic reception
    And then one fateful August morn
    From your being I was born
    With tender love you nurtured a seed
    To your own distress you paid no heed
    Unmindful of any risk and danger
    You decided upon this lonely stranger

    Rainbows, clouds, the deep blue sky
    Glittering birds that fly on high
    Out of fragments you’ve made my whole
    From the elements you fashioned my soul
    Mother dear, you gave me life
    Because of you, no struggle or strife
    You gave me joy and position
    Cared for me without condition
    And if I ever change the world
    It’s from the emotions you’ve unfurl’d
    Your compassion is so sweet and dear
    Your finest feelings I can hear
    I can sense your faintest notion
    The wondrous magic of your love potion

    And now that I have come so far
    Met with every king and czar
    Encountered every color and creed
    Of every passion, every greed
    I go back to that starry night
    With not a fear for muscle or might
    You taught me how to stand and fight
    For every single wrong and right
    Every day without a hold
    I will treasure what you’ve mold
    I will remember every kiss
    Your sweet words I’ll never miss
    No matter where I go from here
    You’re in my heart, my mother dear.”

    By Michael Joseph Jackson.

    I was talking to my little boy: “When you were little I held you in my arms until you fell asleep and then I put you on your tiny blue cot with little teddy bears. Do you remember your crib? You were very young”. – Yes, Mommy was with a monster.
    My 2 years old son was 4 months old when the police arrested his father. Since that day, he sees his father every three months and those visits are awful for him. He cries, begs: “no mami, please”. My heart is broken because I can’t protect him. Because I have to take him every three months for those visits and he can’t understand why he has to go…

  53. “Mother To Child” – lyrics

    On this cool October morning
    As you lie awake and listen
    I really want to thank you
    For making life worth living

    An angel has been sent
    One day the good Lord’s going to take me
    But baby until then
    These are my words to you

    I’ll always be right here
    I’m always on your side
    No matter how the world will change
    You’re still who you are inside
    So baby, have no fear
    And stand for what is right
    This is the best that I can do for you
    With these words I try to find
    From a mother to her child

    I know that you can feel me
    Our bond is straight from Heaven
    The mistakes I’ve made in my life
    Must have been forgiven

    You never know just where
    Where your life is going to take you
    But baby until then
    Just live your every dream

    I’ll always be right here
    I’m always on your side
    No matter how the world will change
    You’re still who you are inside
    So baby, have no fear
    And stand for what is right
    This is the best that I can do for you
    With these words I try to find
    From a mother to her child

    You’ll always be my child

    So baby, have no fear
    And stand for what is right
    This is the best that I can do for you
    With these words I try to find
    From a mother to her child

    I miss my babies, every night I can’t tuck them in, help them with homework, hold them when they hurt, help them find solutions to their problems – teach them to be the men that I would like to see them become…. happy healthy and fulfilled and confident in their choices. I want to encourage good choices, close friendships, silliness, love, joy, non-judgement and an insatiable curiosity about life. I have hope that there will be some positive changes happening but I pray for patience!

  56. L.S
    As I write this, I am in tears. I want to hug you after all of these years. My heart is still broken, I wish the pain would go away. I miss your sweet smile and your laugh too. I wish you were closer so I could just hug you. I missed your voice change and all the young man stuff. I wanted to be with you through all of growing up but that was taken from me, it has been so rough. I love dearly with all of my heart. Please God let my son know how much he is loved!

  57. My Busy Bee, I can’t come up with the words — my throat feels constricted & tears flow as I try to express what all has been buried beneath my conscious. I am not sure I could even walk around were I not blessed with the prayers of those who love & care for us! I can’t wait to hug & see you one day. In the meantime, cherish your heart & take good care. I love you so much. I still have Pinterest boards of many things I wish to share with you! So many memories I live on now — from you keeping cotton balss in your pocket when you were very small, to shaking our “dragon tail” to talking to dragonflies to yelling “Riccola” & watching you enjoy your homeschooled peeps & music friends :0) …. Love always, Momma

    Each little sigh brought the heavens in tune

    With my musical heartbeat, my soul would just bloom!

    I watched you grow soaking in joy with each step

    My love would expand and deepen with each precious breath

    Our home was filled with such love, laughter and song!

    And each morning was one to happily greet dawn

    Each day an exciting adventure watching you learn and explore

    My heart exploding with love till it could take no more

    Since you’ve been gone, my world’s full of gloom

    Dark clouds follow my life, like mysterious evil moons

    Gone is the love, where did it go?

    It left with an unjust court order decades ago.

    Tears swallowed, stuffed down like an overflowed dam

    Emotions numb, shut off, closed as tight as a clam

    I move through life in a robotic sort of way

    Numb to all joy, my soul in decay

    I survive to fight the darkness as best I can

    Praying, waiting for the day, to once again touch your hand

    DECAY © Gayle Summer 2014

    Love letter from my daughter age 12. It was written when we were in a DV shelter;
    I love my mom and she loves me…for longer than eternity. She loves me higher than birds can fly, soaring up in the sky. I love her deeper than the sea…just as I know she loves me. She is something you can’t buy. I will love her until I die.

