Thank you, thank you, and thank you.
I do not know if, nor do I think I will ever get to say this to you enough.
Now I know you should be thanked every single day when the sun rises, and not only on this very special holiday. Because today is the day acknowledged as the official Mother’s Day, I will spur on the occasion to reciprocate the love and affection you’ve showered me with from the day you came into my life.
A mother is not only a woman who gives birth to a child. Sometimes the best mothers aren’t the best ones–I love my birth mom to death–pun intended. A woman who has been able to give love in every single way and corner of her life to another woman’s child sometimes makes the perfect mother, which in my case I was blessed with both. Thus I will seize this moment to say thank you, thank you, and thank you endless times.
Thank you for not only playing the role of the best step-mother in the entire universe but also of a best friend, the best confidante one could ever wish for.
Thank you for being a great life mentor.
Thank you for not only being there as a loving, and caring mother but also you should be acquired the award of best dad as well.
Thank you for getting mad at me when I was in the wrong.
Thank you for giving me love a mother can give to her own son.
Loving a kid you gave birth to is a natural maternal love, but loving a stepson as much as you love your own is a special talent of yours that was shared with me in the most frabjous way possible.
Thank you for trusting me, and not only seeing me as ‘my husband’s son,’ but also as your own son.
Blood might be thicker than water; however, without water blood alone isn’t enough, and for me, I’d chose water over, and over, and over again, for you are the water.
And by the grace of God, you came into my life, and rooms that were dark suddenly lightened up with the glorious lights of your pure, loving heart.
By the grace of God, you’ve fixed bullet holes that no Band-Aid was able to fix.
By the grace of God, your love blooms beautifully, and stronger every day.
Thus for all of this, I say thank you for being a mother, thank you for being a friend, thank you for being there.
I love you dearly.
Happy Mother’s Day 2015!
