You are the embers that warm my heart. You are my treasure and the core of my happiness. You are my son and I am your mother.
You came into this world and completed our family. I enjoyed watching the world through the wonder in your eyes. I learned that boys could be both sensitive and strong by watching you handle life’s challenges. Once I was your protector and now you are mine.
I love our discussions and how we can talk about everything and anything. You are my student, my friend, and my legacy. I hope you will carry fond memories of your childhood wherever you go in this life. And as I’ve told you a million times, always remember that wherever your life does lead, you take my heart with you. If anything should happen to you, my heart would be broken.
I want you to know that having you as my son has been a gift, a privilege, and an honor.
