Today I received a letter.  The front of the envelope said: To An Important Person In My Life.  I opened up the letter and this is what I read:

"We must find time to stop and thank people who make a difference in our lives."
-John F. Kennedy

Dear Mom,
Everyday I start out seeing you.  My whole life started out with you.  Where would or even could I be without you?  You are such a blessing in my life.  Every time I think "mom," there is a smile on my face.  I'm able to tell you anything.  Without you I wouldn't believe.  Without you, I couldn't survive.  Thank you so much for being my mom.  You are unique, and I love you for that.  Dear mom, I will love you forever, no matter what.  
Your Daughter

This is what life is all about.  This is why I get up each morning.  This is why I love so big.  I am blown away and humbled by this letter and at the same time I want to shout from a mountain top.  I love her so much and she loves me so much and our love is so big and I am blessed!  The timing of the letter was perfect.  The words were perfect.  The heart behind it was perfect.  Being a mom is hard and I am always thinking that in some way I am failing and tonight, if even for just one minute, I felt like the exact opposite of a failure.  Wow!  I'm blessed!
