It was your love for me that made it hard for you to let go. You fussed and worried. No one was ever really good enough. But, grudgingly, you came to realize that he truly loved me. He would never hurt me. That your little girl was not so little. That she was in love – the real, forever kind of love.
And so you let go. You helped me plan the most spectacular day – you made most of it possible. You made all the calls I wouldn’t. You spoke to caterers and decorators. You spent hours and hours. And, so I thank you. I thank you for all the work you put into that day. I thank you for all the time and love you put into me. I thank you for loving me, raising me, and letting me go.
I thank you for being the most amazing mom.
I love you.
