I do not remember the day we met, though I wish I did. But I do know one thing, somewhere, in my subconscious, I knew then that you loved me.
I know from stories that it was a cold day, and me being temperamental and determined to do things my own way, came when I was ready…..two weeks early. You know me, I wanted to get more presents :).
Anyway, over the years, we grew up, together, apart and together again. I am pretty sure NO ONE on this planet loves me like you do. And I am also pretty sure NO ONE loves you like I do.
So with that being said, I love you. I love you for all the things you did and didn’t do for me, even when at the time I totally hated you…lol.
Too many times I’m sure I broke your heart, and while I am sure I’m sorry isn’t enough, I am sorry. I can only hope that I have made you proud a greater number of times.
There isn’t much in this world I wouldn’t do for you. If you call my name, I will come running. Quick, fast, and in a hurry.
I hear your voice and I swear I hear angels sing. And when you smile, its like the clouds opened up for the sun to come shining down on me, just for me.
I am honored and humbled to know your name, and to be a twinkle in your eye.
And when I am having a bad day, somehow you know, and send butterflies my way. Lately, they have been everywhere I go, and it always makes me smile; because I know that they are you and you are them.
Anyway, it is said that you should give a person their flowers while they are alive to enjoy them, but I would rather give you butterflies.
I love you Mom, because you give me butterflies.
