Happy Mother's Day! You have been a mother now for 34 years. How does that feel?
I hope you've loved being a mum to me, DS1 and DS2 because we love having you as our mum. I don't doubt being a mum is hard especially with the lives we have had so far, but you've done it so well.
No matter how much we've been through and how difficult we have been to cope with you have always been there and never gave up on us. Equally we're here for you, we've all taken your side and all support you, because we love you.
You may already know this but i am so proud of the woman you are. It's amazing for me to see you so sad during a horrible time and compare that to how you are now. It shows your strength. It shows you are a good person and although it all may have hindered our relationship a bit at the time it also brought us closer together so I'm thankful for that. I feel that from the way you have brought me up, especially after these last couple of years, I have become very independent and I have been allowed to become me. I've grown up a lot thanks to you. Although that may sound sad to you as if I'm about to fly away it's actually a good thing. It means I won't have to rely on anyone in my life.
You know yourself (even though sometimes you're doubtful). You are an amazing woman/mother/person. And hey, you've got men dropping falling at your feet!! Don't ever doubt you're all the things I've said because I mean it. I love you mum.
Yes, amazing. Well done for being such a fantastic mum. And your DD sounds wonderful - independent, empathetic and kind enough to take the time to put words on paper to tell you how much you mean to her.
