To the Strongest Woman in Our Lives, This is the “Thank You” You Deserve

How do we even start to say thank you to the woman who deserves the world?

In times when we thought we’re alone, you made us feel we belong.

When we thought we had no one to run to, you were always there.

You lifted us when we’re down and carried us through heavy times.

For the times you had to stay up late to take care of us when we’re sick and for the times you had to wake up early even before the roosters crow just to prepare our meals, we can’t thank you enough for all the things you have sacrificed for us. 

We’re sorry if we lose our patience at times when you ask how to navigate an app over and over again when in fact, you never stopped helping us with our homework even if it took a lot of your time when we were little.

We’re sorry for the times you had to endure our shortcomings and worst version of ourselves; for not being able to comfort you on your bad days despite the fact that you were always there to ease our pains; you’re our favorite shoulder to cry on. You are our safe place, mom. 

And we’re truly sorry for the times you had to cry in private when we’re hurt—or worse, for when we hurt you.

Please don’t think that we don’t appreciate you because we do. We really do. 

We love you beyond words. We may not say it enough but, thank you for everything, Mom.

You deserve so much more than just a greeting, you deserve more than the most expensive designer bag, or more than just a staycation—you deserve the world. You deserve to feel special. Not just today. But every day.

We would like to take this day as an opportunity to say how grateful we are to be raised by such a strong woman like you. 

A “thank you” is never enough to match what you’ve done for us.

Happy Mother’s Day!
