When you think that you aren't a good enough mom... when you think that your child will never appreciate everything that you've done for them... when you've gone through the horrible teenage years... when you are feeling down... This is for all of you to read and keep in your minds and hearts. This is an email that my dd, Felicia, who is 19yo and has an 8 week old dd of her own now sent me today in response to an email that I sent her. It is partly about the father of her dd who I really dislike and maybe even hate, but I feel that that is me. She is the one who has to work through this and find her own path even when I don't like it.
"Thank you so much just reading this email. It gives me hope that I can be strong, that I can do this. It's just a matter of doing it and doing it right the first time. Taking the time to make sure I do it right the first time and looking out for the best interest in my daughter.
"I can only hope that I will be the mother to her that you have been to me so many times, and give her the opportunities that you have given me so many times. I know we all make mistakes, I know because I have made many, but you were there for me in times I have needed you most. Thank you so much for that.
"It sometimes feels like your the only person who stays when everyone else walks out. When everyone hated me to be with Will you still called me, you still talked to me, and you have tried so hard to accept him when no one else does. Thank you."
Yes, I cried... a LOT. :) I think I'll do it again. LOL How many times does a mother get to see or hear these words?
