Day 22: The Best Presents

The best present we can ever receive is the love & admiration from people we love. While many of us celebrated Mother's Day yesterday, it was also a day to celebrate the relationships you share with special people in your life who are not your children, but who you have made an impact on. Motherhood includes caregivers, step-parents, aunts, foster parents, role models, and significant friends -- all relationships which can have profound impacts on people. The best presents I received on Mother's Day were of course sharing the day with my family and having my boys shower me with homemade cards & kisses, but the most emotional gifts that touched my heart till it hurt were these words below from special young women in my life.

Dear Aunt Robyn,
Happy Mother's Day. I love you so much and want to remind you that you have been a great influence in my life. I can't wait to see you and catch up about everything. But most importantly I wanted to remind you that you are very much a mother to me. You have been there through thick and thin. I couldn't have made it this far without you. I appreciate all you have provided me with and want you to know how much I love you. Happy Mothers Day. You are a great mom, who inspires me to be everything I can be.
I love you, Zoe (age 18)

Dear Aunt Robyn,
You are the best person ever. I love you so much. You are like a friend, sister and a mom. Whenever my family is down you help us, you are always there for us. I love coming over to watch TV. It is so funny when you yell at the TV. Sometimes I don't know were to begin because you are such a great person. I love the perfume you wear too. I love you! Happy Mother's Day.
Love, Esme (age 10, wearing the hat)

And from another special young woman in my life, my son Brandon's girlfriend:
Happy Mother's Day Robyn!!
Have a great day. You are such a loving, caring, beautiful, and AWESOME mother!!! I don't think the boys could ask for a better mom than you. Thank you very much for caring for me and taking me in as a daughter. You have done so much for me and I appreciate every little thing;I know I couldn't ask for anyone better than you. I love being around you and hanging out. You are the best!!!
Enjoy your day!
I love you!!!!

We all have the power to brighten the spirits of children in our lives whether we are their mother or not. Gifts like these words are priceless.