  60. D.T.H

    Dear Daughter,

    I love you more than words can convey. And I can’t begin to tell you how painful, how agonizing it has been to have been kept from expressing love to my child — to have been prevented from caring for you. And to hear from others of signs you are showing signs of pain & emptiness… I can’t express how desperately difficult this is, & how terrible it feels not to be able to make anyone protect you, let alone be blocked from reaching out & keeping you safe. It (this issue) is not you; it is this situation we’ve been put in — a situation which began a while back
    I will be where you need me to be. You only have to let me know. I would already be there if I knew it did not create trouble for you. I love you. I am here for you, waiting to know what you need me to do under these painful circumstances.

    We are not alone. Other daughters & moms are also going thru this hell. We are praying for each other & for PEACE. But most of all,

    I’m praying for you — your safety & wellness & right to love & enjoy your entire family. (These things all go together.There is no peace with Parental Alienation. Other terms for Parental Alienation are “bond abuse” and “parentectomy.” )

    I MISS YOU — your humor, your sweetness, your curiosity, your creativity, your talent with critters… our experiments with crafts/projects gone wrong, our practical jokes…

    I’m so sad that so much time has been stolen — not just these past few years, but since you were small, too. And so much peaceful mother-daughter & family time was interfered with. But I was happy for you because I thought you had all the caring attention I never had. I also thought (& had been encouraged to believe) that I had less value than others in your life, but now I realize that is a lie.
    So many things I did & decisions I made were about trying to hold things together for our family under the weight of confusion. Although I regret my mistakes, ignorance, lack of parenting skills in an unfamiliar & unsecure situation, I’ve accepted (with the help of others) that I’m human. While no one person should be at the center of any one’s life all the time (and no one, daughter, should limit who you love at any time, including — especially including: yourself), I strongly believe in the value I have in your life, or I would not bother in the face of so much painful rejection.

    Control and rejection are two major components of parental alienation

    You know I stand for forgiveness, inclusiveness, love, harmony, & peace…, but I stand against intentional cruelty, with a heart ready to forgive that, too.

    I am working hard to help others of all ages recognize parental alienation & to support others who are suffering. You have also inspired me to share with others about why someone should consider vegetarian and vegan choices!

    Your loved ones need you to be safe & healthy!!

    But, I am also enjoying all the little blessings & not-so-little things in life, & I pray for the day you will enjoy them with me & your whole family.

    Love always, Momma

    big hug, little hug, little kiss, little hug…

  62. “Never Give Up”
    Visions that can change the world trapped inside an ordinary girl
    She looks just like me too afraid to dream out loud
    And though it’s simple your idea, it won’t make sense to everybody
    You need courage now If you’re gonna persevere
    To fulfill divine purpose, you gotta answer when you’re called
    So don’t be afraid to face the world against all odds
    [Chorus]
    Keep the dream alive don’t let it die
    If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don’t stop
    And never give up, don’t ever give up on you
    Don’t give up
    Every victory comes in time, work today to change tomorrow
    It gets easier, who’s to say that you can’t fly
    Every step you take you get, closer to your destination
    You can feel it now, don’t you know you’re almost there?
    To fulfill divine purpose, you gotta answer when you’re called
    So don’t be afraid to face the world against all odds
    [Chorus]
    Keep the dream alive don’t let it die
    If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don’t stop
    And never give up, don’t ever give up on you
    [Bridge:]
    Who holds the pieces to complete the puzzle?
    The answer that can solve a mystery
    The key that can unlock your understanding
    It’s all inside of you, you have everything you need yeahhhh
    Sooooo, keep the dream alive don’t let it die
    If something deep inside, keeps inspiring you to try don’t stop
    And never give up, don’t ever give up on you
    Sometimes life can place a stumbling block in your way
    But you’re gotta keep the faith, bring what’s deep inside your heart yeah your
    Heart to the light
    And never give up Don’t ever give up on you
    Nooo don’t give up,
    No, no, no, no don’t give up
    Oh, no, no, no, no don’t…give…up

  65. My daughter loved Ariel because she was brave and beautiful. She would tell me “I want to be a True Princess”. She had a seashell toy and when you pressed a button, you would hear Ariel’s voice sing. We would both cry listening to that shell. I just want my Daughter to know you ARE a True Princess, and I love you so very much. ❤ x ❤

  67. Being Protective Mothers, and loving our children deeply and unconditionally, we do our very best to protect them from abuse of all types and from all sources. Below is a cute video for younger children , clearly explaining bullying and how to handle a bully.
    To our children with love, PMA International

  68. When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

    When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit-
    Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
    Life is queer with its twists and turns,

    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a fellow turns about
    When he might have won had he stuck it out.
    Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
    You may succeed with another blow.
    Often the goal is nearer than

    It seems to a faint and faltering man;
    Often the struggler has given up
    Whe he might have captured the victor’s cup;
    And he learned too late when the night came down,
    How close he was to the golden crown.
    Success is failure turned inside out –

    The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It might be near when it seems afar;
    So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
    It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

  69. “Mommy, you came back!”. Sending love and light to this family, and asking for many more reunions like this:

  72. S’mores in Heaven

    Long ago, child, do you remember still?
    When I was a good mother and we made s’mores
    You stabbed each marshmallow, dead-center,
    Always careful to get it just right, delighting in your skill.

