Happy Mother’s Day

Dear Mom,
Happy Mother’s Day! Today is a day to celebrate all that you are. Your knowledge, wisdom, encouragement, strength, and dignity have helped to define my siblings and I, in ways I could not imagine possible. Almost 39 years have passed and not a day has gone by that I have not had you in mind. You taught me to be kind, to be patient, to be loving, to be caring, and to be strong. More importantly, you taught me to love and be true to myself. You inspire me and lift me up when the going gets tough. These are all things that I cherish and live by on a daily basis. Words cannot describe the joys of having you as a mother and a best friend. You mean the world to me and I cannot thank God enough for giving me you. It is through your example that I have become the man that I am today. You truly are a phenomenal black woman. I love you with all of my heart. -Jeffrey

And to all the other mothers out there, this day is for you. Happy Mother’s Day!
