A Letter To My Mommy

In honor of the first Mother’s Day since I have started my blog I thought that in honor of my mom…I would post her a letter.  Plus, I am just so bad at sending cards.

Dear Mommy,

Since I can remember you have always been a huge part of my life.  Let’s face it…you gave birth to me and that’s an ordeal all by itself with my 9lb. 9oz. self.  But I don’t think I truly appreciated you as my mother…until I was a mother as well.

I was a rebellious teenager who thought she knew everything there was to know about the world and oh how I was wrong.  I resented you for so many things the day I left home but now I realize that resentment comes with a high price of pain and that it should never be carried onto any next chapter of life.  I have since let go of all of that and feel a better person because of it.

You have been a wonderful grandma to my babies and they all love you so dearly.  You have also been wonderful at loving my stepsons and never making them feel like you weren’t thinking about them in any less way as your own.  

I know there are times through the years that I have been a difficult daughter and you could have given up on me but you didn’t and I will forever be grateful for that.  You never hesitated 3 times in 3 years to be by my side at the birth of each of my babies and it truly comforted me especially after my first when the emotions of my life changing became a little overwhelming for a moment.  You were there to make me feel better and I love and appreciate you more for it.

You should feel proud on this and every Mother’s Day for you have raised 3 caring, crazy, and loving kids who even through the bumps in the road have found their places in adulthood.  They have stepped up to their responsibilities and we all love you dearly! 

I hope you have a wonderful day today and everyday and hope to see you soon!

Love you always,

Trista ā¤ļø

  1. This made me tear up! I’m missing my mom this Mother’s Day (I live in the UK, she’s back home in Maine!) and just feeling emotional. You are so right with the bit about not appreciating your own mother until you become a mother yourself – one of the biggest things I *got* once I gave birth. How much they do for us, sacrificed for us, etc. Thanks for sharing this lovely letter!

    1. Thank you so much for reading and commenting. My mother only lives 5 hours away but we haven’t seen her since Thanksgiving šŸ˜¦ Just busy with life. And yes I now know what she sacrificed to give me life. I love both my parents and am blessed that I had two loving ones even though they were divorced.


    1. I have actually had a pretty relaxing weekend. Moms are really never fully off duty and my hubby had to work all weekend but my 15 year old has been a huge help! Happy Mother’s Day to you as well my friend! Hope your day was fantastic!


  2. Happy Mother’s Day Tristas mom!! šŸ˜Š Gorgeous letter hun, so touching. It’s true how you appreciate your own mom more after becoming one yourself. 3 babies in 3 years must be really busy! xx

    1. Yes I had all big babies too…hers were all c-sections and so were mine. My mom and I both have very small hips and pelvis’ that never spread during pregnancy so c-sections it was. Thanks for reading love šŸ™‚ hope you had a fabulous day!
