My Dearest Daughter, I cannot believe that you are old enough to make your confirmation!! The time has flown by for me!
I may not have disciplined you enough, or maybe I disciplined you too much. I know at times, I drove you nuts! I fed you and bathed you and clothed you. I bought you toys.
I sang to you, read to you, taught you. You were my boy, my precious, baby boy. I got up with you to send you to school. I stroked your forehead and hair when you were sick. I knew you were not feeling well, because you let me do these things.
You were never very cuddly. I paid for heat to keep you warm. I stared at you for days, after you were born.
I kept you safe. I kept you clean. I soothed you when you cried.

When you were two, I wrote you a song. I made it up on the spot, while brushing your teeth, to distract you. You were always so active and wiggly. Keeping still for those few minutes required drastic measures!
I wrote down the lyrics, and eventually put it to music. I now sing it to your little cousins. I supported you in most of the decisions you made. I encouraged you to be great. When you were thirteen or fourteen and wanted to come home drunk?
You learned it, too. You never let yourself get in a predicament like that again. When you were on the high school football team, I went to your games.
Even though I wrapped myself in a blanket, I still froze and felt the freezing effects of the wind whipping through my bones and at my face as I sat on the bleachers, while you worked up a sweat on the field.
I tried to be the best single mother I could be to you, my only child. I sacrificed aspects of my life to enhance yours. I did this many times, for many years. I loved you from the moment I felt you inside my belly, flailing your tiny arms.
