Mom, I see you.

Mom, I want you to know that I truly see you. I see all the incredible things you've done for me and the sacrifices you've made to protect me. I appreciate the time you've devoted to being with me, helping me grow, and creating wonderful memories together. Your determination and resilience, the grit you've shown to overcome challenges and be the best parent for your children, are inspiring.

Now that I'm a mother myself, I understand the depth of love you've always had for me. It's a love so profound that even the mere thought of losing your child can be soul-crushing. I've always felt incredibly loved by you, and I want to express my gratitude for your unwavering support through all my triumphs and failures. Your non-judgmental, attentive nature is what I cherish most about you. I owe who I am today to you and the values you've instilled in me—kindness, compassion, and empathy. Some call empathy a gift, and I believe it's a gift from you. I find comfort and pride in seeing your influence in myself, whether I catch a glimpse of your reflection in the mirror or hear your voice in my conversations with others. You are always in my heart, a source of comfort that I will forever cherish.

Almost a year has passed since you lost your beloved mother. I've witnessed your grief and the moments when it seemed like you might crumble, yet you continue to stand strong. I want to thank you for allowing me to see these vulnerable parts of you. I didn't think it was possible, but I love you even more now, especially after her passing. I know that the person you cherished most in this world is gone, and the one you used to share every detail of your life with through text messages is no longer with us. While I can never fully replace her, I am here to support you and try to fill that void. Feel free to text me your worries, doubts, or share your latest crafts and work stories that bring joy and laughter. I want to be there for you and be proud of you like your mother was.

Finley is truly blessed to have you in her life, and I'm eagerly anticipating seeing your loving influence on her as she grows. One of the greatest joys I have ever experienced was the day I gave birth to Finley, and you were there the entire time. You provided invaluable support, putting pressure on my back to alleviate the pain, capturing all the right angles with your camera, and creating a calm and reassuring atmosphere in the room. It was precisely what I needed, and you did it all without me even having to ask. I will always remember the look on your face as I held Finley in my arms for the first time—pure joy. I was not only proud to be Finley's mom but equally proud to be your daughter.

Happy birthday to you mom. May this year be filled with so much peace, joy, and happiness.
