If I had just a few pages to write you and tell you what you mean to me, it would only scratch the surface. I know that I have put you through a lot of emotional times and I will probably continue to do so. I don’t know how you have been so strong through it all but “Thank You” and…
I STILL LOVE YOU
You hated when I was playing football and get hit so hard by all those big boys but you were the one who said that you didn’t want me to be in band and be picked on (even though I was good at playing the sax…First chair, babi!)…but I still love so…
You hated when I came home disappointed from yet another failed relationship but you encouraged me to try again when I was ready. Besides, she wasn’t good enough for me anyway, right? (And, I still think that it’s cute that you still tell me not to be kissing these girls when I have a son?!) But I still love you and…
You hated when I lost at anything but you would not let me utter the words “I can’t”. You reminded me that can’t is not in the dictionary and even if it was you don’t know the meaning of it. (Mama you still have problems pronouncing words mispronounce anything even if that meant looking it up. The nerve!) But I still love you and I still…
You hated when I lied, cheated, and stole because I was lost. You were there to bail me out when I needed help. But you finally put your foot down and said for me to be a man. (How you put up with me stupidity and continued to believe in me I still don’t know.) For that I love you and I also…
Mama, you WILL have your dream house! You will be retired before 65 (and will probably still look like you’re my age… God bless you!) because I love you!
Loving you always and forever,

Corny but so what! When you write your letter to your Mama or Daddy or guardian you can end it however you want.)
If you have someone that you are grateful for having been in your life. Please stand up and let them know today!!
Write a comment below saying thank you to whomever it is and then tell them (in an email, a text, a phone call if you must. But face-to-face would be best.)
My Mama isn’t perfect but she is the most perfect woman I know and that’s why I can say confidently “YO MAMA AIN’T GOT NOTHIN’ ON MY MAMA!!!”
Keep it as simple as A, B, C’s; 1, 2, 3’s; and, do, re, mi’s!
