Dear Mama,

I don’t know where to start. This seems like such an impossible task, trying to put into words everything I want to say to you.

I could talk about all the amazing things you’ve done for me throughout my life, or how much I love and appreciate you. But none of that feels like enough.

The truth is, words cannot truly express how grateful I am for everything you’ve done for me.

You are the strongest and most beautiful woman I know, inside and out. You have always been there for me, even when I haven’t deserved it. And that’s why this letter is so important to me. Because it’s a way for me to tell you all of these things that I can never seem to find the right words for.

You taught me everything there was to know about raising babies. Thanks to you I know how to change a diaper, give a bath, and soothe a fussy baby. I know it’s not easy being a mother, but you’ve always made it look effortless.

You are the best role model I could have ever asked for. You taught me how to be strong and independent, but also how to be compassionate and understanding. You’ve always been there for me, even when I haven’t been the best daughter.

I gave my daughter your name as her middle name. It was the best way I could think of to honor you and everything you’ve done for me. I was so stuck on finding a good baby name to go with it, I always knew she would have your middle name.

I was so clueless when I had my first baby, and your newborn baby tips helped me so much.

When I had the twins, I thought raising twins would be hard, but you were there for me. You helped me with the babies and showed me how to do it. You were always there for me when I needed you.

I didn’t think I could breastfeed twins, but you came, cooked me healthy dinners and got me through it. You’ve always given me the best breastfeeding advice and I know my kids are happy and healthy because of you.

When it came to diapering, you supported me with cloth diapering. You taught me about diaper rash and the best home remedies to deal with it.

I don’t know where I would be without you, Mama. You’ve always been my rock, my protector, and my best friend. I love you so much, more than you could ever possibly know.

It doesn’t seem like enough to just say thank you. You are the reason I am who I am today, and I am so grateful for that. I love you, Mama. Thank you for everything.

I know I don’t say it enough, but I love you Mama. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I am so grateful to have you in my life.

Love,

Your greatful daughter

P.S. I hope one day I can be even half the woman that you are. You’re my hero, Mama. I love you!””
