I love being a mother – it beats everything hands down. It’s the best job in the world nothing comes close. It’s not always easy, but I love being a mom. I wrote this letter to my children last Mothers’ day.
When I look upon your faces I only see beauty and will love you forever. The closest that we will ever get to unconditional love, to a wholesome pure love, is the love a parent has for their child. My love for you embraces you with arms that want to hold you tight forever, but as you grow up I will try to open my arms and let you slowly go.
I think if we could try and love each other like this, then we could have a more understanding and gentle world. You my sweet dear children have taught me a great deal about life and loving. It is through you that I learnt to be more patient and tender. From the first moment that I laid eyes upon your little red swollen faces, I understood better what it means to love. Thank you for all the lessons that you have taught me, it has been a pleasure and privilege to be your mother.
