First of all, the day you were born was a gift to me.
I am still honored I became your mother, and I will forever be proud of you.
Seeing your smile and watching you grow is a reward I would never have imagined.
You are everything to me.
So, if you are asking me what you can give me, you’ve already done enough by being you.
If you still want to give me something, here’s my list:
Hug your sister, love your brother.
Surprise me by doing the dishes, pulling weeds out of the flowerbed, sorting the laundry or feeding the dog.
Turn your socks and your jean legs right-side out.
Offer to help me when you see that I’m tired.
Understand that I’m not perfect.
I love you.
