From my Beautiful Teen on Mother’s Day
I laughed so hard when I got that card from Lauren on Mother’s Day!!
The card opens up big and it says:
How ‘Bout a BIG MOM-SIZED HUG?!
Happy Mother’s Day from Me! Me! Me!
Inside she writes:
I Love you very much and even though I don’t show it your opinion really does mean a lot.
I don’t want to disappoint you.
That’s the last thing I want to do.
I’m gonna try my hardest to beat this and with God’s help I know I can.
Please be patient with me.
I Love you very much - Lauren
She doesn’t want to disappoint me just like I never wanted to disappoint my own mother.
What a tragic cycle this can turn into if somebody doesn’t step on it and break it!
I don’t think Lauren reads my blog but just in case she stumbles on this one day..
I hope she is confident and knows just how much her Dad and I love her and that she could never be a disappointment.
We believe in you Lauren, we love you, and you will go far in life.
Life is a journey and you will be just fine. Never forget that you deserve nothing but the best!
WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
