A Letter to my Little Boy on Mother’s Day
Did you know you’ve made me the happiest person in the world? I never knew that I could ever feel happiness like this. Or love. I’d never felt such an overpowering weight of love and happiness on my heart before I met you. Some days, it feels like I’ve been hit in the abdomen with a shovel, the love is that intense.
Today marks my first Mother’s Day and I feel so proud that I get to call myself your Mummy. You are such a happy, loving and intelligent little boy. Every day your personality shines through more and more and you make me prouder and prouder.
People tell me you look nothing like me, but I see so much of me in you, things that others can’t see. We spend every waking moment together and so it is inevitable that you’d pick up on my mannerisms and sense of humour. You are easy going and friendly to everyone you meet. I hope that’s because you’ve seen me be kind and gentle with others and you want to be the same.
Did you know I would do anything for you? I’d move heaven and earth to make you happy and I will never let anyone hurt you. Spending the last ten months together has been the happiest and most fulfilling period of time in my life. I finally realise what my purpose is in this world. It’s to look after you and keep you safe and I will never stop doing my best to protect you.
All my love, always.