    I can still smell those nights, all damp wood and sugar on fire
    You couldn’t resist the urge to watch them burn
    And hold them, torch-triumphant, in upraised fists of glory
    I loved to watch you waving them like power
    Your face clenched in victory over the elements of life
    A simple bag of sugar can make us into gods
    But finally, hungry and ready, you placed your fate into my hands
    And asked for golden brown with full faith.

    You knew, you knew that I was patient, capable and kind
    So I took my time, spinning and spinning over glowing embers
    While you watched like it was church, silent and still
    And when it was finally perfect like the night
    You kept vigil as I slid it so carefully, golden and plump
    Between graham cracker and chocolate, slowly like a prayer
    And when I delivered it safely into your waiting hands
    You knew that it was never just about giving you dessert

  73. Crumbs
    You come to me in memories,
    All outstretched arms and sticky smiles
    Laughing carelessly, free and sure
    Explaining to me in that way you do
    Just how things really work in the world,
    Stunningly accurate for one so small
    Already certain you have something to say
    And I listen as I used to do, enraptured,
    Thinking about the miracles we are
    How making a child seems so simple
    Until you see it happen for yourself
    How you were once a pink wrinkled thing
    Born screaming with hunger and fury
    Not even a little bit afraid to live out loud
    Demanding everything now now now
    How I was putty in your hands
    And you shaped me into mother
    Letting all the pieces not fitting the image
    Fall to the floor like crumbs
    Like memories
    ~ L. D 2014

  74. I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
    Never settle for the path of least resistance
    Livin’ might mean takin’ chances but they’re worth takin’,
    Lovin’ might be a mistake but it’s worth makin’,
    Don’t let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
    When you come close to sellin’ out reconsider,
    Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

  75. For our children:
    “I’m here. I love you. I don’t care if you need to stay up crying all night long, I will stay with you. There’s nothing you can ever do to lose my love.
    I will protect you until you die, and after your death I will still protect you. I am stronger than Depression and I am braver than Loneliness and nothing will ever exhaust me.” — Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)

  76. To my Daughters

    If I could do it all over again,
    I would do things so differently.
    I would know that to be a good role model, I first and foremost need to value and respect the woman I am.
    I would not teach you to color inside the lines.
    I would worry less about money, and more about freedom.
    I would live within our means.
    I would be more honest with myself so I could be more honest with you.
    I would never tell you “shhhhh” in the middle of the day again.
    I would recognize the value of my heart so you could know the value of yours.
    I would know that I couldn’t meet your needs if I didn’t meet my own.
    I would work harder. And smarter.
    I would listen to my gut more.
    I would listen to you more.

    Perhaps, if nothing else, I’ve taught you that you can’t do it over again.
    I hope one day you can forgive me for my mistakes — especially the ones that seem so obvious — and know that I’ve always loved you and did the best I knew how.

    I Won’t Let Go by Rascal Flatts

    It’s like a storm

    That cuts a path
    It’s breaks your will
    It feels like that

    You think you’re lost
    But your not lost on your own
    You’re not alone

    I will stand by you
    I will help you through
    When you’ve done all you can do
    If you can’t cope
    I will dry your eyes
    I will fight your fight
    I will hold you tight
    And I won’t let go

    It hurts my heart
    To see you cry
    I know it’s dark
    This part of life
    Oh it finds us all (finds us all)
    And we’re too small
    To stop the rain
    Oh but when it rains

    I will stand by you
    I will help you through
    When you’ve done all you can do
    And you can’t cope
    I will dry your eyes
    I will fight your fight
    I will hold you tight
    And I won’t let you fall

    Don’t be afraid to fall
    I’m right here to catch you
    I won’t let you down
    It won’t get you down
    You’re gonna make it
    Yeah I know you can make it

    ‘Cause I will stand by you
    I will help you through
    When you’ve done all you can do
    And you can’t cope
    And I will dry your eyes
    I will fight your fight
    I will hold you tight
    And I won’t let go
    Oh I’m gonna hold you
    And I won’t let go
    Won’t let you go
    No I won’t

  79. Gymnastics Class By Donna ( Letter)

    Dear Mom,

    I remember how you’d help me stretch for gymnastics class, and how we would exercise to the silly Richard Simmons video. We would laugh so hard we could barely finish.

    Thank you for your support and mostly for keeping me safe.

    I love you so much!

    Love, Donna
