Mother’s Day by Debbie Samson Stein
I would like you to ask for help when you need it.
I would like you to help others when they need it.
When you screw up, and you will, more than once, I would like you to own it, because it’s the screw-ups that make the victories sweeter.
I would like you to travel, because the world is huge and you are one part of it.
I would like you to know that even when we hate each other, I will never stop loving you.
I would like you to feed your curiosity.
I would like you to find a way to do what you love
I would like you to respect every human being’s right to be who they are.
I would like you to sometimes be more interested in someone else than in yourself.
I would like to know that you are flawed and you are extraordinary. There is no one else like you.
I would like to know that I would lay down my life for you both
I would like to realize how lucky you are every once in awhile even if only for an instant.
I would like you to know love, even if it means getting hurt.
I would like you to relax and not feel guilty about it.
I would like you to know life can be brutally hard sometimes.
I would like you to know that you can choose happiness even when the dark side offers you cookies.
And I wouldn’t mind breakfast in bed.
Love you always with all my heart and soul
